Store owners, wake up! If you think that because a few tourists write bad letters about Nelson’s downtown dog ban that you’re losing business, just think about the business that you will lose from allowing dogs downtown from the thousands of locals that have been supporting you year round since the dog ban.
It is way too easy to shop online or road trip to Kelowna or Spokane. I think most people would rather support local businesses like they have been since the dog ban. We spend thousands of dollars downtown every year, times that a few thousand people and it equals millions of dollars. If you want dogs downtown, we’ll take our money elsewhere. Thanks for the many years we had supporting you.
