New start for Murrumbeena shopping strip
Over the past year as reported in a previous posting the Neerim rd shopping strip in Murrumbeena has sufferred a serious decline in patronage and vitality - This has been primarily because of the vitually non-operating state of the local IGA supermarket due to an ongoing lease dispute.
All business in the area has been affected severely as a walk through on any previously busy afternoon will confirm- Like banks or post-offices,local supermarkets are important features of any shopping strip - Having attended several traders association meetings the concerns were very real at this ongoing issue.
Pleased to confirm that there will be a re-opening of the store with new lease-holders on Monday July 11th and with a few celebrations. Hopefully this will be the start of the revitalisation of the shopping strip
