WESTERN suburbs’ first ALDI Australia supermarket will replace the Captain Stirling Shopping Centre. I love that IGA. The gent that runs it is amazing. He is always helping mums with young kids and more mature people by carrying groceries to your car. It is my local and the only grocery store I go to. We won't get that service from Aldi.
- Nardia Smith Ugh Aldi! Why do we need an Aldi, cheap and nasty food.
- Caroline Lehmann So sad. I know that shopping centre since it was a Charlie Carters. I love the owner/business feel to the shopping centre. Ironic that you can fight off Woolworths for the pub but Aldi gets in and buys the shopping centre. How did that happen?
- Genevieve McMullan A CHARITY worker claims to know of up to a dozen Aussie veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan sleeping rough near Perth beaches. Veterans should be well looked after. It is not acceptable for them to be discarded onto the scrap heap. Take heed politicians of all political persuasions, you are the ones that send these valued members of our society to war, you should make damn sure they are looked after. And not just for a few months when they return but for life. Not bloody good enough in my book. And yes my family were of military background; one in the SAS and one in the navy.
- Rolly Rollason FANS of Subiaco’s Station Street Markets are still reeling from the news that it will close to make way for a ColesTarget shopping precinct. As a member of the public who has shopped at the Station Street markets for years and years... and even more years than I can remember, I have certainly NOT “come to terms with it”. It is very sad that greed has once again trampled over community feelings.
- Ruth Oxley I find Mr Bouyahia’s comments interesting given that no stallholder in the Station Street Markets has a lease that puts a gun to their head. I’m sure that all have stayed not because of a false delusion, but because the Markets is an extremely successful enterprise (probably because it is privately managed) and all stallholders stay because they actually make money. Walk up Rokeby Road and count the empty shops... who’s really closing down? - Peter Tomkins
