Important Forum For Curtis Road Small Business


Member for Light, Tony Piccolo discusses the upcoming forum with Sav, owner of the La Sapori Italian Restaurant at the Playford Town centre.


A small business forum will be held at the end of the month at the Stretton Centre to help small businesses in Munno Para and Munno Para West grow their customer base.

The forum is been arranged and promoted by the Member for Light, Mr Tony Piccolo.

Mr Piccolo said he decided to arrange the forum following discussions he has had with small business owners in the area.

“Over the past few months, I’ve met a number of small business owners in the ‘Curtis Road Business Precinct’ (including the Playford Town Centre) to gain a better understanding of the needs of the community in the southern part of the electorate*,” Mr Piccolo said.

“Some small business owners have said they are struggling to build their customer base due to being a part of a new business precinct.

“The forum will give small businesses in the area an opportunity to raise any issues they may have, but also look at ways of working together to promote the precinct as a whole.

“The Stretton Centre is the ideal location to host the forum as it is well placed to provide advice and services to small businesses assisting them to succeed and create new jobs.

“The forum is also open to home-based businesses in the area, particularly those who may wish to take their business to the next level.

“The Stretton Centre offers home-based businesses access to range of advisory services to assist them understand what is required to grow their business.

“It is disappointing that some businesses have already closed down in the precinct.

“New shopping precincts face many challenges and barriers while establishing themselves in the marketplace, so the forum will discuss the various options open to them.

“One of things that will be discussed is whether it is worthwhile to establish an ongoing forum or association for businesses in the precinct,” he said.

The forum will be held on Tuesday 30 January 2018 at 7pm at the Stretton Centre, 307 Peachey Road, Munno Para. Business Owners planning to attend should register their interest online at or via phone on 8522 2878.


*Munno Para will be part of the Light Electorate for the 2018 State Election.
