After all, we have many employers in the area who work 24/7.
I worked in the construction field for 35 years and there’s been many occasions I needed to get groceries after hours due to working a night shift or afternoon, and getting off work at midnight or past 2 a.m.
You can’t buy groceries, because all the stores are closed. Sure, you can stop in at a corner store, but I don’t want to pay $10 for a 12-pack of water.
After getting a call at 10 p.m. on a Friday, I have been sent out of town to work at a minute’s notice and couldn’t get groceries for my kids for the week because the stores are all closed.
I think it’s time to get with the program, City of Greater Sudbury. Not everyone works a 9-5 job.
We keep saying we have a lack of employment, but yet what about those jobs you could create by allowing stores to set their own hours?
I’m sure someone would work night shift. Actually, I know people that prefer night shift.
North Bay has one. Timmins has one. Why not the City of Greater Sudbury?
