The ABC is fretting that a recent spate of petrol station closures could impact the shops surrounding Watson, Garran, Fisher and Kingston through a reduction of passing traffic.
While I think we can rest easy that Kingston’s trade is not servo-dependent how important are the others?
I know that personally I shop on foot and fill up with my car, meaning I almost never shop on a petrol run beyond what can be bought in the servo itself. Do others of you do it differently? Could the servos closing actually increase business in those centres?
