Businesses also need addresses posted

Dear Editor,

While having address numbers is very important for emergency services, we should not forget how helpful it is for businesses to have addresses posted in visible locations.

How many of us, not actually living in Alex City, have driven up and down the road, trying to see just which block we are on, only to finally pull over, call the business and then have to go by instructions such as, “Well, go past store X, turn right into the parking lot of Y, and that’s where we are”?

Is it that expensive for a business to invest in a few number decals, or is loss of customers cheaper for them?
