Group attracting retailers to Bathurst asks council for liaison

A group that approaches retailers in an effort to get them to set up shop in Bathurst is asking council to provide it with a liaison.

"We Want a Costco in Bathurst" group's Wendy Aubie says the liaison would help promote the area when companies come  for exploratory visits.

The group worked to attract the Giant Tiger store that's expected to open this summer.

Mayor Paolo Fongemie says the request will be taken into consideration.
