Bernie closes the bonnet
AFTER nearly 40 years in the motor trade, prominent Tweed citizen and Murwillumbah businessman Bernie Quinn today shuts up shop.
Mr Quinn, the 2001 Tweed citizen of the year, 2005 Tweed businessperson of the year and President of the Tweed River Jockey Club for over three decades, is closing his South Murwillumbah used car showroom.
He intends to spend more time on his Mooball farm but will maintain his racing and community interests.
"I'll miss a lot friendships and loyal people," said the one-time butcher turned highly-successful car salesman who has sold vehicles to three generations of local families.
"I've had people I've sold a car to, then sold to their kids, then their kids," he said.
