Bloomington Task Force: Banning Chain Stores Not A Good Idea

Last updated on Wednesday, December 9, 2009

(BLOOMINGTON, IN) - Bloomington’s Formula Business Task Force unanimously agreed Tuesday that banning chain stores in the city is not a good idea.

The Herald-Times reports even those hoping to restrict chain stores from some parts of town criticized a ban as too heavy-handed and possibly illegal.

In September, Mayor Mark Kruzan asked task force members to discuss potential restrictions during three meetings.

The third and final meeting is set for early next year.
