Why do we need a new pizza joint? | Letter to the Editor

I was disappointed to read about the coming of yet a third pizzeria to Vashon (“New pizza restaurant slated to open in April,” Feb. 20). Establishments on Vashon have plenty of competition from off-island businesses already. I wasn’t aware that the current two pizzerias were not adequately serving the needs of our population.

The folks at our pizza places work so hard to make a go of it. Toss ‘Em, They’re Awesome didn’t last very long.

Just seems like there could have been some other way of providing a new business on Vashon without such impact to existing businesses. And by the way, the clever idea about naming pizzas for local places on Vashon? Chuck and Carol, owners of The Rock, nailed that idea years ago.
