Very challenging time in Queensland at the moment.

We can’t reiterate enough the five key messages to our members- 

  1. Social Distancing 1.5m apart marked on the floor in your shop
  2. Hand Sanitiser to be used by staff and made available to the public
  3. Mandatory Face Coverings -keep your staff and the public safe
  4. Get vaccinated -book in today
  5. Let’s keep positive with our local communities – we are an essential service and in lockdown, our communities need our connection.

Kind regards,

VACCINATION THE ONLY WAY OUT #GETVACCINATED

VACCINATION THE ONLY WAY OUT #GETVACCINATED

Dear Members,

I urge everyone when it’s your turn and for most people, it’s now or in the next month please get vaccinated.

High vaccination rates keeps us well and protects you, your family, and the wider community against COVID19. It’s completely free.

The sooner we all get vaccinated the sooner we can all get back to normal.

I had my first jab on Friday at Sunshine Hospital and the process & procedure was smooth & seamless with Jo my professional nurse administering the jab.

Don’t wait, the time is now, some 4.2million people around the world have died from this virus.

Kind regards,

BRISBANE WIN 2032 OLYMPIC GAMES

BRISBANE WIN 2032 OLYMPIC GAMES

Dear Members,

We think this is great for the QLD economy and Australia.

Imagine the foot traffic going into QLD retail with an extra 4 million people converging on QLD for the Olympic Games and the additional building and construction & other sectors that will attract over 100,000 jobs in the lead into the Olympics.

No country does the Olympic Games better than Australia, exhibit ASydney Olympic Games in 2000 still remains the best Olympic Games ever.

More jobs, more people, more foot traffic!
