ZUIDHORN – Binnenvallen bij de Algemene Ledenvergadering van Zakenkring Zuidhorn klinkt als een goed idee. En dat was het ook, zo bleek woensdag op een mooie koude winteravond. Zeker in de schitterende horecagelegenheid In’t Holt 1654 van Ton en Bernadette. Dat je in theaterzalen meer kan dan alleen kijken naar de mooiste toneeluitvoeringen bleek deze avond wel. Al is de gemakkelijk sprekende Jan Oomkes, die als voorzitter van de Zakenkring het hoogste woord voerde, natuurlijk een lopende theatervoorstelling op zich. Wanneer Oomkes spreekt is het nooit saai. Zeker niet als hij spreekt over het Roden “waar men de afgelopen tien jaar het centrum heeft verknoeid”. De aanwezige leden, waaronder onder meer René Stegenga en voormalig bestuurslid Roland Turksema, kregen te horen dat er afgelopen jaar veel is bereikt in Zuidhorn. “Vlaggenmasten, kunstbanken, modeshows en mooie feesten in het centrum”, somde Oomkes op. Toch kan het nog altijd beter, waren de ondernemers eensgezind. Zo wil men zich richten op parkeervoorzieningen zonder blauwe kaart en moet in 2018 ook invulling worden gegeven aan de plannen om Zuidhorn ‘kleurrijk’ te maken. In de letterlijke zin van het woord, zo hoorde de ongenode gast aan. Goede voorbeelden zijn daarbij meer dan welkom, moet voorzitter Jan Oomkes hebben gedacht toen hij als mystery guest en spreker Dick Foorthuis uitnodigde. Foorthuis was voorzitter van de Handelsvereniging Klazienaveen in de tijd dat Klazienaveen als koopdorp alle records verbrak en waar de omzet -tegen de Drentse tendens in- bleef groeien. Het geheim? “Geluk”, stelde Foorthuis vast. Wel gaf hij zijn Zuidhorner collega’s een paar handige tips mee. Gooi de parkeergarages dicht, zorg dat parkeren gratis blijft voor jullie klanten en gun elkaar –ook je directe concurrenten in het centrum- de omzet. “Klanten waarderen kameraadschap en eensgezindheid”, aldus de ervaren kledinghandelaar uit Drenthe. De belangrijkste tip bewaarde hij als uitsmijter. “Zorg dat je koopcentrum zichtbaar is en plaats borden langs de aanrijroute”, deelde hij mee. Op de vraag of de gemeente die borden niet weg zou halen, antwoordde Foorthuis dat men gewoon een paar elektriciteitskabels langs de palen moest leggen en deze ingraven. “Dat schrikt gemeentewerkers vaak wel af.” Helaas was ook burgemeester Greetje de Vries-Leggedoor aanwezig die het goedbedoelde, maar o-zo foute, advies ongetwijfeld heeft meegekregen. Verder werden de leden van de Zakenkring door Arnold Wegman bijgepraat over de financiële situatie van de vereniging -die overigens rooskleurig is- en werd Margriet Zijlstra verwelkomd als secretaris. “En daar ben ik blij mee”, zei Oomkes, die het wel jammer vindt dat bij Margriet alles in de roze aangekleed moet zijn. “Er ligt hier zelfs een oneetbare roze koek!”
Voorts werd doorgenomen wat er in 2018 allemaal staat te gebeuren in het centrum van Zuidhorn. Liefst twintig zaterdagen wordt het publiek vermaakt in het Zuidhorner winkelhart. Twee modeshows, een buitenspeeldag, oldtimerritten en nog veel meer leuke activiteiten staan op het programma. De helpende handen zijn geregeld en staan voor het hele jaar al vast. “We hebben elkaar nodig”, gaf Oomkes ‘zijn’ ondernemers mee. “We zijn nu nog de grootste kern van de gemeente. Maar dat gaat veranderen. Straks zijn we één van de –minstens- 42 kernen in de nieuwe gemeente Westerkwartier. Als we dan nog iets willen, zullen we stappen moeten blijven maken.” Waarbij duidelijk werd wat er in Zuidhorn in ieder geval niet zal gebeuren, als het aan de Zakenkring ligt: betaald parkeren. De doodsteek voor koopcentra als de onze en bovendien helemaal niet rendabel, aldus Oomkes.
