Things do go better with Coke



A ONE-and-a-half metre high blow-up Coca Cola bottle meant a lot to battling west Murwillumbah shopkeepers Ruth Fuller and her daughter-in-law Kelly.

It was a sign their newly-acquired corner store was open and a symbol of the faith they have in the future of the business.

But the blow-up bottle disappeared in a matter of seconds on Wednesday as a cheeky thief snatched it from outside the store, during trading hours.

The shop keepers are appealing for the return of the blow-up promotional tool ? given to them by Coca Cola to advertise the brand's new Zero sugar variety.

They have placed a standard-sized Zero Coke bottle outside the store with a sign: "Who took my mummy".

Ruth Fuller bought the Links Takeaway, partly obscured from the main passing traffic because it is down an embankment from the adjacent Byangum Road, in June.

On Tuesday she was given the blow-up bottle by a Coca Cola rep and decided to use it to promote the store.

"Someone came in and said how good it looked. Then, in a matter of seconds it was gone," said Kelly.
