Shops return to Centro

IT HAS been more than eight months since a fire at Centro caused the closure of four stores but they are finally back and open for business.

Harvey Norman, Rivers, Sportfirst and Dollars and Sense have all opened up over the past few weeks marking the end of a difficult time for business owners and Centro Centre Management.

The stores were all closed following a fire at Harvey Norman on July 26 last year.

Peter MacInnes who is the electrical franchisee at Harvey Norman said it was great to be back at the old store.

“We had been operating from a temporary store for eight months and it is great to be back at Centro,” he said.

“I think it is going to be good for Centro having Harvey Norman there too.”

Mr MacInnes said the store would celebrate their return with a grand reopening this Saturday.
