Car pro shops are expected to open their doors in the Westgate shopping centre, the Queensland Government has announced.
Key points:It is expected to be the largest car and motorcycle shops in the state’s capitalQueensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said the centre would be a catalyst for more job growth and more economic growthQueenslands Premier Annapurna Palaszek said the store will be a major job generatorThe announcement comes just days after a Queensland Government study found that nearly a third of Queenslanders were jobless.
Ms Palasza said the plan was to “provide opportunities to young people to get a foot in the door and work their way up to a job, and create a sense of self-worth”.
“There’s a lot of young people out there that feel like they’re out of place in a world that’s not really welcoming them,” she said.
“And it’s a great way for Queenslanders to see if they have the ability to make their mark.”‘
Very good for the community’Ms Palasszek said a car and motorbike shop would be “very good for our community”.
“We know there’s a huge demand for the kind of retail that we’re looking at and we’re very excited about this opportunity to be a part of the Queensland car and bike market,” she added.
“It’s going to be very good for Queensland.”
Ms Palaski said the shop would open in time for the start of Queensland’s Summer Holiday.
“The opportunity to expand in such a small space is something that’s going in very good shape and very good to the community,” she explained.
“We are going to work closely with the community to make sure that we are really supportive of that and making sure that it’s the right fit.”‘
A wonderful way to attract people’A spokeswoman for the Queensland Building and Construction Commission said the new car and car shop would have a “massive impact” on the local economy.
“I think the most important thing to remember about the car and shop is it’s not just a job for people who have no experience or no skill,” she told news.com.au.
“There are many other things that can be done for the local community.”
Ms Alberici said the scheme was “an opportunity to attract more people into the local car and cycling market”.
“It is a wonderful way for people to come to the region and shop and visit our local communities,” she concluded.
