PETERS – Minos’ proclamation drew a line in the sand — and most customers are on the other side

IT GOES WITHOUT SAYING that the life of a restaurant owner is not a lot of laughs right now — but for anyone who owns a Kamloops Greek restaurant not named Minos, life just got a little better.

You are secure in the knowledge your competitor has just alienated a very large portion of their possible customer base by stating publicly their desire to disregard the public health order prohibiting indoor dining.

Minos drew a line in the sand this week by stating it will open its indoor dining room on May 25 regardless of the rules in place.

In a social media post, the restaurant’s owner said they were at the point of either opening for indoor dining or packing up and moving to Greece.

The post was deleted when it started getting media attention.

On one side of that line in the sand will be a few customers who similarly don’t have the patience to abide by any more restrictions.

    , and other hardships…..real ones.
