So that people could...
Can feel safe to shop, live, and work downtown. Adding safe places to shop for everyday items is helpful for the busy employee, working and living downtown. This way we don't have to travel outside of downtown for simple items found at market prices.
Because I want San Antonio to be...
friendly and safe. Current convenient stores are not safe for people, especially working women, to enter in alone. Many stores are hang-out spots for drug-dealers and men that harass shoppers. If these stores cleaned up their appearances and we more inviting to tourists, the drug-dealers will leave becuase the location no-longer becomes "low-key".
