There is uncertainty with many in the Bairnsdale community around the pending move of Woolworths into the Kmart store announced late last week.
I was made aware of this on Thursday night (September 3).
It was pleasing to see Kmart management issue an immediate statement that it wishes to maintain a presence in Bairnsdale and is exploring potential sites for relocation this week.
Since Friday and over the weekend, I have been involved in discussions with the council, local real estate agents and potential landlords and discussions are well advanced.
Kmart management arrives in Bairnsdale this week and we look forward to working together to achieve a suitable relocation and save these jobs.
