Perth Airport has opened a new shopping centre, including a Woolworths with expanded trading hours which will appeal to FIFO workers.
Dubbed Dunreath Village, the centre – which also features a Sushi Hub and a Priceline chemist – is within walking distance of Redcliffe Station in the Airport West precinct and will trade from 7am to 9pm on weekdays and 7am to 7pm on weekends and public holidays.
Standard trading hours in the Perth metro area are 8am to 9pm on weekdays, 8am to 5pm on Saturday, and 11am to 5pm on Sunday and public holidays.
“It’s taken just over 12 months to complete, and now this part of the Perth Airport estate has become one of Perth’s premium destination retail hubs thanks to the Centre’s proximity to the DFO and Costco,” said Kate Holsgrove, acting CEO, Perth Airport.
“The project generated more than 350 jobs during construction, with a further 200 ongoing retail jobs secured, and we’re expecting the centre to be extremely popular with residents, airport workers and travellers.
“A coffee shop will be opening at the southern end of the centre before the end of the year, as well as some pop-ups planned for the foyer area.”
The Woolworths will offer “grab-and-go” food as well as five direct-to-boot bays, which Woolworths state director of operations Karl Weber told Perth’s 6PR radio would also appeal to FIFO workers.
“If you’re a FIFO worker, you can go online and you board a plane and you come home and you get in your car and you go through … and you pick up your groceries on the way home. You can’t get better convenience than that.”
