In a good way! We read in the Mudgee Guardian recently that the plans for an upgraded Country Target store are now on display at the Mid-Western Regional Council.
What does a larger Target store mean for Mudgee? Well for starters, it shows just how much Mudgee is growing. The need to service a growing population and recognising that there is a market for a bigger range of products is reassurance that the Mudgee economy is strong and sustainable.
Attracting shoppers to a Country Target store that is three times larger than the present Target store however, will have mixed repercussions for other local businesses too. Whilst we hope that Target doesn’t take patronage from competing local CBD business owners, we do hope it encourages more people to shop locally rather than online or outside of Mudgee. In that sense, we hope it has a positive effect on the community.
On display at the Mid-Western Regional Council until July 15, we encourage anyone with an interest in the proposal to have a look and submit their feedback.
