Another Dunkin’ hurting area businesses

I don’t particularly mind that Dunkin’ Donuts is launching a fourth franchise in Forest Hills.

I do mind that they got the landlord to agree to shut down Bonelle, the nearby small independent pastry shop. Dunkin’ Donuts is obviously afraid to operate close to a real bakery — so much so that it has to resort to an underhanded tactic that limits customer choice and robs our neighborhood of a bit of its character and flavor.

Let’s not welcome this fourth franchise.
