Still more to come in Rose City Shoppingworld

COLES may now be open but there's still more to come at Rose City Shoppingworld.

As well as the long-anticipated opening on the supermarket giant, today also saw the opening of The Bread Factory.

The coming weeks will see more shops open up and Rose City Shoppingworld marketing manager Louise de Lissa said shoppers were in for a treat.

"In the newly opened Fitzroy St mall, we're pleased to announce North Home Decor will be opening very soon,” she said.

"Warwick has nothing like this and it's going to look amazing.

"I can't wait to see the fit out and I think shoppers will love it when it opens shortly.

"Also Go Vita are taking over a large space and next to them we'll have a deli, which is really exciting.

"Cafe Roze will be near the Fitzroy St entrance and right next to them we're proud to welcome Southern Downs Skin and Laser Clinic to the centre.”

Magic Cave Massage will open soon next to Strandbags and Flight Centre will move from their current location on Palmerin St to take over the vacant store next to the Optus shop.

Mrs de Lissa said today's openings were a massive relief.

"It's so good to see so many Warwick shoppers out here today,” she said.

"It's taken seven years of planning and development to get to this point and we're only weeks away from being full and finished.”

The man in charge of the development, McConaghy Group's Robert McConaghy said all remaining fit outs would be completed within a month.

"This is a very special occasion for us today,” he said.

"I must congratulate Coles for taking the courageous step to allow us to knock their Bi-Lo store down and waiting to take this fresh new start here in Warwick today.

"It shows their massive faith in the Warwick market.”

Mr McConaghy said the development had been built to a high standard.

"The three towers on the centre are a unique architectural feature, designed to compliment the Warwick Town Hall,” he said.

"I'm really pleased with the way the build has slotted in with the heritage precinct that surrounds it.”
