What kind of shoppers are you trying to attract in the town core?

Re: Dollar, quick cash stores a concern (The News, Sept. 24).

Thank you, Deddy Geese.You took the words right out of my mouth and I am sure many other long-time Maple Ridge residents.

I think town planning needs to give their heads a shake, or drive over the river to Whalley.

What kind of shoppers are you trying to attract in the town core? Do we really need three or four cash cheque stores? How busy could they all be.

The city puts all this money into improving 224 Street. We need strong people in place to stand up for our little city.
