Subi stall­hold­ers form group to voice con­cerns

Western Suburbs Weekly - - News -

SU­BI­ACO’S Sta­tion Street Mar­ket stall­hold­ers formed a com­mit­tee last week to pre­pare for its “in­evitable” re­de­vel­op­ment and work with the City of Su­bi­aco on a re­place­ment mar­ket.

Cam­paign man­ager Is­lam Bouyahia and own­ers of The Flower Mar­ket, Law­ley’s Bak­ery, An­gry Al­mond and TR & TR Fruit and Veg founded the com­mit­tee.

TR & TR stall­holder Diep Tran said it was heart­en­ing to see the stall­hold­ers sup­port each other and show a united front.

“We know that re­de­vel­op­ment will hap­pen, it’s just a mat­ter of time,” she said.

“The gen­eral mood among stall­hold­ers is anx­ious­ness; we don’t know how much stock to or­der, we are wor­ried about the pos­si­bil­ity of los­ing our liveli­hoods.

“The com­mit­tee’s main ob­jec­tive is to rep­re­sent the 60 stall own­ers at the mar­ket. It al­lows us to voice our con­cerns and opin­ions as a col­lec­tive group.”

Ms Tran said the com­mit­tee was very keen to work with the City to re­lo­cate or build a new mar­ket. “We want to see things hap­pen in a timely man­ner,” she said. “We don’t want to see the process de­layed by pol­i­tics.”
