MYER Announcement Welcome
Victor P Taffa
Opposition Leader, Terry Mills, has welcomed the agreement between Myer Holdings and the GPT Group which will see a Myer store opened at Casuarina by the end of 2016.
Mr. Mills said today’s announcement adds some certainty to speculation Myer would come to Darwin.
“This is a commercial decision between Myer and GPT holdings which will be welcomed by all Territorians.” Mr. Mills said.
“Over the past few years there have been more speculation about Myer setting up in Darwin than UFO sightings.”
“Today’s announcement adds clarity to the debate.” Mr. Mills said.
“There is still a lot of work to be done before Territorians are shopping in our brand new Myer store, but the Country Liberals are behind the plan.”
“Increased competition will bring down prices and add to Darwin’s visitor appeal.”
“A Country Liberals Government will work hard to attract retail outlets to the Territory to increase competition and bring down prices.” Mr. Mills said.
“We will also concentrate on improving housing affordability which is essential to accommodate retail and economic growth in the Territory.”Mr. Mills said.
