Encouraging news this morning on the Ogden City economic development front, as the Standard announces the arrival of a new player for the Ogden Riverfront Project. Here's the lead:
OGDEN — While Ogden city continues to promote itself as a world- class outdoor-recreation destination, owners of a new retail store near downtown hope to ride that wave.Check out the full Mitch Shaw writeup here:
GEAR:30, a premier mountain equipment shop, is now open at 1931 S. Washington Blvd., positioned as one of the centerpieces in the Ogden Riverbend project, right between Kneaders Bakery & Cafe, Slackwater Pub & Pizzeria and the Bingham Cyclery.
Looks like this new operation will fill a heretofore un-filled retail marketing niche, we'll cautiously observe; and it would appear that this new outfit won't step on any other existing busuness's toes, thank goodness.
Conspicuously absent from this morning's story, of course, is any information concerning any Ogden taxpayer subsidies or other financial inducements which might have been responsible for luring in this new business, an issue which, taking into account Ogden City's track record, we do believe S-E reporter Shaw ought to have fully explored.
