Fishers IGA Supermarkets Managing Director, Alan Fisher, is proud to announce the opening of their 16th store. The latest acquisition to the Fishers IGA group, previously a Foodworks supermarket, is located in Vincent St, Ararat and will complement Fishers IGA stores located in Stawell, Warracknabeal, Hamilton and Miner’s Rest.
Managing Director, Alan Fisher is looking forward to working with the local community and supporting not for profit groups through the Community Benefits program, that has already seen over $1.5 million allocated to local groups across the regions where Fishers stores are located.
“The Fisher’s team is delighted to be able to bring their own brand of service and community participation to the people of Ararat and the surrounding districts.” Mr Fisher said. “Fishers IGA Supermarkets are focused on providing great service, competitive prices and real value for money for local shoppers. We offer our customers the freshest produce available as well as a great range of grocery items to help the family budget.”
“Our new store in Ararat continues our commitment to regional areas with all our stores located in country Victoria, South Australia and NSW and employ over 1100 staff. We aim to offer a real alternative to the chain stores in these centres and look forward to the support of the local community.”
