Rough Start For Food Providers

Cobourg’s flooded beach is likely responsible for diminished crowds at the waterfront. Despite this weekend’s Highland Games, there was only limited activity at the beach. Northumberland 89.7 spoke with the food concession providers, Lucas and Montana, owners of the Market and S’mor and asked if diminished weekend turnouts are frustrating them in making a profit. They remain stoic and look to better weather and better turnouts in the coming weeks. However, they advised that Cobourg will not see them opening their specialty market on King Street this fall. They stated that even though they signed a lease, provided the Landlord with a deposit cheque and are in possession of the keys, the Landlord reneged and wants to renegotiate. Rather than spending expected profits on lawyer’s fees to defend their lease, the husband and wife team have decided to walk away. They suggested there is still a possibility leased space may be found in Port Hope.
