Monday, 23 March 2014: Residents of Seaford Meadows will see the opening of one of Australia’s most modern supermarket concepts on Wednesday when Woolworths opens the doors of its new store on the corner of Grand Boulevard and Prow Drive.
The new $4 million store will open at 6pm on Tuesday, 25 March and will provide customers with fresh Australian produce, inspiring meal ideas, a wide choice of healthy options and a huge range of grocery items at great every day low prices.
Woolworths Seaford Meadows Store Manager, Scott Bartlett, said 88 people would be employed at the store, with new jobs for local people.
“We are proud that the opening of the new Woolworths sees us welcoming so many new people to the company from the Seaford Meadows area.”
“Our aim is to connect customers directly with our local fresh producers. With 100 per cent of fresh meat and 96 per cent of fresh fruit and veg sourced from Australia our store will highlight the wonderful seasonality of produce along with tips for the best uses for products,” he said.
The new store, at 2,420 square metres, will include a pizza bar creating freshly made pizza to order, combined delicatessen and seafood departments and a full production bakery providing fresh bread daily. The store will also include a focus on wellness with Woolworths’ Macro range that includes a number of free range, free from and organic choices.
