Woolworths Limited is creating 3,000 new retail and construction jobs across Adelaide, with a $150 million investment that will see new Woolworths, BIG W and Masters Home Improvement stores opened by the end of 2015.
Woolworths South Australian State Manager, Chris Peters will be joined by South Australian Premier Jay Weatherill MP and Member for Napier Jon Gee MP, to announce details of the development plans at a sod turning ceremony to mark the construction of the new Playford Marketplace development on Sunday, 16 November.
Chris Peters said he was thrilled Woolworths was able to create more than 3,000 construction and retail jobs during the development stage and subsequent operation of the stores.
“Woolworths Limited is looking forward to completing the construction of these new stores, which will bring Adelaide residents their first Masters store and Australia’s most modern supermarkets.”
“We’re excited to have the Premier with us to mark this investment as we start construction on the $60 million Playford Marketplace development.
“This project has had a long history and we would like to thank Renewal SA and the City of Playford for their contribution in bringing the project to fruition.
“The first stage of the new centre will include a 4,200 square metre Woolworths supermarket, stocked full of great fresh Australian produce and grocery items at everyday low prices, 18 specialty retailers and a new vibrant town centre for Playford Alive.
“More than 570 retail jobs are expected to be created as a result of the development.
