SPUDSHED will open its Butler store this month.

The Galati family will open its 12th farmers market at Home Consortium on the corner of Butler Boulevard and Marmion Avenue.

It will be handing out free spuds to customers from 9am on May 16.

There is already a store in Wangara and another is expected to open in Joondalup’s Home Consortium this year.

The former Masters site in Butler already has an Amart Furniture on site and Spotlight craft store confirmed as a tenant.

There have also been rumours that Australia Post could take up another tenancy, but the company is yet to confirm whether it plans to do so.

“As Butler grows, we continue to monitor the needs of the local community, which is currently served by the Butler Community Postal Agency at Shop 11, 6 Kingsbridge Boulevard,” spokesman John Pyrros said.

“A number of factors are considered when determining whether new postal services are required in an area, including the location and viability of existing outlets in the vicinity, population, demographics and the likely volume of business.”

Mr Pyrros said the electric delivery vehicle pilot program in Butler had been received by staff and the community, and Australia Post planned to roll out more vehicles and electric bicycles by the end of the year.
