Crowd debates seven-day trade

ABOUT 100 people gathered at the RSL Kings Theatre last night for a public meeting about the prospect of Warwick adopting seven-day trading.

The Queensland Industrial Relations Commission will decide in early October whether or not Warwick businesses will be given leave to open seven days a week. 

The evening was organised by the Warwick Chamber of Commerce and will be used by the chamber to decide its position on the issue.

Currently the Chamber has no formal position on seven-day trading.

The five expert panellists were GPS Lawyers partner Shane Power, Toowoomba Chamber of Commerce president Geoff McDonald, Chamber of Commerce and Industry Queensland south-west regional manager Barry Byrne, Rose City Shoppingworld centre manager Jason Gard and National Retail Association director of corporate affairs Jed Moore.

The Chamber of Commerce also last night voted to support Warwick becoming an RV-friendly town.

Be sure to get a copy of tomorrow’s Daily News for full coverage of the public meeting and the RV-friendly decision.
