Western Suburbs Weekly - - Western Opinion -

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
