Ipswich's go to takeaway a fan of City Pride
THE Old Miners Diner has been the go to take away for Ipswich residents and visitors alike for the past nine years.
Co-owner Rebekah McCrindle said the diner joined the City Pride campaign because of the support they have received from the Ipswich community.
"Anything that's local we try to support," she said.
"If people know local businesses they'll shop there I think.
"The feedback we've received from the campaign has been great."
Mrs McCrindle said the diner's highway location, long opening hours as well as recent infrastructure in the surrounding area had helped the store succeed.
"We only live around the corner so we're able to put in big hours," Mrs McCrindle said.
"We get a lot of local support, we're open seven days a week from 5am every day.
"It's crazy, it's been really busy.
"We're flat out."
The business owner said City Pride was a good initiative as it included larger shopping centres and smaller businesses and let anyone take part.
"It's a good idea, I hope a bit of pride comes back into Ipswich, we have a lot of shops here," she said.
"People don't have to go to Indooroopilly or major shopping centres because we have everything here.
"We have a lot of regulars, it's that rapport you get with your customers that I love about it."
The City Pride competition entry forms can be picked up from The Old Miners Diner at 15 Brisbane Rd, Ebbw Vale until August 31.
