The team from Mitchell Tyres & More has been servicing the Canberra
region for the past fifteen years, from Pats Tyres, to Pats Tyres & More,
and now Mitchell Tyres & More. The boys at Marko Body Repairs (Est 1982)
and Tyres and More have joined forces to redesign and further improve the
Mega store in Mitchell. The improved store now boasts a revamp fit out and
waiting facilities, specialised equipment, wide range of tyres and wheels, brake
and safety checks, suspension, general vehicle and airconditioning servicing,
batteries, female friendly accreditation and much more.
Barry Fowler formerly from Beaurepaires in Braddon with over thirty
years experience now leads the team by managing the Mitchell store. His
comprehensive knowledge of all tyre brands and quality, with his professional
mechanical qualifications and experience, together with his great customer
service, makes Barry one of Australia's leading tyre experts.
Mitchell Tyres & More boast an alliance with Yokohama Tyre Australia (Est
1976), providing us with the market leader for both on and off road tyres.
Yokohama is a world leader for performance, safety and endurance. We are
proud to announce that Mitchell Tyres & More is able to bring to the general
public high quality tyres at a low price. Furthermore Yokohama makes the
chosing of tyres easy, with everyday terms used in describing tyre options like
"everyday tyres", "safe tyres", "quiet tyres", "performance tyres" and so on.
In addition there is finally a tyre store on the Gungahlin side that accommodates
all vehicles, passenger cars, performance cars, workman utilities, all 4WD's,
trucks, bobcats and much more.
Come and put us to the test this Saturday the 24th of September from 8.00am
to 4.00pm during our September sale.

"The National Film and
Sound Archive's poster collec-
tion captures the variety and
vitality of film and music
festivals in Australia's capital
cities and regional centres,"
"This is just a sub-section of
it."Ms Phillips saw it as a way
of combining both film and
sound in a dynamic way.
"The skill of the designer is
in how they create an eye
catching image that interprets
the festival it is promoting. It
needs to leap out from all the
surrounding advertising and
information we are bombarded
with daily," Ms Phillips said.
"We focused on choosing

she said was a very interesting
man. "Our sound curator re-

off an email," Ms Phillips said.

TWO new booklets that provide guid-
ance on how businesses can better
meet the needs of older employees and
customers have been released by
Minister for Ageing Joy Burch.
The development of the business
guides was a commitment of the ACT
Office for Ageing within the ACT
Strategic Plan for Positive Ageing
2010-14. The guides aim to assist the
business sector to be more accessible
and inclusive of seniors, as both
customers and employees.
The Guide to Older Customers
provides useful hints on customer
service principles and on business
practices and processes for older
The Guide to Mature Age Workers
provides information on the benefits of
employing older workers, with tips on
recruitment, retention and training, and
information on the Commonwealth
Government's Experience Plus
Among the issues raised by people
who participated in community consul-
tation sessions for the ACT Strategic
Plan for Positive Ageing were an
ageist attitude experienced when
engaging with the business sector, and
that age discrimination existed when
applying for jobs.
''Employers need to be mindful that
mature workers are valuable assets that
should be retained for as long as
possible, and indeed, should be
actively recruited to fill labour needs,''
Ms Burch said. ''These are people with
a lifetime of experience and a signifi-
cant skill set, both in terms of people
skills and technical expertise.''
