AF­TER more than 40 years, Domenic Guadagnino has shut down Domenic’s Fruit & Veg at The Park Cen­tre to re­tire. De­spite clos­ing the shop on July 29, the Belmont res­i­dent’s pas­sion for fresh pro­duce will con­tinue with his back­yard hobby gar­den. As the el­dest child, Mr Guadagnino moved from a small town at the top of a moun­tain in south­ern Italy to Perth to sup­port his un­cle on a mar­ket gar­den in Man­jimup. Af­ter a three-month jour­ney by boat, he set to work night and day to learn his craft, do­ing count­less trips in the 1960s to sell pro­duce be­fore open­ing his store.
