Poll: Residents keen to have JB Hifi in town

IF Gladstone residents got to choose, JB Hifi would be one of the stores coming to Gladstone if the proposed bulky goods commercial precinct came to fruition.

Walker Group has applied to Gladstone Regional Council to rezone 15.2 ha of residential land along Kirkwood Rd, opposite the existing Kirkwood Woolworths.

The land would be used for a massive commercial shopping centre precinct that could attract retailers such as Super Amart and JB Hifi.

In a poll running on The Observer's website, respondents have so far voted for JB Hifi as the store they'd most like to see.

The store has received 42% of votes, followed by Super Amart with 32%.

The Good Guys are sitting on 10%, followed by 'another hardware store' on 7%.
