In Toormina NSW on “ALDI Toormina - Packaged...” at 52 Minorie Drive, Toormina 2452:

Timothy Colley. commented

I am in favour of granting a licence for retailing packaged liquor in the Aldi Toormina store.

Competition improves pricing and range for shoppers: the other Aldi outlets selling liquor I have inspected in NSW and other states have provided excellent value at a good range of price levels consistent with the requirements of their shoppers.

To deny such a licence would allow the current major supermarket operators to continue their market dominance and deny the community the choice and pricing Aldi can provide.

Any argument suggesting that Toormina has already enough outlets for retailing liquor is null and void, based on the current population numbers in that district in relation to Coffs Harbour itself, where the relative number of outlets per head of population is far higher.

I am a member of the general public with no connection to Aldi: I have never made a donation or gift to any Councillor or Council employee.
