Should more food vans and pop-up shops be al­lowed to op­er­ate in Broome?

Run­way Bar and Restau­rant man­ager Tex Kitchen

It would be dif­fi­cult for us as a per­ma­nent restau­rant and bar to com­pete with a food van while we keep our doors open over the wet, pay rent for the fa­cil­ity and come up with wages.

Real es­tate agent Tony Hutchin­son

The non-per­ma­nent peo­ple should pay rent re­flect­ing the amount of busi­ness be­ing done and rents paid by com­peti­tors.

Yuen Wing Gen­eral Store owner Kwok Chan

Chinatown busi­nesses pay land rates and taxes, but mo­bile traders can just pop up, make money and leave with­out pay­ing these same rates.

Pearl re­tailer David Gal­wey

If it is not re­stricted to spe­cial event days, we will wind up with a lot of busi­nesses pos­si­bly clos­ing their doors.

Man­grove Ho­tel gen­eral man­ager Glyn Bat­ten

Any neg­a­tive im­pact on the pe­ri­ods where ev­ery­one is try­ing to make a liv­ing is a detri­ment to the town.

Shady Lane Cafe man­ager Deb­bie Young

It would af­fect not only our busi­ness, but many other traders in Chinatown and the Shire have to look else­where.
