While having been around for almost forever, Macka’s News has consistently enjoyed stable business from Griffith and the surrounds, with a loyal, long term and committed clientele. The secret of Macka’s success has been its simple yet effective business model: Freshly printed Newspapers, Magazines, Lotto tickets, lollies, Smokes and friendly customer service.
You do not need endless qualifications but you do need to be ready to serve and assist Macka’s frequent customers with a smile.
