LO­CALLY OWNED

Deniliquin Pastoral Times - - NEWS -

One of Cen­tral IGA De­niliquin’s great­est at­tributes is that it’s owned and run by lo­cal peo­ple.

Co-own­ers Rob Hal­lum and Co­rina and Glenn Beames have spent the ma­jor­ity of their lives liv­ing in De­niliquin.

With the prof­its from the busi­ness stay­ing lo­cal, this en­sures they are able to give back to the com­mu­nity that sup­ports them.

Mr Hal­lum said IGA’s sup­port of the com­mu­nity wouldn’t be pos­si­ble if the busi­ness wasn’t owned lo­cally.

‘‘I per­son­ally have only ever worked for lo­cal busi­nesses in town,’’ he said.

‘‘I know that with­out the sup­port of fel­low lo­cals, we wouldn’t have been open for the past 21 years.

‘‘That’s why we en­joy putting money back into the town as a way to say thank you for our sup­port.

‘‘As an in­de­pen­dently owned busi­ness we have more free­dom with our de­ci­sions to sup­port the lo­cal com­mu­nity.’’
