I havent blogged in what seems like forever so I thought I would join in with the fun of today’s Friday Five! A little something to brighten my reader’s day. Besides that Im not feeling the greatest today….think I caught the flu bug! Its miserable…chills, fever (currently at 100) and the works! ICKY!!!
These Friday Five questions courtesy of Friday 5:
If you suddenly received a ton of money and could open up some kind of store or service just for the pleasure of having it (assume it wouldn’t have to be too financially successful!), what would it be? Ive always wanted to have my own publishing company!
What service or store that no longer exists do you miss most? Hmmm thats a hard one. I would have to say the Quiznos that closed near my apartment!
What local business do you think you could make better if you were to take it over? Thats a hard one..Walmart I guess if I had to say something.
And if you don’t mind sharing, what changes would you make? I would not make their employees work on Thanksgiving, and would try to get it back to Sam Waltons original view for it.
What spot nearby seems to be impossible for businesses to survive in? Downtown Fargo is awesome and has awesome shops. But it doesnt have the best parking so if there was more and better parking, I think more businesses could survive there.
We’ve all seen stores that combined books and records, beer and laundry, or coffee and whatever. One of my favorite places to get coffee in Honolulu is a cafe and florist, and there is a car garage that’s also a diner in a town nearby. What would be a cool hybrid of two disparate ideas for somewhere you’d like to hang out? Hmmm this is a fun one. It reminds me of an idea some friends had at seminary. They were going to create a pasta/spaghetti restaurant and then have the top be there apartment or a bookstore or something if I remember right. I love the idea of a bookstore and a restaurant together!!!
