But Brill is apparently doing more than just leading the charge for the community-owned store; she taking steps to make sure that the local grocery stores are up to par.Thankfully, tomorrow will be the last lecture to the community by the editorial board of the ADE.
Recently, Brill helped initiate a meeting with the district manager and a customer service representative of Grand Union to give the corporation a message: The local stores just aren’t cutting it.
“We told them what they were doing now wasn’t working for us,” Brill said.
But Brill cautioned that she doesn’t want Grand Union to go away. She wants them to improve.

Today they publish an article about two leaders; Gloria Volz (member of Save Saranac Lake Coalition) and Gail Brill.
