More flood-affected businesses reopening in M'boro, Tinana

A NUMBER of flood-affected businesses in Maryborough's CBD have started trading from temporary locations while repairs are carried out.

Westpac Maryborough has moved to the corner of Kent and Bazaar Sts where it is offering its full service at regular branch hours.

Specsavers Optometrists is operating from the Brolga Theatre and offering some services. The normal phone number of 4121 0684 has been diverted.

Meanwhile, one of the businesses worst affected by the floods in Tinana, Emmaley's Gifts, Homewares and Coffee Shop, will be reopening on Friday morning.

Owner Andrea Hamilton said the store was inundated with more than a metre of water and required significant repairs.

"If there was anything positive to come from these floods it was the community spirit of Maryborough people," she said.
