TOWN & Country Solar has relocated
into a more central location in
Gawler's main street to provide
customers with a more hands-on
The new shop front opened earlier
this month and will provide customers
with quality solar solutions at
competitive prices with local backing
Town & Country Solar director Mick
Flak said the new location allows
customers to see which products
work best for their situation.
"We have observed a need for
our customers to have a hands-
on interaction to the products and
services we have to offer and a
supporting after-market service also,"
"Almost all solar companies work
as online businesses, we wanted to
be different and offer the full service
backing and support."
Mick has been a practising electrical
contractor for over 13 years, with a
grass-roots background in the solar
"In the very early days we offered
our services as contractors who
would install electrical and solar
power systems for others, however
we soon realised we had so much
more to offer the marketplace, we
began by offering only the highest-
quality proven solar products the
market has to offer to our customers,"
"This practice has set us aside from
our competitors as we still continue
with the same principles today.
"Quality products, backed by
Australian warranties, 100 per cent
locally owned and operated with a
commitment for ongoing support.
"And no salespeople...100 per cent
facts on how to invest your money
into a quality solar power system."
The main services the business
currently offers include residential and
commercial solar power systems,
stand-alone power systems and
hybrid and battery storage options.
Town & Country Solar is now
located at 55a Murray Street, Gawler
and is open Monday to Friday from
9am to 5pm.

7 Golden Rules of Successful
Most business operators would agree
they would like to increase their earnings,
legitimately minimise their taxes and thereby
maximise their after tax profits. But often the
best tradespeople or technicians don't run very
Common failings we have observed include:
Small business owners can be very busy and
they win more and more work, but their ever
increasing busyness does not translate into
increased profits. Why? Usually because they
have neglected the need to effectively manage
their business processes (so customer invoices
don't get sent out promptly or outstanding
debtors don't get followed up promptly, for
example). Or they over employ staff but don't
have systems in place to monitor the productivity
of their workers, so the workers are comfortable
while the boss is stressed and unprofitable!
We have studied a number of our most
successful business operators and identified 7
golden rules of successful businesses. Some
of these rules are incredibly basic but so many
business owners never put them into practice!
These principles are attainable by any business
owner regardless of their size or industry.
On Monday 2 June we're holding a FREE
information session exploring the habits.

Locals recognised for quality ser vice
MEMBERS of the community
who have shown excellence in
the service they provide were
honoured on Monday night.
As part of the Rotary Club of
Gawler's Quality of Service Awards,
a local business, an employee, a vol-
unteer and a junior volunteer were
each formally recognised at a pre-
Qualified florist Kirsty Zeuner has
worked at the Gawler Flower Gal-
lery for three years and was named
'best local employee', for her cheer-
ful and friendly nature, and willing-
ness to help others.
"I was excited; I didn't expect to
win it," she said.
"I just enjoy dealing with custom-
ers and giving them good service
and, I guess, some other people
think the same, that I do give them
good customer service."
The award for 'best local business'
went to Gawler Mensland owners
Greg and Judy Matz.
Having been in Murray Street
for 20 years, Greg and Judy, along
with their staff, take pride in not
only selling the latest fashions, but
also giving customers old-fashioned
"We greet the customer when they
come into the store and ask them if
there is anything we can help them
with, and if there's something they
can't see, they can ask us and we will
be able to find it for them,"
Mr Matz said.
"We get a lot of people
who...are actually taken aback
that we've got three people
here eager to help them."
Winning the award for 'best
local volunteer' was Gawler
Gymnastics Club senior coach
Mrs Lobegeiger has been a gym-
nastics club member for 30 years
and has coached for the past 20.
Her club roles include adminis-
tration, publicity, and setting and
clearing up after each session.
The Rotary's final award, for 'best
local junior volunteer', went to Bri-
ony Rowell from the Gawler Hock-
ey Club and Shea-Oak Log Country
Last season, Briony coached the
Gawler Hockey Club's A grade
women's and under 18 sides, and, as
a 19-year-old, she was less than half
the age of many of the players.
She also umpired junior hockey
and won the Barossa Valley Hockey
Association's Best and Fairest Award
for A grade women.
Briony has been a CFS member
for over a year and, so far, has at-
tended more than 20 incidents, in-
cluding the major fires at Eden Val-
ley and Bangor earlier this year.
The Gawler Rotary Club's Quality
of Service Awards are run annually,
with nominations made by the pub-
lic before a panel of Rotary judges
select the winners.
