Welcome to the Retail Hot Spot!

The “Retail Hot Spot” is a central connection portal for all retail and hospitality businesses in the Burnie CBD and beyond. Coordinated and maintained by Business Northwest it offers anyone in the retail or hospitality business an opportunity to connect with each other, keep up to date with industry specific and general business information. As a natural progression to Business Northwest’s focus on supporting business in Burnie and the Northwest coast in general, we will be dedicating this page to presenting innovative ideas, opportunities for networking and connection for our retail and hospitality businesses. Information will have a retail and hospitality focus and will be updated on a regular basis.

General Public Meeting

Anti-Social behaviour in Burnie CBD

Business Northwest convened a meeting with a number of CBD based traders and interested parties to discuss the concerns by business about increasing concersn about the anti social and aggressive behaviour in the Burnie CBD. We listened to a range of concerns and discussed possible opportunities to help alleviate some of the issues raised. The meeting was attended by several councilors and excutive staff from the Burnie City Council and Senior Sergeant Stewart Williams from the Burnie Police. Items raised have been documented and are available to view here. In the coming weeks, we will be convening a smaller working party to look at a proactive plan to manage the situation both in the short and long term.

If you would like to be part of this working party, please get in touch with us by email : social@businessnw.com.au

Got any good ideas?

As we move into generating some hopefully useful content in this space for retailers and hospitality businesses, we want to make sure we are delivering content you find useful for yor business. If you’d like to see anything specific, or you have some ideas about what we can do on this page- feel free to get in touch by email on social@businessnw.com.au

We are a small group of volunteers that drive the programs and activities within Business Northwest. All of us have our own Businesses along the coast, so we have limited resources at times to get things done. If you would like to volunteer some time to help out with any of the activities we are doing- get in touch, via email on social@businessnw.com.au
