Bi-lo A Bi-lo was opened in Old Bar in 2006. It has opened job opportunities for many people, especially young adults, because it is within walking distance of everything. There was a concern for traffic congestion, parking issues and questions over the appropriateness of the development given its size on relation to its village location. The Council’s planning committee approved the development on a vote of five to four.

Bi-lo has since been a success and more convenient to Old Bar’s residents. Instead of driving in Taree to do the weekly shopping or stressing over not having enough ingredients for dinner, you can walk to Bi-lo and not have to drive all the way into Taree for some flour.
