Letters: Support local business

Each week Sooke News Mirror readers express themselves on the Letters to the Editor pages

I am fairly new to Sooke (two years) and am currently in the process of opening a small business.

Recently I placed an add in the Sooke Directory to advertise for my business. Since placing the ad I have had a few people tell me they had done the same in the past for their small businesses and recieved no calls for their services.

I would like to encourage everybody to support local business by picking up their Sooke Directory before referring to the yellow pages. Not only is it good for our local economy but it is put out by our fabulous Lions Club that does so much in our community.

Thank you for your time and keep shopping locally.
