The popular local cafe ‘Dimboola Store’ is to remain open.

It was announced this morning that new owner Linda Millane will continue running the business, with help from daughter Tori Lehmann who will be managing it.

Tori has been working at ‘Dimboola Store’ as the Front of House manager, the head barista, roster and purchasing manager and has been involved in training all new staff.

Originally today was to be the last day of trading for the business after it was made known in May that it had been put on the market by owners John and Alexandra O’Halloran, and last week its imminent closure was announced, but this morning locals woke to the welcome news that a new owner had been found.
