Pilbara News - - News - Louise Alling­ham

An Ex­mouth bot­tle shop is hop­ing to open ev­ery Sun­day be­tween April and Oc­to­ber.

Own­ers of Cel­lar­bra­tions – Sam’s Cel­lars have ap­plied for an ex­tended trad­ing per­mit from the Depart­ment of Rac­ing, Gam­ing and Liquor with the Shire of Ex­mouth’s sup­port.

Owner Rob Man­ning said open­ing on Sun­days would ben­e­fit the town’s visi­tors dur­ing tourism sea­son. “Be­cause Ex­mouth is a tourist town, peo­ple want to see vi­brancy and ac­tiv­ity any day of the week,” he said.

“It’s not just about good busi­ness for us; it’s also about pro­vid­ing that ser­vice for the visi­tors (and) also for the whole town.”

The bot­tle shop was pre­vi­ously granted a per­mit to trade on Sun- days be­tween April and Septem­ber which has since ex­pired.

“We’re ask­ing for Oc­to­ber as well be­cause what we found with the other one (was that) the end of the sea­son is re­ally af­ter the Oc­to­ber school hol­i­days so we were sort of miss­ing out on the end of the sea­son,” Mr Man­ning said.
