Sandpiper remains closed

SANDPIPER Café will remain closed over the Christmas period. 

When Echo News went to press on Wednesday, both café and Midland Gate Shopping Centre spokespeople said discussions were ongoing.

The closure of the café on December 4, Sandpiper answers to come soon (Echo News, December 8), triggered an outcry of community support.

Centre management forced the closure over issues of unpaid rent. 

In the 24hr  before the closure, more than 400 people signed a 10-page petition in support of the small business.

Midland Gate Shopping Centre  manager Alison Broadbent said both parties were working towards a solution.

“We’re working with the team at Sandpiper Café as they assess options for reopening at Midland Gate – due to the nature of the discussions we cannot provide any more detail at this stage,” she said.

  1. I interpret that as “Midland Gate has made demands, and Sandpiper is considering them”.

    Meanwhile I imagine Midland Gate is looking for alternatives, this is taking too long to resolve.
