Businesses on Jamaica Avenue 78 - Woodhaven

1- There is a liquor store on Jamaica Avenue between 86th and 85th street on the north side (park side) of the street, I forget the name, that has posted a sign indicating the minimum charge is $12.00. I know recently (2010) and unfortunately Congress passed a law indicating a $10.00 minimum for credit card purchases is legal. However, there is no information indicating that $12.00 is legal.  2- Why are there so many 99 cents stores, corner bodegas, nail salons, and barber shops on EVERY BLOCK? If you want the neigborhood to grow and lure upscale businesses and residence limit these types of stores. It brings the whole neigborhood down. We don't need another 99 cent store. It's starting to look like the South Bronx or worse!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 3- What's up with Sanitation parking like crazy people at 8 am every morning taking up blocks and blocks of space? Yes they are entitled to a break, but can they park legally or stagger their times. It's terrible...the hands are filthy and they are touching the counters and doors at every Bodega 86- 89th street.
