A FACE­BOOK post by Lisa Potts on Whit­sun­days Chat this week asked mem­bers what they thought Airlie needed in re­gard to busi­ness.

The ques­tion brought in more than 300 re­sponses. Here are some of the most pop­u­lar.


A POP­U­LAR opin­ion among mem­bers was for a cin­ema to be in­tro­duced in Airlie Beach.

In Oc­to­ber last year, Whit­sun­day Re­gional Coun­cil unan­i­mously sup­ported an ap­pli­ca­tion made by Ron Har­ris for two cin­ema screens and a plan­e­tar­ium in Airlie. How­ever, the plan is yet to come to fruition.


IT WASN’T the first time Kmart lovers have come forth ex­press­ing their wish for the re­tailer to open a store in Airlie.

The store re­ceived the sec­ond high­est num­ber of votes from mem­bers of the group.

Bowl­ing al­ley

A BOWL­ING al­ley was an­other pop­u­lar op­tion with many peo­ple de­sir­ing more ac­tiv­i­ties avail­able for kids and fam­i­lies.


SINCE KFC shut its doors in Airlie Beach about six years ago, the push to have it come back has been a force­ful one by some res­i­dents.

This week, there was be­lief the pop­u­lar fast-food chain was open­ing a store in Proser­pine.

This is yet to be con­firmed.


IT WAS a close call but itch­ing its way into the top five was the su­per­mar­ket, Aldi.

Aldi is one of Aus­tralia’s big­gest dis­count su­per­mar­kets and it seems Whit­sun­day res­i­dents would love to have their very own on their doorstep.
