Golden Ticket Rentals says town action unfair
By Samatha Gardiner/The Telegram
It takes perseverance and hard work for a small business to thrive, but it also helps if you’re not in competition with your municipality. Kaywood Elliott, owner of Golden Ticket Rentals in Grand Falls-Windsor, seems to be in that position. He rents out inflatables like obstacle courses and bouncy castles as well as wedding tents and other items. He has been operating his business in Grand Falls-Windsor, N.L., for nine years and has been renting his equipment to the town for events like Grand Falls Day, Canada Day and the Salmon Festival activities.
Just recently, the town decided to purchase its own bouncy castle for events, meaning it would no longer require the services of the local small business.
