The new Rosenthal Shopping Centre in Sunbury will officially open its doors to customers this week.

The centre boasts a 5100 square metre retail space with a Woolworths supermarket and a range of specialty stores including BWS, Rosenthal Tatts, Sunbury Mobiles, OBs Charcoal Chicken & Kebabs, Catch 90 Fish N Chips, Inside Out Hair, Victoria’s Pizza & Beyond, Will’s Nails and Brown Cow Cafe.

There will be 270 car parking spots, with disabled and parent parking provided.

Construction on the $27.5 million project started in September last year.

Sunbury Woolworths store manager Alain Gradidge said the new store put fresh food and convenience “at the forefront” with an in-store bakery and a new deli and seafood department.

“We are offering our customers a friendly neighbourhood food store that makes grocery shopping easy with convenient new features such as pick-up, where they can order the shopping online and then pick it up at a time that suits them, and a new bag-and-bake offering from our deli and fish market, to help create simple yet delicious family meals,” he said.

Grand opening celebrations will commence on Wednesday, June 12 and will continue across following weeks.

There will be children’s entertainment with appearances from Marvel characters Iron Man and Captain America and Nickelodeon’s PAW Patrol’s Fire Dog Marshal.

The shopping centre is located at 90 Vineyard Road, Sunbury and will open on June 12 from 8am.
