Time for another poll question!

I'm changing the Grand Forks Life poll again. You can click here to view the results from the previous poll question ("What would you most like to see attached to the new Canad Inns hotel/waterpark complex?"). A cinema topped the poll as the most wished for attraction at 41%. An outlet mall received 29% of the vote and a museum got 21%. A wellness center got just 3% of the total. The "Other" option stands at 6%. I'm not suprised to see that a cinema was the most desired attraction. This is the component that we were first introduced to when Canad Inns made their initial proposal some time back. There has been some question as to whether Canad Inns may seek another attraction to replace the cinema component, but I have heard that Canad is still in negotiations with at least one cinema company. Guess we'll have to wait and see.

The new question is "Which grocery store in Grand Forks will suffer the most from the Wal-Mart SuperCenter?". Happy voting!

I voted for Super One. Im not even sure how they're doing for business wise at the moment. We all know Grand Forks will support Hugo's still, so that shouldn't be hurt at all. Super Target should be ok and Super Wal-Mart should do fine as well. Super One will get hurt bad in my opinion.

Super one... for two reasons: They are closely located, and they seem to share somewhat similar clientele.

Hmm, I don't know.

I voted Hugos, here's why:

SuperTarget: Target has a slightly nicer clientele, and some people are put off by the atmosphere in Wal Mart that they don't feel comfortable shopping there even if to save a few $

Amazing Grains: Completely seperate clientele

Leevers: 24 hour grocery store. I supose SuperWalMart might be that way too, but Leevers is smaller, and when you park there you park really close to the doors.. it's a more intimate feeling, plus the store is really close to many neighborhoods and superwalmart is further away

Super One: Super One has an AWESOME "south of the border" section. They even sell tortilla presses. I feel that because they have a bigger hispanic? (I don't know which word is the right word to refer to everything south?) section, they must have a loyal clientele that cooks that type of food, and I don't imagine super wal mart is going to carry so many products. Also, I don't know, I guess I just feel like the physical location isn't sucha big deal

Hugos: last choice left.
