In ad­di­tion, the prop­erty also con­tains a three­bed­room home be­hind the shops.

Mr Kong said the 529 square me­tre sin­gle-storey build­ing was con­structed in the late 1960s, and sat on 1,360 square me­tres of land. Neigh­bour­ing re­tail ten­an­cies piggy-back­ing off the route’s high traf­fic num­bers in­clude Count­down, PGG Wright­son and Z-en­ergy.
