Re­pair carpark

Warragul & Drouin Gazette - - NEWS -

The Coles carpark in Drouin needs re­pair and more ad­e­quate light­ing.

On Mon­day evening around 7.30pm I stepped out of my car at Drouin Coles, locked it, then stepped (un­in­ten­tion­ally, I might add) onto the edge of a large pot­hole and fell, twist­ing my an­kle. Un­til I was on the ground gasp­ing in pain, I did not see the pot­hole, given that the carpark light­ing was so poor. When I did see it, it was at eye level from my prone po­si­tion on the tar­mac. I lay there on the ground un­able to move for sev­eral min­utes, un­til two young women came to my aid.

The Coles store man­ager An­thony was rather amaz­ing. Not only did he ban­dage my an­kle, but did my shop­ping for me, and had the girls bring my cards and shop­ping to me. I was even given a bonus choco­late bag as “com­fort” food, to help the heal­ing process.

Ap­par­ently, Coles do not own the store but rent the premises and it is the re­spon­si­bil­ity of the build­ing owner to main­tain the carpark and pro­vide light­ing for the carpark.
