Marco Marzocchi, attorney and pitchman for Widewaters, keeps losing credibility. Remember back in January when he told the Economic Development and Tourism Committee of the Board of Supervisors that T.J. Maxx wouldn't even consider locating in Greenport if there wasn't going to be a Kohl's store? He also said that without a twenty-year PILOT there would be no Kohl's and T.J. Maxx would demand the same deal.
Well, the IDA rejected a twenty-year PILOT for Kohl's and a fifteen-year PILOT, but, even though it's still not clear if Kohl's will build a store in Greenport or not, T.J. Maxx has broken ground for its new store. Amazing.
