THE RUMOURS ARE TRUE! Big W Griffith will be closing down, with confirmation that Kmart will be coming to town!
A spokesperson from Kmart has said, “We are excited to formally announce that Kmart Australia will be opening in Griffith in late 2018 and we will begin recruitment for more than 100 team members over the coming months. We thank the community and look forward to opening our doors and celebrating our everyday low prices.”
Big W's final trading day will be this Sunday April 15, 2018. Although the Griffith store has been in operation since 1978, Big W was unable to reach an agreement with the landlord.
Redeployment options will be available for staff across other Big W stores, as well as the opportunity to move across to Woolies' brands and, redundancy for permanent staff members.
While we're sad to see Big W go, we're excited to have Kmart bargains right at our fingertips! HALLELUJAH!
