Letters: Say ‘no’ to Timmy’s

Sooke should develop into a unique town where folks want to live

feel the need to respond to a letter, “Bring on a Tommy’s”  in the Feb. 20 Sooke News Mirror. In my opinion we do not need a Tim Horton’s restaurant in Sooke.

As downtown Sooke develops, do we really want more corporate style business offering poor value for consumer dollar?  We have that already. Or, do we want to see entrepreneurial creativity providing interesting, and healthier choices for our families?

Tim Horton’s should be kept as far as possible from this town.

Let Sooke develop into an unique place where folks will want to live, visit, enjoy, and spend time and money. People don’t drive out here to visit Tim Hortons!

Do we want Sooke to be an intriguing place, or another humdrum town, with lousy coffee, and food that is mostly sugar and flour?  In this day and age…. we should know, and want better.
