Back on the market
DIEP Tran is two months away from opening her new and improved fruit and vegetable market at Grower’s Lane.
But it has not been a smooth journey for the businesswoman, who was forced to close TR & TR Fruit and Veg after 12 years when the Station Street Markets were demolished.
There was a long, expensive and unsuccessful application process with the City of Subiaco, followed by an appeal to the State Administrative Tribunal that finally gave the green light.
“There was a point where we were all willing to give up because it was dragging on for so long and it was starting to take its toll on us,” Ms Tran said.
“The motivation is back and our spirits are running high again.”
