Support local biz

Residents should support local businesses like Orr’s Butcher

I would like to comment on the significant loss to our community by the closing of Orr’s Butcher in Brentwood Bay after 34 years of service.

The business was started in 1979 and had an excellent reputation for the quality of its meat.

Unfortunately, as times change, people and families are buying their meat from big box stores to save money and time.

I think we need to make a more of an effort to support local businesses, otherwise the big “for lease” signs will be more common in the windows of our village.
