BANKSIA Grove’s third supermarket opens tomorrow, creating 115 jobs for the region.

The Woolworths store will have an opening ceremony on November 15, where Banksia Grove and Tapping primary schools will receive $1000 gift cards to help with future fundraising and school events.

“Customers can look forward to a modern and contemporary shopping experience,” store manager Craig Higgs said.

“With 100 per cent of our fresh meat and 96 per cent of fresh fruit and vegetables sourced from Australia, the store has been designed to also showcase the wonderful seasonality of our produce.”

Features include a pick up service, bakery, fruit and vegetable department, meat, deli and seafood as well as a dedicated international range.

Throughout launch day, the store will have a selection of sampling stations and giveaways, as well as a Peppa Pig meet and greets about 10am, 11am and noon.

On Saturday the centre on the corner of Joseph Banks Boulevard and Ghostgum Boulevard will also have free face painting and kids entertainment from 9am to 12.30pm.

The suburb already has Coles and Aldi supermarkets.
