peter kinch commented on The Court House's blog post Application to run a post office in Stradbroke Library

"It is a crying shame that this shop has closed.  I hear all sorts of reasons why but the bottom line is of course the business model just did not work.  I hope we do not see a Tesco metro there as we can then kiss goodbye to our baker and…"
