“It is a big chal­lenge but I feel as if we thrive on a chal­lenge like this.”

Bryan said the Lin­nells will make the newsagency about three things — with a large fo­cus on the com­mu­nity.

“We want to have a real fo­cus on cus­tomer ser­vice, we want peo­ple to en­joy their ex­pe­ri­ence when they come into the shop and we also want to ex­pand our busi­ness. We are putting those three things to­gether to hope­fully make a suc­cess­ful busi­ness.”

While both Bryan and Wayne think the small time pe­riod be­tween now and Labour Day week­end is slightly “am­bi­tious” they both knew it was bet­ter to do it sooner rather than later.

Wayne said he has full con­fi­dence in the Lin­nell fam­ily and what they have planned for the fu­ture.

“I have no doubt when I say that in five years’ time I will look back and Bryan, Rhonda and Tim will have the newsagents go­ing strong,” he said.

Bryan thanked Wayne and Karen for their help through the tran­si­tion pe­riod to date.

“Wayne and Karen have made this process al­most de­light­ful, I say al­most be­cause there has been a lot of pa­per­work,” he said.

“Tak­ing on this role def­i­nitely isn’t some­thing we an­tic­i­pated, we have only been in the busi­ness for four months but when this op­por­tu­nity popped up it was just too good to refuse.

“We can’t wait to get started.”
