The Co-op’s Now Open in Parramatta!
We’ve opened up yet another store, this time in one of the country’s busiest shopping areas in Western Sydney’s Parramatta. Woo hoo!
We’re extremely excited about this new addition, which opened its freshly-shined doors on Monday. The store is just one of the many innovative ways the Co-op is exploring growth opportunities outside of traditional university campuses.
Located between the newly-developed Church Street Mall Plaza, Westfield Parramatta and Parramatta train station, the store will be passed by more than 40,000 commuters every day. It will cater to the needs of students and staff from the University of New England Parramatta, as well as other training and learning centres in Western Sydney.
Along with offering textbooks, course notes and study supplies, the store will focus on re-engaging with lost Members through sales to the general public. There’s a wide range of general merchandise for shoppers, including fiction and non-fiction books, tech gear, health and beauty items, games and homewares.
This new store brings the Co-op’s total number of store to 58 around Australia.
The store was ready for business thanks to the hard work and elbow grease of a few awesome members of the Co-op team. Check out this quick time-lapse video of the three-day creation:
