Long-term ten­ant looks to fu­ture

Warwick Daily News - - NEWS -

ROSE City Premium Meats co-owner Peter Wright has been in Rose City Shop­ping­world from day one. He was work­ing with Carey Bros when the butch­ery opened in the Rose City Cen­tre in 1984.

“Back then the end of the shop­ping cen­tre was where the newsagent’s go­ing to be,” Mr Wright said.

“Down here was orig­i­nally where Wool­lies was in the first cen­tre and then they moved up to where they are now in 1997 and Bi-Lo moved in and re­fur­bished and opened in March 1998.

“It was the first time we got a proper food court, be­fore that there was only the carvery.

“A lot has come and gone since then. I think we’ve been lucky to have such a good cen­tre to keep peo­ple shop­ping in lo­cally.”

Peter Wright has seen a lot of changes in 20 years.
