Bring on the new supermarket

I couldn't but laugh when I read Greg Jacobs' letter in Friday's paper about Castlemaine not needing another supermarket. Obviously Greg doesn't shop in Castlemaine. vYou can go to any supermarket within the outer area and see any number of residents in the MASC local at Maryborough, Bendigo, Kangaroo Flat, Epsom and even Kyneton doing their shop. Why? Because even with fuel costs it's cheaper shopping elsewhere. And if they can't get to those other supermarkets for their shop, they are using home deliveries from Woolworths or Coles.
