Podunkian Business Tracker

Well we've meant to do this for the last few years for the blog, but it always seems to have slipped through the cracks of our intentions, a list of businesses in town that open or close this year.

So with the year still relatively new, we'll endeavour to get things back on track.

Below we'll list those new ventures that launch in Podunk this year and commemorate those that fall by the wayside. Since we're being told that things are on the upswing these days, we suspect that the green "new" entries will outpace the red "closed" ones, but as with anything time will tell.

If you may notice a new business start up or see the dreaded brown paper show up in a window overnight, drop us a line at so we can try to keep up to pace. Items will be listed as we come across them, not particularly on the date that they may open or close. Hopefully, we'll be at least in the ball park within a month or so of the situation.

While our first entry actually closed in late December, we'll start off the list with it, just for the sake of having something to put down to kick things off. It all might make for an interesting report card by the time the municipal election rolls around in November..
