When it comes to determining the viability of a new business, entrepreneurs are often at a loss for real evidence that their services are both needed and will be supported by local residents. An excellent way to get this critical information is to ask those who would directly influence success – you, the potential customers.

At the Cove Centre we're currently looking at a variety of businesses to fill the space that will be vacant next year when People’s Drug Mart moves to their new location in Q Cove. (See the next article on the Frontpage for details).

We're keen to see that new businesses are a good match for the needs of Quadra Islanders. Informal conversations with residents have shown that a veterinary clinic, a fitness centre, and additional restaurant choices would be welcome additions.

We’d like your help in getting it right, so we are asking you “What type of business or service do you see a need for and would support?"

Please let us know by clicking on the 'Write a Comment' option at the end of this article and sharing your opinion. We appreciate your input in helping determine the most positive choice for a new business at Cove Centre in the summer of 2014.

It would be great to see a veterinary clinic go into the vacant space - lots of us have animals on the island!
