Popular Lismore corner store closes its doors
A BUSY little corner store in East Lismore has shut its doors.
Mine & Gary's Fiveways, known locally as "the fiveways” or simply "Gary's”, put a sign on its windows this week to tell customers the news.
"Our shop will be closed down on September 4,” the sign read.
"We highly appreciate your long-standing support. George and Betty.”
The building, on a busy Wyrallah Rd intersection near Dibbs St, Harmong Ave and Murray St, has been on the market since March this year.
It was originally listed for sale for $339,000, but is now listed for $319,000.
Ray White agent Mark Harley told The Northern Star in March that the 436sqm property had a residence attached and was an ideal entry-point to a highly desirable area.
"We are selling this as a residential dwelling as it has a residential zoning,” he said.
"The property is for sale as a freehold only, the business itself is not for sale.”
Mr Harley said the property had two bedrooms, a spacious open shop-front, commercial kitchen and partly covered drive-through driveway.
He said it was an excellent opportunity for an owner-operator to conduct a home business, coffee shop or to continue with the existing use, subject to necessary council approvals.
