Rokeby Road busi­nesses rally

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Business - By LISA THOMAS

SU­BI­ACO busi­nesses on Rokeby Road will hold a VIP Event this week, of­fer­ing dis­counts and spe­cials to cus­tomers.

The event, be­ing held from Roberts Road to Hay Street, in­cludes 15 busi­nesses re­mind­ing shop­pers they are still open de­spite the Rokeby Road up­grades.

Event or­gan­iser and kikki.K Su­bi­aco store man­ager Eve­line Masco said since the up­grades to Rokeby Road had started, some busi­nesses had suf­fered, so the event was to re­ward loyal cus­tomers and in­vite new ones to Su­bi­aco.

“We are hop­ing to re­mind cus­tomers that we are all still open dur­ing the road works,” she said.

“When the works are fin­ished we will have a great new road and it’s some­thing to be ex­cited about, it’s al­ways easy to com­plain, but it’s more pro­duc­tive to come up with a so­lu­tion to in­vite peo­ple to Su­bi­aco.”

Fun­tas­tico’s Nicky Tangney said she had no­ticed Rokeby Road had been quiet dur­ing the up­grades, but was hop­ing this event could turn that around.

“It’s very proac­tive and it’s good that some of the busi­nesses can come to­gether to sup­port each other,” she said.

Kikki.K, Bang & Olufsen, Aveda, Boost Juice, Bs­tore, Menchies, San Churro, Ar­chi­tects and He­roes, Da­neechi, Floyd’s, Lin­neys, Cha Time, Vo­da­phone and 7Eleven will take part in the VIP event.

The VIP Event will be held to­mor­row at all par­tic­i­pat­ing stores.
