Quality, style and convenience are now closer to home for the residents of Woodmead with the opening of a new Woolworths store in Woodmead Retail Park. The new 2211m2 Woolworths, which opened on Thursday 24 April 2008, will offer fashionable clothing, shoes and accessories for the family, Woolworths legendary homeware and the finest foods. There will also be a café where shoppers can take a break and enjoy a cup of organically grown coffee, light meals and other refreshments, as well as a Woolworths connect counter offering the latest in cell phones, GPS systems and more. Woolworths Woodmead will be making a difference to the local community in other ways as well. The store has formed a supportive partnership with St. Vincent School for the Deaf and has already handed over a cheque for R5000. Woolworths Woodmead will regularly supply St. Vincent School for the Deaf with surplus food. In addition, Woolworths will be investing further in the community through long-term development programmes. “We’d also like to invite our new customers to get involved in supporting local schools or other organisations through our MySchoolMyVillageMyPlanet initiative,” says store manager Charlene Sewpaul. “It doesn’t cost the customer anything, but every time they swipe any Woolworths or MySchool card in our store – or any Woolworths store in the country – Woolworths makes a contribution on their behalf to the beneficiary of their choice.” For more information about MySchoolMyVillageMyPlanet, pick up a leaflet at Woolworths or visit www.woolworths.co.za . You can also phone the Woolworths customer services centre on 0860 022 002. Woolworths Woodmead will trade seven days a week for the convenience of shoppers. Trading hours are from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday, Friday 9:00a.m. to 7:00 p.m., Saturday 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., and Sunday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. ENDS
