We all get used to the way things are and a regular spot to have coffee and conversation is a treasure. The closure of the McDonalds in downtown Canton is a 37 year tradition gone due to an "underperforming" store facing the brave new world of the Governor's Wage Board.
Of course, folks sitting for coffee isn't enough to support a fast food business without a drive through winidow.
A corporate store in a downtown is not easy to find in these parts and there are probably places in the blur of strip development on Route 11.
Usually, people are poo-pooing the chains, but in Canton the building will stand vacant soon until somebody makes it into a dentists office that looks like a McDonalds.
