Yes what about Primrose Sands - this is a community that supports your store all the time - all the school mums etc but I bet not many people from Midway or Sorell usually support your store - so I think it’s disgraceful that you are not servicing Primrose - very very poor.

delivery to Carlton but NOT Carlton River which is 5 minutes away from the Salvo shop on Carlton River Road ..... 😕

Thank you. Sorell’s a huge area though.

Linda Spotswood how awesome is this 💜
