Ceremonial start to Woolies development

ABOUT 150 people will be employed in the building of New Norfolk's new Woolworths Supermarket, development manager James Weight said last Thursday at the turning of the first sod on the development site. Mr Weight said New Norfolk shoppers could look forward to a modern, convenient supermarket.

“We are tremendously excited to officially mark the commencement of work on this modern new development after two years of planning,”
Mr Weight said. The development will include a brand new 3200sqm Woolworths store and parking for more than 200 cars.

"The new development will create more than 150 jobs during the construction period with a further 120 local
jobs at the Woolworths supermarket once the development is completed. We are pleased to be supporting local construction jobs with the appointment of Macquarie Builders as the lead contractor for the project,” he said.

With construction subject to weather and other variables the new New Norfolk store is expected to open in mid-2015.
