Store gets a facelift

Benalla Ensign - - Front Page -

The fa­mil­iar su­per­mar­ket on the corner of Clarke and Waller Sts has un­der­gone a facelift.

Un­der new own­er­ship and man­age­ment since November, the com­mu­nity su­per­mar­ket has been re­branded and re­named.

Now known as Food­c­ity @ Be­nalla, the su­per­mar­ket is the first in what the man­age­ment team hopes will be a na­tional chain.

‘‘We know the at­tach­ment peo­ple have with this (su­per­mar­ket),’’ busi­ness devel­op­ment man­ager Nadeeka Per­era said.

‘‘It’s the first su­per­mar­ket as a com­pany that we have ac­quired and we aim to de­velop it into a chain and that’s the first step of that.’’

Along with the new name, the Clarke St su­per­mar­ket has been re­freshed both in­side and out.

There is im­proved air­con­di­tion­ing, and Mr Per­era said the clean­li­ness and ap­pear­ance of the store had also im­proved.

‘‘We wanted to give it a facelift and a new look,’’ he said.

‘‘We are on the verge of in­tro­duc­ing all the lead­ing prod­ucts of lead­ing brands and try to of­fer qual­ity and a fresh prod­uct range that the cus­tomer needs at a rea­son­able price.’’

An­other aim for the busi­ness is to form strong con­nec­tions with the com­mu­nity.

‘‘We are look­ing at op­tions to help lo­cal or­gan­i­sa­tions and char­i­ties and to help who­ever needs help within our ca­pac­ity at the start of our busi­ness,’’ Mr Per­era said.

‘‘We want to link with the com­mu­nity and have an on­go­ing re­la­tion­ship.’’

The su­per­mar­ket is open seven days a week from 7 am to 8 pm.

Food­c­ity @ Be­nalla is at 122-124 Waller St, Be­nalla. For more in­for­ma­tion phone 5762 4645.
