Grand opening of APCO Alfredton draws huge community turnout

The grand opening of the new APCO Alfredton was held over the weekend with a great turnout of local community members joining in the festivities.

The store features an IGA X-press with competitive pricing for everyday supermarket grocery items, an expanded fresh food dynamic including deli and gourmet foods, and a Barista Coffee bar.

With the population forecast for Alfredton set to grow to 15,716 by 2036, the new APCO store is one of the largest footprints of APCO’s 27 stores. The store’s design is customer-centric and easy to navigate, with the café and grocery sections divided into two distinct areas.

The grand opening included monster trucks, food tastings, award-winning coffee, giveaways, balloons, and face painting.

Attendees received an APCO canvas bag, filled with goodies to say thanks for helping to celebrate, as well as being able to win other prizes such as an APCO Gift Card thanks to Ice Break, or a 10kg Cadbury block.

The day was attended by APCO Director Robert Anderson as well as Ballarat’s local member, The Hon Juliana Addison MP, who congratulated APCO for bringing such a fantastic store to the growing community of Alfredton.

“Congratulations to APCO on the opening of the new Alfredton store, it is fantastic to see the job creation that has come out of this opening as well as the offering it now has for the Ballarat community; whether it’s great coffee, affordable fuel prices and a broad delicious food offering. With our growing suburbs this is just what the western suburbs of Ballarat needs,” she said.
