SPAR Australia welcomed the addition of another new store to their family on January 30, with the grand opening of SPAR Wilton in south-west Sydney.
The store is run by retail veterans Paul and Renè Randall, and their children Aidan and Maliyah. Paul and Renè have a combined 40 years of retail history, including senior retail management experience, and 10 years of store ownership.
With the opening of their new SPAR store in Wilton, south-west Sydney, the Randalls will support the community by providing a much-needed supermarket in the new Wilton Plaza Centre, working with local community groups and providing employment opportunities. Until the arrival of SPAR Wilton, locals had to drive more than half an hour to Picton or Campbelltown for their grocery needs.
“We aim to ensure we are a part of the growing community,” Mr Randall said.
SPAR Wilton offers fresh produce, a full-service deli, quality meat delivered fresh daily, a great grocery range and strong dairy, frozen and general merchandise ranges to ensure the community can source all of their supermarket needs locally. Open seven days from 6am to 8pm, SPAR Wilton’s friendly service and value offer will ensure the store’s popularity with customers.
“We will be a store where you can meet all of your weekly shopping needs at competitive prices,” Mr Randall said. “We have also implemented a great loyalty program to reward customers who shop with us.”
SPAR Wilton welcomed new customers to inspect the store and join the celebrations at their grand opening on January 30. There were taste testings, giveaways, a sausage sizzle, live entertainment provided by the community radio station and great specials. Children were entertained with a very popular kindi farm, a jumping castle, face-painting, fairies, a magician and balloon characters. The event was very well attended, with more than a thousand people coming along to support the launch.
State MP Jai Rowell, Wollondilly Mayor Simon Landow and SPAR Australia Managing Director Lou Jardin joined the Randall family for the formalities, each saying a few welcoming words and participating in the cake and ribbon cutting ceremonies. As soon as the ribbon was cut, customers flooded into the store and were pleasantly surprised by the great range and value they found on offer.
