Myths scuttled Oregon project

Here are the top 10 myths used to cancel Oregon’s downtown development plan.
10. Placing a Sullivan’s store close to Super Valu would drive Super Valu out of business. Early in the process, Jim Kaufman was asked by Mayor Stone and Finance Commissioner Williams if he could compete against Sullivan’s. Kaufman stated he could compete.
