Two of Adelaide’s leading supermarkets, Foodland Frewville and Pasadena, have decided to close their doors for three days over the Easter long-weekend to help their employees recharge and spend time with their families.
The family-owned business which employs 700 staff across their two stores has decided to close on Easter Monday as well as the mandatory Good Friday and Easter Sunday, after an unprecedented few weeks for supermarkets following the escalation of COVID-19 (Coronavirus).
Commercial Retail Group Director Spero Chapley said “our team has been working incredibly hard over the last few weeks to support our customers and the local communities in which we operate.
“We’re a family business and while family gatherings may be a bit smaller than usual this Easter, we recognise the importance of people spending time with their loved ones during the holidays,” said Mr Chapley.
“We don’t see the need to take advantage of the deregulated shopping hours over Easter.”
Foodland Frewville and Pasadena Easter Shopping Hours:
Good Friday: Closed
Easter Saturday: 7am – 5pm
Easter Sunday: Closed
Easter Monday: Closed
Tuesday 14th April: Normal Trading Resumes
