We look forward to working alongside the developer to deliver this project for our Invercargill customers.
We are extremely excited to be able to offer employment of 100 new jobs to the area along with our irresistibly low prices on products to help make everyday living brighter.”
Formerly tenanted by Brownies and Clean Biz, the site is currently being prepared for demolition.
