Businesses respond to Bundy's calls for local chains
BUNDABERG locals love having new and fun places to go. We asked them which businesses they wanted to come to the region and then went to those businesses to ask.
These businesses were popular picks:
- Krispy Kreme
- Baby Bunting
- Hog's Breath
- Beacon Lighting
- Body Shop
- Bucking Bulls
We went to them all.
So far, we've heard back from a small handful.
Baby Bunting says feedback is 'lovely'
A spokesperson for baby store Baby Bunting said they were excited to hear there was interest from Bundy locals.
"It is lovely to get these requests and I hope that we are able to organise a store in that area soon," they said.
Krispy Kreme says 'never say never'
Every time the NewsMail asks, Krispy Kreme donuts is top of the list for new businesses desired in the city.
But sadly, for donut lovers in our town, there are no immediate plans.
"We love that Bundaberg has so many Krispy Kreme fans," a spokesperson for the company said.
"However at this stage there are no plans to open a store.. but we never say never."
Sportsgirl passing it on
Fashion retailer Sportsgirl said Bundy's request for an outlet would be passed on to head office.
For lovers of salad bars everywhere the news is sad, it appears Sizzler will not be returning any time soon.
Hog's Breath once had a store in Bundaberg.
It closed its doors some time ago and locals haven't stopped asking for it to return.
Hog's Breath has at times said it would try to return and at other times said the idea was off the menu.
Last year Hogs Breath Cafe put the call out for a Bundaberg-based 'Boss Hog' to take on a local franchise.
Starbucks rumour mill in overdrive, but are they coming?
In December last year the coffee giant stayed quiet on rumours a cafe was planned for Bundy in March.
Time is ticking if that rumour is true.
