Tuesday, 26 April 2016: Residents of Mascot will see the launch of one of Australia’s most modern supermarkets when Woolworths opens the doors of its new store on Church Avenue on Wednesday.
The new 3,200 square metre store is the result of a $6.2 million investment and will officially open on Wednesday, 27 April providing customers with fresh fruit & vegetables, inspiring meal ideas, a wide choice of healthy options and a huge range at great prices.
Woolworths Mascot Store Manager, Anil Prakash, said 140 people would be employed at the store creating employment opportunities for the local area.
