Holey moley – Don’t fall into the asphalt abyss

By Jim Birchall

Potholes continue to plague the carpark adjacent to the Warehouse and Pak’nSave at Botany Town Centre.

The area, which is owned by Foodstuffs, has been in a state of disrepair for some time and bad sentiment is growing with locals who bring their families to shop.

Botany MP Jami-Lee Ross has sent a letter to the CEOs of Foodstuffs, The Warehouse and the owner of Danske Mobler asking them to address the issue.

Foodstuffs was approached for comment and external relations manager Sue Hamilton said: “We’ve heard the complaints about the carpark at Pak’nSave Botany and other stores in the area.  We are working with the body corporate to rectify this.

Meanwhile Pak’nSave owner operator Russ Wilkinson said: “As you will all know, we are doing some major works on the store and part of the refurbishment includes making big improvements to the carpark – such as more parking bays and trolley bays,”

“On behalf of the team at Pak’nSave Botany, I would like to let the community know Pak’nSave is working hard to push the body corporate to take action and remedy the car park with much urgency.

“The store is currently undertaking some major refurbishment works and we very much want the car park fixed prior to the unveiling of the new look Pak’nSave in November.

“Our apologies for the inconvenience. Please trust the Pak’nSave team are absolutely on the case and bear with us in the short term.”
