A LOCAL business received two awards at the Tasmanian Newsagent of the Year Awards last week. The New Norfolk Newsagent was named the best home delivery agent in the southern region and in Tasmania overall.
Presenting the awards, Deputy Premier Lara Giddings said newsagents were important for our communities and a valuable contributor to our economy. “Newsagents in Tasmania are important small businesses that employ 500 people and have an annual turnover of $100 million,” Ms Giddings said.
Leigh and Pauline Martin have operated the New Norfolk Newsagency for about 30 years and the business is now managed by their son Matthew.
