Business commendations

Two Southbank businesses received bronze commendations from the Lord Mayor last month, celebrating 10 years of operation in the City of Melbourne.

Operators of Southgate’s Aqua Décor and AquaJ and American Rag both received the award as a reward of longevity from Lord Mayor Robert Doyle.

Cr Doyle said the businesses thoroughly deserved the praise that came with his commendations.

“These small businesses have stood the test of time. From the remarkable family dynasty emerging from Benjamin & Co Jewellers established in 1880, through to businesses celebrating five years of operation, these are the tales of a city shaped by the many

small business that evolved as Melbourne grew,” Cr Doyle explained.

“Their story of innovation, tenacity and commitment are highlighted through a special photo exhibit, showcasing the historical and current importance of small business in Melbourne through a series of fun and compelling images,” he added.

Southgate’s Jo Gartner said the centre was honoured to have two of its longest serving tenants recognised for their contributions to Southgate and to the city.

“It’s a wonderful endorsement for both these traders and Southgate, given the centre has been a key dining and shopping destination in Melbourne for over 20 years,” Ms Gartner said.
