TOUKLEY NSW Australia . Starting a business in Toukley would require some smart thinking.
Wandering around its CBD you will discover the sad picture of past businesses that have gone bust . This is mainly due to the ever increasing powers of the shopping malls, however, this is not about some magical cure for their setbacks, but the reason the Toukley Chamber Of Commerce decided not to use a Toukley venue such as their RSL or Bowling club for their annual event, thus depriving possibly one of the two major businesses in town of a good earner.
Hardly like keeping it in the family when it was decided that my local club, The Halekulani Bowling Club, Which is located several klms away from Toukley was chosen to host the event, or were there some overwhelming fiscal anomalies between the different clubs grog prices, I'll stick my neck out and say this is the case.
Traveling around to the five nearest clubs surrounding the Halekulani Bowling Club in Budgewoi, the Bar drinks of my choice and my nearest and dearest, at the Halekulani Bowling club, were priced $2-20 less per round than any other club. I cannot supply the reason for this, however, If I stop by the club three times per week and order four double rounds of drinks for the wife and myself, within one year I will have saved around $1,372-00 by not patronising the other clubs. 'Makes sense doesn't it'. Just a thought.
