A Berwick shopowner has today defied lockdown restrictions in Victoria by opening his clothing store to the public.
Harry Hutchison says he has no choice but to open or his business will go under.
Police were on the scene when I arrived and indicated to the small business owner that he might be issued with a $9,913 fine for opening against the Chief Health Officers directions.
The owner of Harry's clothing said he does not care and will "rip up" any fine he receives.
Mr Hutchison is pleading with all small businesses in Victoria to follow suit.
"They can't fine us all", Harry told me.
