Should lo­cal busi­nesses stay open longer on week­ends and for big events?

Manjimup-Bridgetown Times - - Times News -

Yes. From an ac­com­mo­da­tion provider’s point of view, it’s hard to sell your prod­uct or town if there are no fa­cil­i­ties cater­ing for tourists.

Lila Reynolds, Balin­gup.

We’ve ap­pre­ci­ated Bridgetown cafes be­ing open late on Saturdays when we’re trav­el­ling back from lo­cal ral­lies.

Leanne and Chris Rich­mond, Scar­bor­ough.

Yes and no – it’s good to cater for tourism but lo­cal busi­nesses need to pay staff more. In sum­mer it could be more worth­while.

Frank De Zotti, Bridgetown.

Yes – dur­ing big events it might en­cour­age more peo­ple to town.

Paddy Pem­ber­ton, Man­jimup.

It de­pends on the busi­ness but for busi­nesses such as cafes and restau­rants then yes.

He­len Della Gola, Man­jimup.

Yes, to en­cour­age more peo­ple to the CBD.

Tracey Crom­bie-Wil­son, Man­jimup.
