As residents of Farrer, we were disgusted to learn that IGA has bought Wilson’s Organics and plan to open on that site.
What about the resident Farrer Supermarket, that is well-priced, well run, by Greg and Belinda, who have endeavoured to give the community a great supermarket? They even give Southlands a run for their money, often being cheaper.
Where is the incentive to invest in local business, when IGA, who are supposed to be for the local community, will come in and buy up and put the local bloke out of business?
There is a petition available to be signed at the Farrer Supermarket, so come on all you people who want to stand up for small business, take a trip to Farrer and help by signing the petition.
The ACT government has a great deal to answer for and it is up to the local community to do what is right, for the local community.
