Help us to get 7 day trading in Mount Isa

This petition had 325 supporters

Mount Isa it is time we push for 7 day trading.
We need our major shopping centres open seven days a week to support our community and a future city that we want to live in.
We live in a city that the single major employer operates 7 days a week and so does so many of our other services except for the two major supermarkets.
Since Woolworths on Able Smith Parade shut the increase in trade is almost out of control when majority of the residents of Mount Isa go shopping for their groceries, long query and insufficient parking majority of the time, put additional stress on families.
Employment should be increased at both supermarkets due to the seven day trading.
I do realise that people are concerned with the smaller independent stores however I know I for one as many others will continue to support these stores for same items they buy from their corner store today.
We need to step forward and create a city that promotes a lifestyle that is attractive to the majority of Australia and this will help liveability, investment and development in the cities future
