Your right , but the ordinances cover those chain stores as well . They wanted to achieve two things by doing that , firstly , keep local business alive , and to preserve the look and flavor of the town , by not allowing modern American generica . It also helps to control growth , many small Maine towns are happy with the way they are . I can understand that , if people want that , they can drive to Portland or elsewhere , not a hardship in that part of the country , as everything is fairly close together .
