Readers on Facebook were vocal for and against a recently approved liquor store in Huntingdale.
FINALLY!!! People are too scared of change and development. These stores have been needed to draw more custom to that shopping centre to benefit existing small business owners. – Jennifer Keys
Watch that little park across from it fill up with undesirables, causing all kinds of hassles. Look what happens at Ashburton Rd shops – the same thing So glad it never went ahead while I was living just behind those shops. There are pubs and bottle shops close by. – Tash Woodward
I was the first person to get a petition and signatures against it and it was accepted. Before I left Huntingdale, another lady came around and signed a petition against a liquor shop there, they won't listen to the people who live in the area, I knew it would eventually happen. Just so glad we moved! – Beverley Anne Whittington
That little shopping centre was a gold mine when it first opened, but it’s not nowadays. That building in the middle of the carpark was to be a doctors surgery and pathology but it never got passed for that!! – Cindy Romaro
There goes Huntingdale shops. – Michael Meldrum
