Bribie Discount Handyman Materials has advised customers that they will be closing the doors for the final time on June 15th due to not having renewed their lease with McDonald’s.

They say that there were a number of reasons as to why this decision had to be made. As a store that always carried a large of building materials, tools, and other household items, Discount Handyman Materials has been popular with both tradies and the DIY enthusiasts on the island from when they first opened and the closure will adversely affect many within the local community.

As well as the obvious ramifications to tradespeople, another regrettable result of the closure will be the loss of a number of jobs and, whilst there is a certain amount of employment in the local area, it is more likely that these workers who until now did not have to travel very far from home to earn a living will end up either joining the growing list of unemployed or find a job which requires them to spend what used their leisure time in travel.

Those of us who have lived here for a long time have witnessed many changes within the area and although we know that change is a good thing and is brought about to improve conditions when a well-patronized business closes the doors, there is no benefit to anyone.
