Moving my business to a [struggling?] manufacturing based economy from a booming resource based economy is something that makes me nervous.
The doom and gloom about the economy in the London area that I hear in the news and on this forum also makes me worry a bit.
Oh, Woodstock is doing fine. They have the Toyota plant (which employs about 15% of the town, one of the greatest gifts Canada ever received for its birthday) and a whole bunch of other small-scale manufacturing operations. There's no big money there, but it's a solid middle-class town. Quite a few rental units as well, so you should find business for the carpet-cleaning component.
London, on the other hand, is a chronically (but not terminally) sick city. St. Thomas is on life support.
