Le­gacy con­tin­ues with new own­ers

Gatton Star - - NEWS -

QUAL­ITY, cus­tomer ser­vice and the com­mu­nity are three things Aaron Werth pri­ori­tised as the man­ager of Gat­ton Betta Home Liv­ing and in 2019 he plans to con­tinue the prac­tice as owner.

Af­ter man­ag­ing the store for four years, Mr Werth and his wife Jodie Werth pur­chased the Rail­way Street busi­ness in De­cem­ber.

Mr Werth said they planned for the tran­si­tion of own­ers to be seam­less with no changes to the staff, store or their ser­vice.

“We want to con­tinue our cus­tomer ser­vice, that’s our point of dif­fer­ence with a lot of other stores,” Mr Werth said.

“It’s a non-pushy ser­vice and a flex­i­ble de­liv­ery ser­vice that we tend to of­fer com­pared to other ser­vices that only de­liver on cer­tain days.”

The cou­ple take over from Ivy O’brien who had owned the store for over a decade.

Own­ing a busi­ness in the main street of Gat­ton is spe­cial to the pair who were both born and raised in the re­gion – they looked for­ward to ser­vic­ing the com­mu­nity.

“We have good re­li­able brands which comes back to cus­tomer ser­vice be­cause we don’t want to sell them rub­bish,” he said.

“We would rather carry qual­ity gear rather than nasty makes.”

Along with the elec­tri­cal and home liv­ing prod­ucts, the busi­ness is also Gat­ton’s only sport­ing goods store.

Mr and Mrs Werth hoped to con­tinue the le­gacy of the O’brien fam­ily.
