Let’s save Mel­lors

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

THE im­pend­ing clo­sure of Gayn­dah’s Mel­lors Drap­ery and Hab­er­dash­ery has con­cerned small busi­ness own­ers search­ing for ways to keep the his­tor­i­cal shop open. Gayn­dah Real Es­tate owner Joanne Dowl­ing is chair­ing a meet­ing with busi­ness own­ers wor­ried that the clo­sure of the drap­ery could send shop­pers else­where and dam­age the town’s econ­omy. “We dis­cussed op­tions to re­tain Mel­lors. One op­tion dis­cussed was a co-op­er­a­tive, but we would need a busi­ness case,” Ms Dowl­ing said.
