Amy Bowie is the project manager hired to manage the exiting of Port Grocer as the business closes its doors. The shop front is selling everything including furniture and equipment.
“I only started three weeksago so I am not that emotionally attached as the people that worked here. It’s sad to see this business go because it did so much for this community,” Ms Bowie said.
The shop supported volunteers with disabilities and excess food went to the homeless shelter.
“They have less waste here in this supermarket than I do in my own home,” Ms Bowie said.
Nevertheless, after only 40 weeks open and largely due to Covid-19 restrictions, Port Grocer has closed their doors for good.
