Busi­ness as usual at new lo­ca­tion for Mari­nos

Whitsunday Times - - WHITSUNDAY BUSINESS -

IT IS busi­ness as usual for staff of Marino’s Deli who are happy to be op­er­at­ing out of the deli’s tem­po­rary lo­ca­tion next door to Coles at the Whit­sun­day Shop­ping Cen­tre.

Marino’s Deli was gut­ted af­ter a fire broke out shortly be­fore mid­night of Thurs­day, March 7, and busi­ness own­ers Marino and Yvonne Roberto were de­ter­mined to turn the dev­as­tat­ing news into a pos­i­tive step for­ward.

Mrs Roberto said they were ap­proached by Whit­sun­day Shop­ping Cen­tre man­age­ment who of­fered for Marino’s to re­sume busi­ness tem­po­rar­ily out of the empty cafe next to Coles un­til their pre­vi­ous lo­ca­tion, next to Buck’s Seafood, could be re­stored.

“The on­go­ing sup­port of the Whit­sun­day com­mu­nity has been fan­tas­tic and we are very happy to be fully op­er­a­tional again,” she said.

“We are now wait­ing for our pre­vi­ous lo­ca­tion to be re­struc­tured be­fore we can move in and be­gin re­fur­bish­ments.”

Mrs Roberto said the long term plan was to move back to their orig­i­nal lo­ca­tion as soon as pos­si­ble.

OPEN FOR BUSI­NESS: Marino's Deli owner Yvonne Roberto with deli as­sis­tants Linda Davis and Car­men Pan­nan are serv­ing the com­mu­nity from their tem­po­rary lo­ca­tion next door to Coles at the Whit­sun­day Shop­ping Cen­tre.
