Glad you are here Mr. Burns!
#PokemonGo is sweeping the nation. You cannot turn a corner without seeing someone looking for one of the little monsters! But, while you or your little tykes are searching for Pokemon or need to refill at a Pokestop, you can also serve your more human needs by grabbing a coffee and biscotti, ice cream, pizza or any other number of refreshments in Dennis Port Village Center. Not looking for food while on your Pokemon adventure? Visit anyone of the other village’s fine merchants while waiting for Pikachu to appear.
Seriously, the Pokemon craze has the ability to bring people to our downtown public places. Embracing PokemonGO can be good for our local economy.
Cape Cod Times
“Deb Martin, CEO of ERA Cape Real Estate in Dennis and Yarmouth, said the market for second homes and investment properties is especially strong. “Many companies have had a banner year so far,” she said. “For my company alone, it’s been about a 40 percent increase in sales.””
Good for the property owner looking to sell, not so good for the worker looking for housing to own based upon Cape Cod wages.
Just wondering, is it time to rethink the uses in Dennis Port and West Dennis? Maybe look to bring some tech sector or back office jobs into the empty storefront by Job Lot. It could mean more customers for the retail space in the two villages. Thoughts?
I saw a similar article a while back, that I posted, of a community in Massachusetts that had a similar program for vacant commercial buildings.
