Re­pairs start for IGA dam­aged by cy­clone

Pilbara News - - Business - Tom Zaun­mayr

■ Ex­mouth IGA is un­der­go­ing lon­gawaited works to re­pair dam­age to the store caused by Cy­clone Ol­wyn ear­lier this year.

The su­per­mar­ket is closed for the next few weeks, mean­ing lo­cals are re­ly­ing on the smaller Nin­ga­loo IGA Xpress down the other end of the shop­ping cen­tre.

Ex­mouth IGA owner Trevor Clarke said the roof and wall would be fixed, but no ma­jor changes would be un­der­taken.

“We didn’t have time to re­build from Cy­clone Ol­wyn be­fore the hol­i­day sea­son started,” he said.

“There was a ba­sic fix-up to get the store through tourism sea­son and now it’s qui­eter we de­cided now is the best time. There might be longer lines at times at the other su­per­mar­ket but I think the lo­cals un­der­stand it needs to be done.”

Mr Clarke said it should be re­opened by the end of Novem­ber.
