Mill Street Bridge
South Amherst Village Center
Meanwhile nicer signs have appeared around South Amherst advertising Atkins Farm Country Market and how to get there. The Atkins Corner construction/destruction has reached the farthest point north, passing the main entry to Hampshire College. Now maybe they will get a tiny taste of what Atkins has endured these past few months.
Lower West Street (RT 116) just above main entry to Hampshire College
Hampshire College is not in session during the summer but they do rent out their facilities for summer camps. Perhaps that's the main reason they decided not to aid Atkins by allowing a simple, easy cut through campus from Rt 116 over to West Bay Road to come within a frisbee toss of Atkins. Now of course you have to drive miles out of the way to get there.
Unfortunately, when faced with those extra miles, more than a few customers go elsewhere. And every customer counts--especially at this time of the year.
