Farrer Shopping Centre IGA

By erephyshy 7 June 2011 41

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.

What’s Your opinion?

I feel that IGA opening at Farrer Shops would be fantastic for the community. I do have to admit the farrer supermarket staff are extremely friendly but we need to look at the bigger picture. IGA would likely have more of a range of products, which I sometimes cannot find in the smaller supermarket. As a local of Farrer I feel that IGA would be perfect for our suburb as it would open doors for many young people, including myself – for a good first job that is close to home. I am 20 years old, and unfortunately have never had a job due to being a carer for my grandparnets and a hectic lifestyle, if I could apply for the supermarket I would. I ask of the community kindly to please think about how convenient IGA would be, it wouldn’t mean getting overwhelmed by the overload of products in woolworths in the next suburb, but it would have the right amount of range of products ideal for everyday needs – along with some extra needs, moreso then the supermarket. Perhaps the supermarket could turn into a post office? like the one in Mawson for example? That would be really great – that way they’d still have good bussiness and people could come to buy presents for friends, as well as post them. Much thanks, hope to hear back from you black_cats_rock@hotmail.com
