The Mother Natures store opened in Tuggeranong Hyperdome carpark about 5 years ago to great fanfare. They put the wind right up the supermarkets and tried to be loss leaders with great fruit, veg & deli specials and a great range of continental food. Sundays had a market day atmosphere. When the Queanbeyan store opened the enthusiasm in Tuggeranong seemed to wear off a bit. They then sold off most of the liquor lines and now don’t seem to be re-stocking the non perishable goods.
I know the drought and the economy have depressed business confidence but this business appeared to have it made and was winning customers away from the majors by the great service and different range. Are the other Mother Nature stores suffering the same disease?
