Retravision has just increased the size of its shop, while Harvey Norman has relocated to a $6 million-plus store that is also to include a Spotlight store, BC the Body Club gym and a coffee shop.

According to Harvey Norman, Bunbury furniture proprietor Dean Smith, the move to new premises was important because it brought all parts of the store under the one roof.

The new store will be more than double the size of the old store.

Mr Smith said Harvey Norman saw great potential in Bunbury.

“Bunbury’s no longer a small country town,” he said.

“The population has the potential to increase two-fold in the next ten years. We could get up to 60,000

people in that time.

“The lifestyle is just fantastic. Once people see what they can do down here it will be incredible.

“It makes no sense for people to have to go to Perth. It is better that they shop here,” Mr Smith said.

Mr Smith said about thirty local people were employed in the store.
