Use it or lose it

IT SEEMS Tony Lush (November Herald Letters) expects our IGA to be a convenience store and have the lowest prices, an unlikely combination in a small town like Toodyay and the reason none of the major supermarkets have a store here.

Profit is reward for risk and the risk in establishing the business would have been considerable.

Apart from supplying a large variety of goods, store owners Amanda and Dean Carter provide employment for a lot of young and young-at-heart people.

They have also built extra premises so that anyone who wants to take a risk and open a business has a place available.

If everybody decided to shop elsewhere and we lost our IGA, it would be devastating for Toodyay.
