Congratulations to Leanne and Wayne, who officially took over the Jamieson General Store on Wednesday. After the closed sign was flipped over on the door, we joined them for a glass of bubbles.
The General Store in Jamieson is the only shop in town. The only other retail businesses are a service station, post office, cafe and two pubs. (At least the town has its priorities right). As it is a 70km round trip to the nearest supermarket, the General Store needs to be pretty well stocked with any daily requisites.
The standard of culinary services is about to get a radical improvement. A coffee machine is going in, and rumor has it that Melbourne gourmet providore Meribel Fine Foods will supplying stock. Yum! We dropped in for an Egg and Bacon roll yesterday which was excellent, and I am led to believe steamed dim sims are on their way.
