Entrepreneur alert!  Are you or someone you know looking to start up a business in Moose Jaw?  If so, I'd direct you to the Facebook page called MJ Talks.  It is there where a local resident posted this:  "In your opinion, what businesses does this city need?"

The response?  I'd say it's overwhelming.  Dozens of locals weighed in on this one with suggestions ranging from craft and home decor stores to 24 hour grocery and pharmacy.

The new restaurant suggestions include Wendy's, Earl's, Harvey's, Five Guys, IHOP and Joey Tomatoes.

A number of locals would like book stores like Chapters, Coles and McNally Robinson and many discussed clothing for women and men.  A number of people would like to see Winners return to Moose Jaw.

I can't disagree with many of the suggestions - most of them are good but I do agree with those who say we need a men's clothing store and I wonder how many local people make regular trips to Regina just to go to Costco.  I'll bet they'd shop here at home if we had one of those stores.
