Dalby set for re­tail ther­apy boom time

Western Times - - BEST OF THE WEST -

DALBY’S re­tail sec­tor is set to get a strong in­jec­tion as some gi­ants of the in­dus­try edge closer to open­ing their doors.

Bun­nings Ware­house is set to open in mid-Oc­to­ber while the site for the pro­posed Aldi store has been cleared, with con­struc­tion work set to be­gin in the near fu­ture.

News has also bro­ken that Jean­swest will also set up shop in the town.

Dalby Shop­ping­world man­ager Jon Rus­sell said the ad­di­tion of these shop­ping su­per­pow­ers were a pos­i­tive for the area.

“From a town point of view, we’ve got ma­jor re­tail­ers who have con­fi­dence in the West­ern Downs, and I think that shows the strength of our re­gional econ­omy here,” Mr Rus­sell said. “Jean­swest is open­ing here late Septem­ber, and it’s ex­cit­ing; it’s a young, pre­mium brand with fash­ion that suits young to old.

“The last three months of re­tail here have been very op­ti­mistic, nu­mer­ous stores have re­ported to me they’ve had an in­creased trade from last year.”
