I really donīt understand the short sightedness of some business owners/managers. We went to the Green Corner last night and the music was excellent (if quiet) this was because one of the establishments close by had called the men in blue and complained that there was music and they objected.
In a town that is slowly curling up and dying due to lack of visitors does it not make sense for businesses to work together, could a restaurant not put his leaflets in a bar and ask them to recommend should any of their clients want to eat. Could the restaurant not reciprocate by saying once you have had your meal why not pop along to xyz they have live music or abc if you want karaoke. Surely it is not rocket science that by helping each other everyone will benefit. Instead it seems that the mentality of some is that if I'm not busy why should you be successful.
