Though I could be wrong, I think this is the only fully operational restaurant in Lismore’s CBD. You can get takeaway from a few different places, but Yings Chinese & Thai seems to be the only restaurant offering dine-in.
So last night, we did our best to support a local business by having a meal there. It was very tasty, super cheap, and very busy.
Three months after the floods, only a handful of shops have returned.
There was a story last night on the local TV news about Big W reopening next Thursday. Bunnings has a temporary outdoor store, and everyone’s hoping they’ll re-open soon. When you’re doing a home renovation, Bunnings comes in pretty handy. The closest Bunnings is about a 30-minute drive away in Ballina. There’s a temporary store also at Woolworths Central. Other stores will reopen next month, the report told us, though it’s obvious it will take a long time for things to return to normal.
