Opportunity: Clare SA, a town now without a newsagency

The town of Clare in South Australia is without a newsagency following the liquidation of the newsagency that was in town. With a town population of 3,200 and regionally more, there is an opportunity for someone wanting to re-establish a newsagency-like business in town.

With the only business closed, the opportunity is interesting as starting fresh always is as you could make this what you want with core newsagency products a small part of something more current in appeal.

The contact details for the liquidator are: Ian Burford 08 8231 3323.

    Clare, Balhannah, Blackwood .. 3 closures in SA in last month or so. All relatively close to Adelaide. Part of the 15% closures expected each year. Every chance each site will reopen, none as newsagents.

    Ken, the software the business used is not relevant whatsoever. A colleague from years ago mentioned it to me and passed on the liquidator details.

    You went broke, Ken, costing newsagency suppliers and banks well over two million dollars. Not every story has to be like your story. There are newsagents who are happy in their businesses, newsagents who are making good money.

    By all means, have an opinion, but be relevant.
