KINGSCLIFF'S newsagencies at Marine Parade and the Kingscliff Shopping Village in Pearl Street have new owners.

Partners in life and business Linda Clarke and Greg Jackwitz recently bought the two businesses and are busy diversifying and improving the newsagencies.

Greg said the couple wanted to turn the businesses into one-stop-shops for all community news, stationary and gift requirements.

They expect the Kingscliff area to grow in the foreseeable future and hoped the businesses could take advantage of this.

Greg and Linda haven't managed newsagencies before, with Greg previously working in the cleaning industry, in Nauru as a security expert and at the defunct Ansett airline.

Linda has spent most of her career as a cleaning industry executive and both intended to semi-retire before coming to Kingscliff and buying the two newsagencies.

"We bought a unit in Kingscliff last April and loved the area so much we thought buying the agencies was a perfect fit," Greg said.

Locals have made them feel really welcome and Greg and Linda intend on becoming really involved in the community.

Although the couple were avid Queenslanders before they arrived, they are totally committed to Kingscliff and its residents, Greg said.

Kingscliff offered Greg and Linda's families the perfect location for holidays and the couple certainly wouldn't be leaving the area any time soon.
