“This is my 31st year with the business, but I grew up in Glenroy. I’ve seen Glenroy really change from when I was living here as a kid to what it is now.
When I first started I used to sell car and aeroplane models as well as footy gear. The kids that came in, they were only little tackers, 5 or 6 years old, those guys have now got their own kids. They bring in their sons and say ‘Meet Tony – he used to sell me my footy boots back in the day’.”
