Current Score – Poll #1

We have been overwhelmed so far by the response from neighbours, community and media.

“What type of business do you think belongs at 243 Union Street?” Restaurant is leading the choices at 41%, with Local Service close behind at 33%.

Note: many of the “Other” responses actually fit into the three categories. For example, we consider “grocery” and “art gallery” to be “Local Service”, “wine bar” to be “Restaurant”, and pop-up retail store to be “Retail”.

Remember, Poll #1 is just the beginning. Once you’ve decided on “Restaurant”, “Retail” or “Local Service”, we hope you’ll be ready to vote on the NEXT question.

In the meantime, we need to hear from more people on Poll #1. Vote now!

    I vote for a cafe like Finch’s that is open at night for takeout food after work and brunch on the weekends. A deli like dirty apron would be awesome too with specialty cheeses and craft beers that you can take home in a growler. This place in Brooklyn is amazing and work great here in strathcona.

    A sandwich or light mean shop would be great, something open late. Most shops in the area close quite early, so if you’re coming home after 6 or 7 there aren’t many options. A bagel place would be great, but the space is very small and bakeries take up a good amount of room. Maybe a sandwich shop that also has a few groceries, kind of deli style with a cooler full or salads and sides. I think a simple sandwich shop that uses high quality ingredients to make simple and filling meals would be best, perhaps serving good drip coffee as well.
