SURVEY: Why Canadians visit Burlington

first_imgChurch Street Marketplace RESEARCH REPORT: Intercept Interviews of French-Speaking Quebec visitorsLabor Day Weekend, 2008 (Friday, September 1 through Monday, September 4, 2008)Introduction: The Greater Montréal, Quebec Market: More than three and one-half million people live just two hours north of Burlington, Vermont. Montréal is Quebec’s largest city and Canada’s second largest next to Toronto. The 2007 Canadian Census (Statistics Canada, Population of census metropolitan areas), reported 1.6 million people residing in the city of Montréal proper. More than 3.6 million live in the Montréal Census Metropolitan Area (Greater Montréal Area). French is the language spoken by 70.5% of the population (as of the 2006 census). Montréal is the largest French-speaking city in North America; second in the world after Paris. (STATCAN)Understanding French-speaking Quebecois: French-speaking Quebecois’ consumer behavior reflects continental French lifestyles in many ways. In general, French-speaking Quebecois spend relatively more money on food for home consumption, clothing, personal care and health items, tobacco, and alcoholic beverages (versus other Canadians).Why do Quebecois visit and shop in Burlington? Taxes and variety. In Quebec, two taxes are applicable on goods and services: the GST (5% Goods and Services Tax) and the PST (7.9 5% Provincial Sales Tax). Whenever the Canadian dollar moves close to parity with our dollar, American goods (minus a GST and PST) offer Canadians a better value. The size of the US market also plays a part in Quebec’s attraction to Vermont and the U.S., as our national stores, in particular, can offer a greater variety and depth of products.French-speaking Quebecois on Church Street: French-speaking Quebecois have always frequented Burlington’s Church Street Marketplace. But cross-border shopping by all Canadians, according to Statistics Canada, began increasing “significantly” in the last half of 2007 as Canada’s dollar reached parity with the U.S. dollar. Businesses on the Church Street Marketplace witnessed a dramatic increase in Quebec shoppers and diners throughout the summer of 2008.Intercept Interviews with French-speaking Quebecers over Labor Day Weekend, 2008: The Church Street Marketplace conducted 80 intercept interviews of Quebec visitors on its Mall block, between Bank and Cherry Streets during Labor Day Weekend, 2008 – Friday, September 1 through Monday, September 4. Here are the results (Source Questions 1 & 2 below):QUESTION # 3 What is the purpose of your visit? Tourism and shopping were the two largest responses gathered. Many people said they came to Burlington for the day to shop, dine and explore.Airport (1)Ambience (1)Boating (1)Camping (4)Dining (3)Events: Burlington Criterium/Bicycle Race (2)Go to beach (1)Hockey tournament (1)Concert: @ Fairgrounds (1)On Motorcycle Tour (1)Outdoor Sports (2)Shopping (15)Tourism (52)Visit with Family, Friends (7)Wedding, relatives, etc. (1)QUESTION # 4.What specific purchases did you make? French-speaking Quebecois visiting September 1-4 were either brand conscious, coming to the Street to purchase specific clothing brands not available in Canada, or price conscious, seeking out lower prices and bargains.Abercrombie (4)Advertise pizza restaurantsAeropostale (2)Ann TaylorArt suppliesBanana Republic (3)Bargains (4)Barnes & NobleBCBG OutletBen & Jerry’sBirkenstockBooksBooks, Gardener’s supplyBordersCappucino, boating suppliesCheddar CheeseChicoClothes (7)Electronics storesEMSFoodFood at Farmer’s MarketFoot LockerGood prices (4)Groceries (2)Hardware ACEHollister (2)HurleyJ.

Following are comments from those individuals surveyed. While those surveyed often responded about a number topics, individual responses have been separated out and categorized to identify trends and priorities.a. WAYFINDING SIGNAGE / INFORMATION / INFO IN FRENCH: This category elicited the most responses. Respondents suggested more wayfinding signage, particularly getting to and around the downtown. Signage in French was viewed as recognition of and appreciation for French-speaking Quebecois in the downtown. Requests for regional information on Church Street (hiking, biking, recreation) were also identified.* Better sign for University Suites; run down hotel.* City is bicycle friendly* Maps of bike routes* Need bike path info* More educational signs about town* Improve signage to tell people how to get to Marketplace. Put in French* Information about North Beach on Church Street* Hiking info on Church Street* More French signs on Church Street* Put in cross reference maps in the parking garages so that visitors can find stores and services by category.* Need Walking tours* More signs in French; sales people who speak French* Make area map more user-friendly.b. PARKING & TRANSPORTATION* More garage parking so we don’t have to feed the meter* More parking; clearer direction markings in garages; cross reference maps on street corners so visitors can find stores by category.* Better & less expensive parking* No direct flights from Toronto to Burlington; would like info on busses between Burlington and Montréal ; Burlington & Toronto; Seems to be no coordination between trains, buses, etc.; Need an info clearing house for ground transportation.* Parking for motorhomes close to ferry. Forced to park in Williston; a lot of confusion with recreational vehicles, lost market.* shuttle bus from Colchester to Church Street* parking is well organized; shuttle buses are a help.* Border crossing long; like it here, safe and close by; like the ferry crossingc. RETAIL: Respondents who came to shop were looking for trendy, national brands, good prices and later store hours. Because each retail store on Church Street sets its own business hours, the Street as a whole does not offer the customer uniform hours.)* More chain stores* Stores close too early for Montréalers, even on Saturday* Prices are higher than expected; would like to see lower prices* Tax discount provided in store for being Canadian; 11% at Macy’s who files for tax refund later with Canada* More stores for clothing; more trendy brandsd. ACCOMMODATIONS: Comments received focused on the need for more hotel rooms with lower prices.* Motels expensive and dirty* Need more hotel rooms;* Hotels; too expensive* Would like lower hotel costs; like that you are doing surveye. DINING* More seafood restaurants; not expensive at water’s edge* Need restaurant recommendations* Put in a fried dough stand* Website confusing for Burlington; prices not posted for hotels; map of Burlington on website.* Need Menus in French* Heat Breakwaters for a longer season with outdoor heaters.f. EXCHANGE RATE: For those Labor Day respondents who identified the exchange rate as important, they asked for greater acceptance of the Canadian dollar by Church Street merchants.* Some felt we should accept the Canadian dollar at par;* Many felt that all stores should accept Canadian dollars and calculate the exchange rate as necessary.* Some were quite offended that that was not the case.* Increase acceptance/recognition of Canadian dollar;Many merchants we’ve spoken to after this survey said accepting Canadian at par is problematic; they’re not willing to absorb any losses. This may be due in part to contracting profit margins.g. PUBLIC RESTROOMS* Need more public restrooms, better marked locations* Need street corner rest roomsh. SAFETY: Safe and Non-Threatening. Those who participated in focus groups in Boston and Montreal, as part of the 2007 Burlington Branding Study, described Burlington as safe, non-threatening, and manageable: almost like ‘a city outside America’ and ‘more Canadian’ than even Americanized Toronto.i. PARKS* Need a Downtown playground for children to use while parents shop.* Love the dog parkGENERAL COMMENTS from the Labor Day, 2008 Interviews:* Don’t change. Love the small town feel compared to Montréal. Rural areas are so close by. Love how authentic you are (4 responses compressed, combined)* Need a room-finder service for hotels.* Need Information for vacationing in this country;* Need more Canadian flags displayed as well as discounts, free stuff, Quebec music, teen stuff, giveaways.* Great visit* Happy (21 similar responses)* Good prices* Like the happy, polite sales staff* Just got here. Like the ambience. The “un-Montréal .”* Keep it like it is; Like it fine as is; Like it here; quiet like the beach* Love farmer’s market; friendly, open attitude.* Love the friendly atmosphere of the street; Love the opportunity to sit outside in a clean, safe, fun environment. Street entertainers are excellent; Love the pedestrian mall and all the street vendors* No changes. Like how friendly and informal it is compared to Montréal* Regular visitors once a year* Very happy, love the bilingual signs as a gesture of friendshipTo assist our primary audience- business owners and managers on Church Street who are selling to our Quebec visitors – this report includes excerpts from the 2007 branding study, conducted by Charism Advisors for the Lake Champlain Regional Chamber of Commerce. These findings both validate the Labor Day survey and provide guidance on marketing to French-speaking Quebecers.* Montréalers want to think of Burlington as different: a border crossing to a ‘whole new world.’ For Montréalers: Burlington is a world away, but very accessible. It is the architecture, signage, landscape (“It’s massive,” green, clean, open, wide angle), food, and customs. Burlington is about great shopping. Stores they can’t get in Montréal (Victoria’s Secret) and “great deals.” It can be a stopping off point en route to Southern New England or destination in itself.* Burlington as a Get Away: According to the Branding Study, Montréalers think of Burlington as a “get away” — a place that allows urbanites to escape to the country and to town. Burlington offers escape and relaxation, even while enjoying it’s more urban-like dimensions (food, art, design, music, relative sophistication).* Escape, not Retreat: Quaint and charming came up frequently in focus groups, particularly in reference to Church Street, Inns, and residential architecture. A Montréaler in a focus group said, “It really looks like that!” There is a fantasy, picture-postcard aspect Burlington. It is an escape, but not a retreat. This differentiates Burlington from smaller more rural destinations.* Authenticity: People coming to Burlington are searching for a simpler, cleaner, greener, slower place that is also living, real, contemporaneous, and vital.* Acceptance: Chill not Frosty: Montreal and Boston focus groups described Burlington as welcoming, non-judgmental, supportive, and collaborative. As one Montréaler said, people are chill (vs. “frosty”), and mind their own business. But, when you talk to them or ask for help they are very nice. Being respectfully distant while collaborative, supportive, and accepting of all opinions and lifestyles, creates a very positive climate for our visitors, according to the study.SOURCE QUESTIONS:1.

He started at shortstop in place of Tim Anderson, who began the day leading the AL in batting average but had a planned day off.Yolmer Sánchez had an RBI single in the sixth and Ryan Cordell added a sacrifice fly in the seventh to extend the White Sox lead.Josh Osich (2-0) threw 2 2/3 scoreless innings to pick up the victory.

Shohei Ohtani singled to drive in the Angels’ run in the first. He is 12 for 28 with nine RBIs in seven games against the White Sox this season. He went 1 for 4 with three strikeouts after going 3 for 5 with a career-high five RBIs on Saturday.McCann’s RBI single tied it 1-1 in the bottom of the first. Opener Noé Ramirez recorded just two outs.The Angels left the bases loaded in the first and second innings. Kevan Smith struck out to end the first before Ohtani struck out and Albert Pujols hit a fly ball to conclude the second.Dylan Cease allowed a run and struck out four but walked five and threw 88 pitches in 3 1/3 innings for the White Sox, who had lost nine of 11.TRAINER’S ROOMAngels: OF Justin Upton (calf tightness) was held out of the lineup due to the rainy conditions. … INF Tommy La Stella (broken right tibia) has soreness in his leg, Ausmus said.

Miller: Dodgers and Astros go back and forth to give us a series

first_imgLOS ANGELES — OK, so now, 10 games into their postseason run, the Dodgers are in a series, a real series.Their first season. The last series.The World Series.Hey, when you’re playing for the championship of the globe – even if the only teams eligible to participate are in the U.S. and Canada – it can’t be as easy as winning a beer-league softball title, right? They lost despite having the ball and game in the hand of Kenley Jansen, who had allowed only one unearned run in this postseason and no earned runs in more than a month.“I’m human,” Jansen said later. “I can’t do anything about it now. Today was their day.”The Dodgers lost, all right, when George Springer hit a two-run homer off Brandon McCarthy in the 11th inning, after they had come back in the manner of a miracle to stretch the game beyond 10 innings.See, the Astros sort of won this game twice, which the Dodgers made a necessity by refusing to go quietly.That was fitting, given everything that happened over the four hours, 19 minutes it took to resolve this thing. The score was tied at 1-1, 3-3 and 5-5. Both teams led by two runs at least once. Starting in the ninth inning, there were a combined six home runs hit.“That was definitely one of the best games I’ve been a part of,” the Dodgers Charlie Culberson said. “A great ballgame. Unfortunately, we lost.”Leading 3-2 entering the bottom of the ninth, the Culberson and his teammates watched in likely amazement as the Astros tied the score on a Marwin Gonzalez homer off Jansen.Then, in the 10th, Houston took the lead on back-to-back home runs by Jose Altuve and Carlos Correa off Josh Fields.To understand how shockingly and suddenly the mood shifted at Dodger Stadium, consider that after Correa’s homer the boos raining down on the Dodgers were nearly as epic as anything this team has done lately.Yeah, a classic fall in the Fall Classic.But the Dodgers, of course, weren’t done, and, despite this loss, it’s still hard to imagine this team being done until it has accomplished its goal.Now trailing 5-3, the Dodgers pulled even on a Puig homer – a drive as brilliant as the blue streak he has painted in his hair for this series – and a two-out RBI single by Kiké Hernandez.That comeback, however, only made what happened against McCarthy all the more difficult to take and made Culberson’s 11th-inning homer all the more frustrating, that tying seventh run still eluding the Dodgers.So now, after cruising to victories in eight of its first nine postseason games, this team finds themselves even with the talented and grinding Astros at a game apiece. In other words, the Dodgers find themselves in a series.“Nobody said it would be easy,” Culberson said. “We’re here to fight.”This is a series, certainly, the American League champions looking decidedly more threatening than what the rest of the National League could throw at the Dodgers.And all this soured just as dramatically as the Dodgers had earlier turned Game 2 in their unlikely favor.They actually provided the night’s initial twist when Corey Seager sent Dodger Stadium into orbit, nearly 55,000 fans – minus several hundred in Astros orange – launching from their seats and into the steamy night air, steamy yet still not warm enough to prevent chills.Seager, having just dominated a 97-mph fastball from a dominating Verlander, let out his own exhaust as he watched his game-altering two-run homer in the sixth streak toward the stands.He screamed. Really, he unleashed a guttural, primal, opened-mouth growl caught by cameras in spectacular slow motion.It was the highest of drama in the highest of def, coming from a player hardly known for his bursts of overwhelming emotion.That shot gave the Dodgers a sudden 3-1 lead on a night when Verlander was unhittable into the fifth inning and sustaining his velocity like he hadn’t – according to an ESPN report – since 2011.The home run also fit the script of what the Dodgers had been doing all postseason, coming up with big moments in the biggest moments.In their first nine postseason games entering Tuesday, the Dodgers had trailed at the end of only 13 of 81 innings, and eight of those came in their Game 4 loss to the Cubs in the National League Championship Series.In other words, the Dodgers had been ahead or tied 84 percent of the time, which brought with it a certain degree of comfort.Thanks to the Astros, all that changed in Game 2.Yeah, the theater was remarkable, from opening pitch to closing swing. In fact, the theater began even earlier than that.It started with an elaborate first-pitch ceremony that involved Vin Scully faking a rotator cuff injury and having to give way to Fernando Valenzuela, who tossed the ball to Steve Yeager.It was a bit much maybe, perhaps a tad over-the-top even. But this is L.A., and over-the-top is what we do sometimes, OK?The 11 crazy, wonderful, flustering innings that followed the opening ceremonies Tuesday proved that. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorcenter_img And there was nothing easy about this one for the Dodgers or their fans, this 7-6, bullpen-imploding, last-call, extra-large, extra-inning loss to the Astros in Game 2 of the World Series.“If you thought it was going to go 4-0, you’re crazy,” outfielder Yasiel Puig said through an interpreter. “These are the two best teams in American baseball. That’s what you get.”The Dodgers lost despite taking a lead into the ninth, something they hadn’t done on 98 previous such occasions this season.They lost despite getting ahead after struggling against Houston’s best pitcher, the fume-throwing Justin Verlander.last_img read more
