QT Facebook readers say: Build it, they will come

WE asked our Facebook friends ... WHAT are the public's thoughts on the shopping centre to be built on Blackstone Rd. Will you use it?

  • If you build it, they will come! Aaron Maileman Maile
  • Depends what's there and how it's set out. Riverlink is stupid. Robyn Hardiker
  • It's a Coles, and don't be lazy, go to big w or ippy. Or support your local smaller shops not the big chains. Rob Maddox
  • It's sad for the small business on Grange Rd. Always friendly and helpful. It will put him out of business. Don't think it's needed. Jodie Gibson
  • No, it's a waste of time. Do something good with the land, plenty of other shops around without building another. Jason Pedley
  • Well hopefully it will be a better place to shop than Riverlink. That place is getting worse. Lorraine Skewes
  • Coz we need more supermarkets.... such a shortage within a few kilometre radius. Melanie Carroll-Boyle
  • MORE JOBS YAY! I will definitely go there! Katelyn Lewis
  • With online shopping increasing would think we have enough local suburban shops. Cherie Christine
  • Not sure might walk in there once. So many shops and seems sometimes people don't have anything else to do but to shop and go to shops. Debbie Mac
  • OMG, yes! It is right down the road, so convenient Kayleigh Sky-anne Anderson
  • I am establishing the Qld Motorsport Museum in the CBD (Ipswich City Mall), so my view is we don't need another shopping centre to draw people away from the CBD. Ian Bone
  • Ipswich needs a WESTFIELD shopping centre or something like Indro. Riverlink isn't all that great. Shay Chapman
  • I really think the site should have been reserved for another secondary school. Kayleen Loudon Condrick
  • And there is a shopping centre application on a block of land in Naomi Street too. Gary Wood-MacIver
