Back on the mar­ket

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Front Page - By MON­TANA ARDON

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.”
