Let’s save Mellors
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.
