Business is looking bright for local store ‘Aussie Disposals’ after its recent move to Fifteenth Street from the Langtree Mall.
The store, which offers a variety of quality products from outdoor, hunting and camping gear to work wear for all budgets, has seen a more regular flow of customers since relocating.
Store owner Jason Cook has been thrilled with the move.
“Moving location during a pandemic was always risky. There wasn’t a lease available in the mall that was big enough at a reasonable price, it was all inflated, and the opportunity to move to a bigger store for a smaller price on Fifteenth was there … so we took it,” he explained.
“We had great business in the Mall originally, but as soon as cafes and other stores around us started disappearing it became quieter.
“Pretty much every month on Fifteenth so far we’ve had an increase and there’s been more regular foot-traffic, which is great. It’s been enjoyable.”
Now that the business is settled in it’s new spot, Jason is focusing on making Aussie Disposals one of the go-to local stores in Mildura.
“We’re working with a local company as our landlord and we’re both all about improving local businesses, which is great because we really love serving and pleasing locals and we can now also get the things we want done to improve, done,” he said.
“It’s always important for local businesses who understand the area to grow and we want to encourage more people to shop local.”
