WITH a motto such as "Go local, that’s Betta", you know Echuca Betta Home Living is serious about supporting the twin towns.
And store manager Anthony Fragiacomo said he was just as passionate about keeping community spirit alive.
“It’s really disheartening to see how many empty stores there are around town,” he said.
“Shopping out of the community means local business close, it’s as simple as that.
“Supporting and spending money locally ensures the growth of our town.”
It’s been more than 40 years since Sue and Mick Fragiacomo joined the Betta Group.
And now their son Anthony is continuing the family business.
“My family has had plenty of opportunities to sell and move on but our love of the township and for what we do has kept us here and given us the drive to keep going,” he said.
“We are humbled by our loyal customers who continue to support us.
“Shopping with us not only means the public are keeping locals in jobs, but it also allows us to support other local businesses and sponsorships within our community.”
Echuca Betta Home Living, Rochester Betta Home Living and Deniliquin Home and Leisure employ local people who can get you almost anything you need - from electrical, cooking and refrigeration to furniture, mattresses, bedding, homewares, artwork and more.
Betta is also the exclusive distributor of brands including Beko, Chiq and Artusi, and the the Betta Select Range of furniture and electrical.
“Our staff are experienced and always try to work with our locals personally to ensure the needs and wants of every client,” Anthony said.
“As a family owned store, not a commission-based store, we care about getting you what you want not what we think you need.
“We're proud of our team here.
“I'm sure many people will know Brett Vincent, Janet Murphy, Owen Egan, Ken Brownfield, Paul Welling, Nathan Boucher and our most recent addition to the team Wade Baker.”
