Say goodbye to McDonalds.

I just learned that McDonalds is closing down at the end of the month. Interesting timing considering that the college students will be back and they'll be hungry. Not to mention McDonalds is always busy...so I'm curious what the problem is.

And, who will be in there next?

I'm not surprised. The service is iffy and the orders are rarely right.

Most young people today take no pride in their work. No matter what it is. They want to show up and get a paycheck. It really doesn't work that way kids! This is what happens to the business when you think that way!

For the young people that were helpful, professional, and truly seemed to care when my order was screwed up, my heart goes out to you! Rest assured, you should have no problem finding a new job!

To the owners...SHAME ON YOU! You should have been more involved.

whats next to come is not very uplifting to most, what if the ace hardware was to close? what if the city moves to slow to help the down town businesses and all we have down town is a bank a post office ( might get closed soon), and a few insurance offices a place to get your hair cut get cable service buy a t-shirt have a coffee get your pants or suit fitted perfectly pay your city bills, and of course go to the library? Micky D's gone wow pizza down town gone WOW! yes Chinese no Chinese every one needs a Chinese buffet fix,? Moni's mmm real food and fun, but closed for the summer no food down town, and the city is going to even think about paying out $25,000,00 to help a train restaurant and bar get here?? really , spend the money to help the down town !! I bet all the food restaurant and bars that are here now would like the city to help them with that same amount of money, most restaurants in town have spent $100,000.00 to $300,000.00 already to be hear I am sure Micky D's spent even more. City managers and Elders help them with that money at least every one in town can afford a meal or a lunch at Micky D's and all the other places that are already here.. Not on that train at $40.00 to $60.00 a plate wake up get real Rome is burning all around you and the train company and it's five investors can't even pay to get them self here debt free with there bank loan paid off give me a break Mayor stop the madness, Ace hardware we need!! a train to know were selling big priced foods and booze we might like but like every one El's in this city if you can't afford to do it then wait till you can but you never will. Mayor Please don't asking the poor citizens of Baldwin City to give them $25,000.00, Thats what Banks are for Or investores?? ridiculous. WAKE UP.

I wonder what will happen to the future of the Maple leaf festival? come on down to Baldwin city the ghost town , walk around and buy some stuff that other people made in other towns and brought to the good people of Baldwin to buy because if you have no car you cant buy any clothes in this town or shoes , yes with no restaurants they will get to eat the festival food. In stead of every one leaving town because of the big crowds they will stay and go shopping at all the little booths soon less and less people will come to the festival and like the plains trains and automobile for 2012 it will also be cancelled

We used to try to go through the drive-through at B.C. McDonalds on our way to Lawrence when we wanted something quick to eat. 9 out of 10 times we'd end up bailing because it took too long. Didn't matter whether the line was long or not, the wait was too long. So we'd just go to the one by Target in Lawrence at the other end of the road instead. Sometime along the line, we started just automatically going to the one in Lawrence (or somewhere else besides McDonalds). No one wants to wait for McDonalds food. Quick is the only reason to go there!

SAD!!! One of the few things in Baldwin that are also found in a more progressive town. Even if the order wasn't always right at lest we had a McDonald's. People and businesses, it seems, are leaving here like rats on a sinking ship.

Although it is sad to see another business in BC crash, I am not sad to see such a disgusting franchise leave. Do any of you know what the ingredients are in any of those menu items?

Willful ignorance is no excuse.
