Business Comes & Goes – K-Katanning
This Business Comes and Goes K-Katanning page is the third of six pages listing the various businesses that have operated in Katanning since the first settlement of the region. Many enterprising people set up business in a vast array of businesses, starting with the Piesse Brothers, Frederick, and Charles. That enterprising spirit continues today as Katanning continues to thrive.
The arrival of the Great Southern Railway enabled local businesses to provide a greater range of goods and services faster than they had been able to before its arrival. This allowed the Katanning business sector to grow in leaps and bounds, particularly in the early 1900’s.
Sadly though something that didn’t exist back in those early days, the internet, is starting to have a negative effect on our business community.
