Location , Location, Location!
“Location, Location, Location” is a very popular quote in the real estate world. It is a crucial decision in most businesses when planning for potential customer traffic and business success. That being said sometimes locations are purchased by availability and knowing who your neighbours will be can be out of your control. Often at the time of purchasing the property everything may be fine, but other businesses may move in that change how your business is viewed to the public. I believe this is what happened in the following situation.
I was working at an event out of town and while having my morning coffee at a Tim Hortons in town I was enjoying a beautiful morning with the sun shining standing at my car. As I was looking around watching people hustle and bustle through their daily routines I noticed a sign that caught my eye. As I looked at the sign I began to chuckle at the way the sign was arranged. Now I don’t know if the owners of the businesses knew that the signs read the way they did or that they were sending a unique message to those traveling by, but I had to walk over an take a picture of the sign as I enjoy sharing funny stories from the road and events. Due to the businesses in the small plaza I can see why the restaurant named their business the way it did. So I guess you go to the spa to relax, the sex shop for stimulation, then end the date with dinner, and voila! You wake up in the morning pregnant. It is kind of like a one stop shop!
So if you are buying property, look for a good location but be careful as to the other businesses around you. Of course this may be just a clever marketing ploy. Maybe in this town it is a unique destination setting for couples, who knows. It still makes for a funny sign.
