AFTER hearing about it for a year, shoppers in the Kirkwood area finally entered the doors of their new Woolworths store yesterday.

Woolworths' regional manager Gary Boyer said the new centre would have not only a Woolworths supermarket but it would also house other businesses and retail outlets.

The new complex will include a medical centre, pharmacy, restaurants, a news-agent, bottle shop, bakery, fashion outlets and more.

The Woolworths Kirkwood Centre will employ about 300 people, with 100 of those positions in the Woolworths supermarket.

Local politicians from all levels of government were on hand for an opening ceremony at the shopping centre, which is expected to alleviate pressure on other shopping centres and roads in the Gladstone area.
