Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 18, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Store hours six full days, tivo nights Business Talk ___________ JIM MAYBIE "THE city's dosing bylaw i the hottest issue counci Das had to face since the ques don of the university site. Lobbying is just as activ and fierce. Council's decision eoul make or break Lethbridge. Nobody will be entirely sat isfied with what council de- cides. Some will be very dis satisfied. Any alderman wh expects to win a popularity contest, has no business sil ting on council. To procrastinate, and dump this bag of worms in the la; of a new council, would be a dastardly act. The issue now is a political football in the sarjdlot league but if counci doesn't take action soon, i could become a political foot ball in the major league. Mem bers of a new council coulc erroneously be elected solely on their stand on this emotion charged issue. There are many aspects to consider Hie indepen dent merchant, the chain stores staffs, the shopper, non retai businesses which would be af- fected and others too numer- ous to mention in this column. I would suggest council's only course of action is to allow stores to open six days a week until 6 p.m. with Thursday and Friday shopping until 9 p.m. To throw the bylaw out at this time would be as big a mistake as closing stores on Monday, as proposed by differ- ent factions. H you ask the shoppers, they would be happy with stores open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, as long as the product prices didn't increase. Enforced Monday closing would be Meal for employees who would nave two consecu- tive days a week off, time in which to regenerate one's bat- teries aad enjoy some of the activities which require more than one day. Monday dosing would also make business life more bear- able for the independent mer- chant with a small i.taff. But, it would be the most backward step Lethbridge could take businesswise. No other major shopping centre, except Regina, is known to have Monday dosing. Regma is having more than its share of problems with Monday clos- ing, and it won't be long be- fore stores will be allowed to open Mondays. With Monday closing there 1 a problem of shipping and re- ceiving goods. It could mean goods could not be shipped o received for perljaps three day a week. An extra day of wail ing by a customer general 1; means an extra day of frustra tion for that customer Business which normall: comes to Lethbridge on a Mon day, because some small com munities close shop Mondays would likely go to other centres Calgary abandoned its Mon day closing more than 15 year ago. It's hard to imagine tha Lethbridge is that far behind Calgary. If Lethbridge called for man- datory closing of stores Mon- days, I'd put my money where my mouth is that the bylaw would be repeatedly broken in short order, the whole fuss would resume and the bylaw would end up in the sanitary landfill. Put teeth in the by- law? Ha! That's been tried. What's in fines and le- gal fees to a major concern? There's no way major stores are going to stand for Monday closing. They want wide open hours. They want to stay open as long as economically feas- ible. They are in business to make money and if they feel it will pay to open longer, they will. That's free enterprise. What right does council real- ly have to legislate in which hours a firm may make its money? Doas it tell lawyers, doctors, dentists or babysitters when they may operate? This almost reason enough to throw the bylaw out entirely. But I think there is a moral and slight financial considers, ion council must give to look- ng after the independent, with- out whom this city would not be what it is today. The independent largely ceeps ttie money circulating in his community. Profits are not shipped off to head office. They are spent and invested here to a greater extent than the large chain store operation. But then, the large chain store provides greater employ- ment, and the payroll is large- y plowed back into the com- munity. Closing Mondays would have detrimental affect on em- ployment Take a look at the downtown area, supposedly the heart of the city. The city has a consid- erable investment in utilities and services. It is the high-tax area. If downtown businesses ail, so do the taxes and the dry's investment is not recov- ered from that source. Down- town becomes a blight instead f an asset. You say downtown merchants ave had the upper hand for ta many years, that the citi- zens have been hosed for too broken today. Perhaps these should not be included In the new bylaw and they should be left to work out their own schemes within the genera! terms of the bylaw. One tiling which should be included in the bylaw, however, is a section to allow the "cor- ner grocer" to provide his need- ed services legally into the la- ter hours of the evening. A square footage figure could be determined following a survey of existing stores, and used as a guide. HAY REAITY ITD.

Remember, they are the pio- neers who helped make LetV- bridge what it is today. If they all folded up, we would be at the mercy of the chains. We would lose valuable service, jobs and the economy would suffar greatly. We look after our senior citi- zens to a degree. So we must also look after our pioneer mer- chants to a degree. The extent to which we look after the independent is for council to decide. By retaining a dosing by- law, the independent merchant is assisted. By keeping Mon- days open, some of the onus is rightly put on them for their future. There is nothing in the bylaw to force a store to open on any day or ar any time. If the 170 independent mer- chants who petitioned for Mon- day closing get together, they can effectively close Mondays and give themselves and their staffs two consecutive days d rest. As a group, they might be able to survive if they dose Mondays. Undoubtedly, some of iheir business or anticipated In- crease in business will be trans- :erred to the stores open Mon- day, but they may survive as group. Some stores which have been dosed Mondays for years are doing well. I know of shoppers who find Friday night their most con- teniont night to shop. They used to shop downtown but they now go to where the stores are open. If an independent is open m the customer's m'ost conven- ent day, he will shop there, where there is personal ser- ioe, providing prices are in ine. If the independent isn't pen at the most convenient ime, the customer may be will- ing to forego the personal ser- ice and shop elsewhere. There now are special dos- ng regulations for motor car upply stations, second hand ealers, barber slibps, beauty parlors, nil of which arc being I didn't mention Wednesday afternoon closing, wliich is ar- chaic and ludicrous, and not worth talking about. Wednes- day afternoons must be open. Late night shopping two weeks prior to Christmas also seems to have general agreement al- though the cumber of days may be debated. The most equitable and work- able solution, I feel, would be six full days of shopping with two late nighfs. Monday dos- ing would set Lethbridge back 15 years. To throw the bylaw out at this time would be like throwing our pioneers to the wolves.

The only strong sector on markets was gold-mining stocks, which tend to rise in times of economic uncertainty. Throughout the week, many Investors appeared cautious about buying until more was known about what will happen after the wage-price freeze ex- pires in the U.S. The freeze is due to expire in mid-November. U.S. President Hichard Nixon said late Thursday the freeze will be followed by firm re- straints.

At Toronto, the Industrial index, regarded as an important indicator of market activity, dropped .25 of a point on the week to 178.24. The exchange's index of gold- mining issues rose 1.13 points to 89.29. At New York, the Dow Jones index of key blue chip industrial issues lost 2.88 points on the week, dropping to 908.22. INDEX DROPS The Montreal and Canadian exdianges' composite index dropped .21 of a point to 183.09. Caution among investors was reflected in trading volume dur- ing the week. The Toronto exchange's aver- age daily volume was 2.08 mil- lion shares, down from 2.18 mil- lion last week. Western oil issues, which for several weecs have been ad- vancing because of increased buying by U.S. investors of shares of Canadian resource concerns, and also because of exemption of raw materials from the U.S. additional import duty, slipped back this week. The Toronto exchange's index of these stocks dropped 2.46 points to 238.07. Anatysts said the drop was due in part to profit-taking. Base metal Issues lost 1.13 points to 89.29 on the Toronto index. THE CITY OF LETHBRIDGE REQUIRES A DIRECTOR FOR A SENIOR POSITION WHO IS A GRADUATE CIVIL ENGINEER WITH BROAD EXPERIENCE IN MUNICIPAL WORKS Salory about For further information write the PERSONNEL OFFICER, CITY HALL, LETHBRIDGE, ALBERTA University of Alberta enrolls fewer EDMONTON (CP) The University of Alberta will ap- parently have about few- er students than anticipated this year, president Dr. Max Wyman said here. The university had expected students for the 1971-72 academic year but registra- tions so far Indicate that there will be about students, be said in an interview. There were full-time students registered as of last Friday compared with at the same time last year. Final registration las tyear was 337. Dr. Wyman said the lower en- rolment will probably mean a loss of about in rev- enue for the university from the provincial government. He said, however, that this is not a serious situation.
