Spotlight advertises for employees at new Bay shop

HERVEY Bay will soon be home to homemaker super store Spotlight, with jobs being advertised on seek.com.au for a store manager and team leaders for the new outlet, ending months of speculation about whether the store would be opening.

The Chronicle contacted Stockland Hervey Bay's manager Paul Kelsey on Sunday, but he declined to comment on whether Spotlight would open as part of the shopping centre's extensive development.

It is widely believed the store will open in the building recently vacated by Sam's Warehouse at Stockland Shopping Centre.

The online job advertisement reads: "The newest addition to our network, Hervey Bay is seeking a passionate and experienced store manager/team leaders to lead the store team from day one."

It is unclear how many jobs will be available at the new outlet, but the new store represents yet another chance for employment for Fraser Coast people on top of other businesses opening at Stockland last month and job opportunities at St Stephen's Hospital in Hervey Bay, which is soon to open.

Applications for the new positions will close on September 6.

When news broke in early July that Hervey Bay was likely to get a Spotlight outlet, it was met with both delight and scepticism, with many readers sharing their views on the Chronicle's Facebook page.

Many were unable to believe that, after many years of rumours, it was finally happening.

But now it is certain the super store is headed our way.

It sells everything from bedding, bath products, homewares, furniture, kitchen appliances and tableware, curtains and blinds, sewing equipment, craft and hobbies supplies and fabrics and yarn.
