Busi­nesses miss out on tourism sea­son by clos­ing early

The Compass - - Editorial -

I’ve had fam­ily vis­it­ing from the U.S.A. for a few days and as they’re from here orig­i­nally they wanted to re­new ex­pe­ri­ences had pre­vi­ously.

We went to Bri­gus on a Wed­nes­day af­ter­noon to view the tun­nel and Wil­cox Gar­dens. When we were hop­ing to get a meal around 7 o’clock, noth­ing opened.

We even had to go to a B&B to use the bath­room, and I thank the lady at The Brit­toner for this priv­i­lege. The lo­cal avail­able fa­cil­i­ties were not de­sir­able to use.

Then in Har­bour Grace on a Fri­day even­ing af­ter view­ing some of our won­der­ful his­tor­i­cal at­trac­tions, we were look­ing for­ward to chips, dress­ing and gravy, but again, noth­ing opened af­ter 8 p.m.

This is prime tourist time folks, mid­dle of July, lovely long evenings, hun­gry peo­ple out sight see­ing all day. Tourism is our in­dus­try and needs lo­cally all of the sup­port we can give. Joy French-Cole­man writes from Har­bour Grace
