Comment on Coles milk sales limit puts Uncle Edy’s at risk by Darren Burton.

Scotty: Over half our employees are kids so you want me to make them walk to Coles to get milk every day? We have three to four employed each day not eight. I wonder, do you work in the public service where costs and job cuts are not a concern? I’m trying to keep my business open and staff employed.

Coles milk sales limit puts Uncle Edy’s at risk
Anonymous: We do use wholesalers but the costs are much higher than Coles and Woolworths.
In the eight years that we have been open we have not increased our cost on coffee.
I was informed by Coles management today that at this stage the only way I can get more than two milks a day is to send different staff members through the supermarket to get two each.
We then can send them to Woolworths and get two more each, we are only getting what we need to stay open.
Our quantity has not increased so I don’t understand the restrictions on milk.
I am trying to keep my staff employed and keep a little bit of normality in Alice.
Soon as my customers’ and staff’s health is at risk or the authorities tell me to close we will shut.
I plead with customers to support local businesses and to go on as normal as possible at this stage.

Well let’s get drilling. The rest of Australia needs our gas. Jobs for people in all our communities. Would be nice to have cheaper power for all Australians.
The sience has spoken and the tiny risk is worth taking for gains to all the community.
How can Mr Gunner work through this one? He took the votes from those who say no to gas but he needs the income from gas for the Territory.
