Oranjemund Bush Telegraph! / Woolworths Pulling Out of Oranjemund!
« Last post by Michael Alexander on June 09, 2020, 04:34:17 PM »
Woolworths in Oranjemund have announced that they will be withdrawing from Oranjemund at the end of the month. Local gossip citing that the cost of having to transport their goods an additional 1800km now that they Alexander Bay border is closed, has become to expensive. In addition declining sales and an uncertain future makes operations unsustainable.....

One fears that the entire world is changing....... perhaps not always for the better.....

I saved this because our golden retriever, Shenzi, and myself are featured on page 11. There might be something else of interest to someone in the gazette.
