Grocery store opens doors

FRASER Coast shoppers are being offered “fantastic specials” to celebrate the opening of Maryborough’s newest grocery store.

FoodWorks, which opened its doors in the revamped Maryborough Central Plaza yesterday, will offer customers who spend $50 in-store from today to Monday a $5 discount voucher if they spend more than $50.

Store manager Chris Brown said customers would also save with a flexible fuel offer.

“We will have our 10 cents per litre reverse fuel opening offer for the first six weeks.

“Customers buy their fuel anywhere they like, bring in the receipt and then claim the value of 10 centres per litre of their fuel purchase off their grocery bill if they spend over $30 in store,” he said.

“This offer is great because customers can shop around for the cheapest fuel available and then get the discount on top of that.”

Mr Brown said FoodWorks stocked about 15,000 brands with a strong focus on “seasonal produce and high-quality market specials”.

“We would love to get feedback from our customers on what products they would like to see in store,” he said.

The supermarket was formerly Coles, which was sold by Wesfarmers to FoodWorks earlier this year and refitted this week.
