Young and old celebrate
WHILE parents and kids were out in force to mark 20 years of Big W yesterday, two past Rose City Shoppingworld employees also celebrated. Gilbert and Joyce Brodie were cleaners in McConaghy centres for 35 years.
“We’re friends with most of the girls, and they’re friends with us,” Mrs Brodie said.
“We’ve seen the centre grow from next to nothing to what it is today.”
