Gro­cery store goes 24/7

North Coast Weekender - - Front Page -

CUS­TOMERS can soon get their gro­ceries at any time of day or night with Mul­laloo IGA an­nounc­ing it will open 24 hours from Au­gust 1.

Gen­eral man­ager Michelle Kelly said the move was to “to keep up with the times”.

“It’s good for mums at night when the kids need some­thing and they can just pop in,” she said.

“Also for shift work­ers who come back in the mid­dle of the night: now they don’t have to go into the city and can go some­where more sub­ur­ban.”

She said items like ready-made meals be­ing avail­able at all times would also be a ben­e­fit.

Ms Kelly said it would also of­fer more jobs and more hours for cur­rent em­ploy­ees, with the liquor store to also ex­tend trad­ing to 10pm and a se­cu­rity guard to be em­ployed ev­ery night.

She said Mul­laloo’s sis­ter store in Quinns Rocks be­came 24-hours on March 1 with­out any prob­lems.

“It’s been very suc­cess­ful and the com­mu­nity has been very sup­port­ive,” she said.­mu­ni­ d485161 Picture: Martin Ken­nealey
