Woolworths complete at Rockhampton's newest shopping centre
PARKHURST residents rejoice - the long-awaited Parkhurst Town Centre is only months away from opening.
Project developers AHC Limited have revealed work on the major shopping centre is tracking ahead of schedule and it is expected to officially open on November 2.
AHC Limited Asset and Leasing Manager Victor Sabados said work on the centre was 'going gangbusters'.
"The Woolworths is essentially nearly done," Mr Sabados said.
"We are going to start work on the service station (Puma Energy Service Station) very soon.
"We are actually ahead of schedule.
"The road has also been widened to allow for traffic lights to be installed."
With much excitement and intrigue in regards to what shops will be taking up residence at the centre Mr Sabados said exciting news would be released in just a few weeks.
"We have major retailers Woolworths, BWS, Priceline, a medical centre and Madhouse Gift, Home Variety locked in," he said.
"We are also working on some larger names. It will be a mixture of established stores that Rocky is familiar with and some new ones we haven't seen here before.
"We are also looking for some of Rocky's local boutique stores."
