Sheret decision cuts off nose to spite face

Re: Andrew Sheret rezoning It is surprising the neighbours did not support the rezoning to allow for storage.

I would have thought that these neighbours would have supported Andrew Sheret as an “anchor store” – driving business to the smaller retailers in the area.

At least that was the case for me. The new location and improved inventory has diverted my shopping habits away from the Nanaimo Andrew Sheret to the Duncan location.

Often, I will combine business and personal shopping together to manage my time efficiently. A trip to the Duncan Andrew

Sheret may involve a stop for pet food, garden, supplies, meat or produce – all available in the vicinity. I have even perused the car lot adjacent (which has fenced in inventory).

I imagine contractors in Chemainus, Crofton, and Saltspring shop the same way. I can’t help but think this is a “cutting off the nose to spite the face scenario.
