Huge benefits to The Landing



It has been said that business in The Landing is “good enough” and so extra business generated by The George centre would be unnecessary. Clearly those who believe this are not business owners.

Their claiming to know what level of business is “good enough” on our behalf is perplexing and presumptuous. Their implied characterization of our businesses as strictly self-serving is inaccurate and extremely unfair. What these people fail to credit is that the businesses of The Landing are incredibly active in our community, and the health of those businesses directly relates to their ability to make those contributions. So, even if business in The Landing is “good enough,” that only means that the contributions we are able to make also remain “good enough,” falling short of the level of support we believe that the community deserves.

The current support efforts of The Landing include donations to every silent auction and fundraiser who asks (sometimes multiple requests daily), the recent Food, Fashion, FUN evening at the Sunshine Coast Golf and Country Club (all proceeds were donated to St. Mary’s Hospital Auxiliary), the Giving Back campaign (filling six vans with warm clothing and bedding all donated to those in need), and many others.

At The Landing, giving back to the community is high priority, and the additional business that will come from The George will only give us more means to support the community.

That being said it must also be recognized that money spent in the community cycle through the local economy several times through wages and purchases of goods and services. More business means more money to feed the local economy.

Will the businesses of The Landing benefit from The George? Absolutely. But so, too, will the entire community.
