New Madville Times poll! What sort of retail store does Madison need most? I've listed a few possibilities in the left sidebar: mark your choice, or click "Other" and leave your recommendation and rationale here in the comment section!
Now I know some folks might say, "Forget retail—let's draw a big factory or [Rod's favorite] call center and get some jobs!" That point is well-taken, and we'll cover getting people jobs so they can buy from more retailers later.
But for now, let's focus on the consumer side: what's Madison need? Lake County neighbors, what are you driving to Sioux Falls to buy that some entrepreneur could make a living selling here? And more distant neighbors (Steve, Travis, Kyle, et al.), what legal merchandise could we sell here that would get you to gas up the truck and come to Madison?
Why am I asking? Well, someone's got to do some market research around here. Maybe the LAIC is doing it... the difference is, I won't charge you for the results. (Donations are, of course, always welcome—hit that tip jar below the poll!)
Poll closes Tuesday, Jan. 19, breakfast time. Vote now, and stay tuned!
