GALLERY: Business owners up bright and early

THE cool breeze on Wednesday morning didn’t stop Maroochydore business owners from getting to Solbar for an early cup of coffee.

The Maroochydore Chamber of Commerce event saw local business people catch up over a cuppa from 7am at one of Ocean St’s favourite venues.

For many it would have been the first social get-together since the wildly successful Ocean St World Festival on March 27.

With the recent closure of the Farmer’s Quarter at the Big Top Shopping Centre, just round the corner and inside the mall, there was likely lots to talk about.
