Baker appliance repair business,bakers shop in Canberra, shuts down
The owners of Baker Appliance Repair, in the ACT’s northern capital Canberra, have closed down the business.
The business, which was established in 2013, is one of only two in the state, with the other being a hardware repair shop in the city.
Owner David Henson said the decision to close down was because the business was “not viable for us at this stage”.
“We’re not getting the business, and we’ve just got to find another one,” he said.
“The business has a lot of potential to grow and it’s not something that we’re looking to do now.”
Mr Henson has since moved to a new business, where he will be looking to expand.
He said while he hoped the closure would help to “rebuild some confidence” in the business’s future, he was unsure whether the business would survive in the future.
“I think if it goes, it’ll be because of a lack of supply, but we’ll see,” he told news.com:au.
“We’ve had some good luck in the past and we’d love to do more, but I don’t know what’s going to happen.”
It’s not an easy place to work.
It’s just not sustainable.
“Mr Brattan said the closure was “a bit of a shock”.”
It seems like the business is doing alright, and the customers have been really nice, but they’re definitely not doing as well as they used to,” he added.”
And I guess it’s just a matter of the business going through a difficult period.
“The business is open 24 hours, seven days a week.
