BORDER soccer great Scott Kidd is selling his Coffee Club franchise with an eye to running for Albury council.
Mr Kidd has contemplated a tilt at council over the last few elections, but says he did not think it would be possible to oversee the cafe and be a councillor.
"If I do do this I want to give it my very best shot," he said.
"I see it as an opportunity to make Albury a better place, there's no use sitting and whinging and crying unless you're willing to have a go."
Mr Kidd said his family had been involved in council and he saw the role as an opportunity to expand on the community service he has provided through soccer coaching since he was a teenager.
The council poll is scheduled for next September with Mr Kidd willing to stand on a ticket or lead his own.
Mr Kidd has continued to work a full-time job while owning The Coffee Club franchise.
"I think turning 50 probably makes you look at where you might want to be in 10 years," he said.
The Coffee Club, which faces QEII Square and adjoins City Walk arcade, is being sold for $355,000.
It has an annual turnover of $1.15 million and weekly rental of $3300.
Mr Kidd said there had "been a couple of nibbles" in the six weeks it had been on the market.
Meanwhile, Cycle Station Albury has announced it has bought the former Oke's Toy Warehouse premises in Wilson Street.
It will continue to trade at its showroom and workshop in Young Street near the Albury railway station but may use the old toy shop as a secondary bike store or for hospitality.
There is also movement at Lavington Square with QBD Books now trading at the shopping centre.
