Ryan Bushnell started this petition to Fort Bragg City Council

Please sign the petition:

We care deeply about the future of our City and the folks who live here. That is why we support reasonable growth in Fort Bragg. While we support local businesses we also support allowing other businesses to come into Fort Bragg for those who otherwise shop online or travel over the hill for more affordable shopping.
It makes no sense to be labeled an “economically depressed City” and not have affordable shopping for those who are hurting financially and barely making ends meet. In a City where so many depend on the Food Bank and Thrift Shops: shouldn’t there be more shopping options?
The proposed Grocery Outlet will not hurt our existing businesses, like Harvest Market, Colombi’s Nellos and Purity. These are the “go to places” for many and that won’t change.
What Grocery Outlet and even Dollar General will do is: make it possible for local folks to shop at home instead of traveling over the hill or shopping online.
The argument that 851 South Franklin is a bad location for the Grocery Outlet because so many will be traveling there to shop is proof in itself that it is needed. Why would so many shop there otherwise?
In their own words “hundreds of cars going in and out of this grocery store at this busy intersection, each and every day.” It is possible the folks in those cars may be the ones who would have been traveling over the hill or shopping online. It makes very little sense to oppose a business because it will be busy.
Much of the traffic in and around Fort Bragg are tourists. Does it make sense to tell locals because there are so many tourists in town, our community should keep businesses out that may help the many in our community who otherwise can’t afford to shop locally?
WE SUPPORT reasonable growth. WE SUPPORT Grocery Outlet and WE SUPPORT the location at 851 South Franklin Street.

Thank you for signing this petition and for supporting the community who live and work here.
