As the owner of The Bodhi Tree bookstore cafe in Mt Hawthorn, I was concerned about losing power over the recent long weekend due to works being carried out by Western Power.
This would have been a terrible disappointment to our customers and a substantial loss of income for the business.
When I phoned Western Power to discuss the situation, I was delighted to be offered genuine and friendly assistance.
Far from discounting my concerns, staff generously provided a generator that would enable the entire business to continue operating at full capacity.
On the day, everything was handled in such an efficient manner that our customers and staff were barely aware of the issue.
For this, on behalf of myself, our customers, staff and small business in general, I would like to thank Western Power for their support of independent retailers ” and for proving that big business does care about the welfare of small business.
