Goondiwindi region worth investing in

« Back

The Honourable Lawrence Springborg, Mayor of the Goondiwindi region, says the Goondiwindi Co-Operative’s purchase is welcome news for the community.

Goondiwindi is a known regional hub servicing more than 20,000 people from within the region and beyond, but was left with only one choice of supermarket after the Goondiwindi Co-Operative went into voluntary administration in April 2020.

Cr Springborg said the announcement would ensure that the marketplace for groceries in Goondiwindi remains open and competitive.

“I’m very glad to hear today’s news and to know that shoppers in Goondiwindi will continue to be able to choose where to spend when it comes to groceries and everyday household items,” Cr Springborg said.

“It’s been terribly unfortunate to see the Co-Op go after so many years in the town,” the Mayor said. “However, now we need to focus on securing jobs and ensuring choice for consumers going forward.”

Goondiwindi Regional Council has been a strong advocate for the need of a town of this size to have an alternative service provider since the announcement of the Co-Operative’s closure. Council also promotes the region to potential buyers and investors as part of its economic development role in the region.

Cr Springborg said that the Goondiwindi region presented an excellent investment opportunity and we are proud to promote this.  “We welcome Mr Nguyen and his family to the Goondiwindi region,” he said.
