We know something will be developed at the former Pearls location downtown but we don’t know what.

Rod Bilz is president of Remedy Developments Inc. which owns the property now.

Instead of announcing what will happen there Bilz says they’re taking suggestions from the community on what people would like to see.

He says they want to have something that’s a good fit for the downtown and they’ve already received many suggestions.

“Things like a re-filling location where people could bring n their own container for shampoo and cleaning products. There’s been talk about a bakery co-op and a deli counter,” he says.

He says there will be a community brainstorming session next Thursday night at 6:30 with an announcement on what will go in the location next month.

As well, Bilz says they will refurbish the upstairs and put in an apartment.
