Local shoppers in Frankston can now experience a fresh new-look supermarket with the completion of the Woolworths Karingal Hub store renewal. Over twenty new jobs have been created in the supermarket to cope with the additional customers due to the closure last year of the other Woolworths store in the Hub, which was part of the shopping centre’s major redevelopment plans.
Amongst the convenient new features, customers can expect an extensive fresh fruit and vegetable section, with certified organic products, as well as a range of fresh fish and seafood and a new look continental style deli. The renewed store now also features new self-scanning checkouts and the added convenience of a store-to-boot service for those customers who order their groceries online.
Woolworths Karingal Hub store manager Cam Smith said “We’re pleased to be able to offer a convenient, refreshed store for our local customers that makes grocery shopping easy for everyone and we look forward to showcasing our new look store to local shoppers. Understanding what the local community needs is important to us, so to make collecting groceries that much easier, we are offering designated Pick-Up Drive-Thru bays whereby a team member will bring out the grocery order directly to the car”.
The new look store now offers a full production bakery featuring artisan bread loaves and a new range of premium stone-baked breads and made to order cakes for any special occasion, as well as freshly baked flat bread, perfect for burritos, wraps or pizza bases. The store also supports local suppliers like Pure Peninsula Honey, based in Moorooduc. Pure Peninsula’s apiarist John Winkels has been producing honey for the past 30 years and a range of their honey can be found in all Woolworths stores across the Mornington Peninsula.
The new look store trades 7am to 10pm seven days and is located at the post office end of the Karingal Hub shopping centre, 330 Cranbourne Rd, Frankston.
