A Little Bit of Good Economic News


Close to my house is an Asian grocery store.  That statement is mostly true.  I call it an Asian grocery store, but they sell Canadian food as well as food from all over the place.  Their philosophy seems to be that they will sell it if

  1. they can get it
  2. it is pretty good
  3. somebody wants it

I noticed today that they have expanded the retail space in the store.  Some of the other tenants in the building have left, so maybe even further expansion is in order.  I thought they were just renting the building, but perhaps they are the owners and this was always the plan.

I only remark on this because it is nice to see a successful business rather than a failing one.  All too often businesses seem to come and go, never gaining a foothold.  I remember some local residents saying that they store wouldn’t be successful because there were few Asian people in the area.  While I knew that this was a little untrue, I also could see that things were changing in the neighbourhood.  I also could see that this store offered some good deals on some fresh produce.

This extra post for the day is just to celebrate something growing rather than closing.  Well done.

  1. I love Asian food and I’m not Asian so I would shop there. We are a diverse bunch after all, us Canadians. 😉

    They have the right business philosophy.

    That is very good news! And add me to the list of Non-Asians who love Asian food. Most of the ingredients I need to make a recipe (fish sauce for example) I have to order from Amazon because Walmart and our two small grocery stores don’t carry them. You can get 10 different kinds of teriyaki sauce but no fish sauce.

    It really is nice to see a business growing. So many are just shutting down left & right– some not even staying open for a whole year. I’m especially glad to see it’s an Asian market doing so well. 😁
