Spud King Tony Galati has given his most promising indication yet that Broome could be the destination for a new Spudshed supermarket. The grocery tycoon paid a visit to Broome earlier this month, to meet with key stakeholders at the Mangrove Hotel to discuss plans for the reopening of the only abattoir in the North West. While visiting, Mr Galati showed promise he could have his sights set on Broome as a potential location for a new Spudshed grocery story and said he was interested in supporting the town with an offering. “Definitely, show me a site,” he said. “We have a logistics division now that can service the whole State, so when I can go to the fresh produce markets at Canning Vale and have the Broome truck dispatched thereafter. “We would love to be a grower and a retailer supporting jobs in the Kimberley.” It comes as Mr Galati will put arguably the State’s most famous pair of eyebrows and his signature look on the line to raise money for Telethon this weekend. The eyebrow king is appealing to the public to help raise $500,000 for the sick children of WA, which if achieved, will see Mr Galati’s iconic brows harvested with the help of some celebrity guests. Talks have been circling the caterpillars could meet their maker at the hands of Nat Fyfe or Nic Naitanui. Mr Galati said it was beginning to look like WA wanted the eyebrows to stay. “The amount of comments I’ve had with people worried for what I will look like is humbling,” he said. “I’m just a farmer who doesn’t see a mirror in the daylight so when I was approached there was only ever going to be a yes to Telethon.” Due to COVID-19 lock downs, Telethon were unable to line up as many celebrity guests as previous years, so Mr Galati decided he would personally ensure West Australians had some fun this year. Mr Galati said he had been part of the Telethon program for four years. “We have a strong focus on our Spudathon program which is where we give away 1Kg bag of potatoes for a gold coin donation,” he said. “I am incredibly grateful for being in a position to help to support charities personally and through the Spudshed stores and it is important for Telethon to continue supporting the quality of life of these families.” The 2021 Telethon weekend kicks off tomorrow, broadcast live from Crown Perth and Optus Stadium over 26 hours.
