New South Wales’s premier supermarket, the largest supermarket chain in the country, is set to open in Sydney’s suburbs.
The Victoria Bistro, located at 795 South Street in Parramatta, will open its doors to the public in the coming months.
VB has a number of other stores in the city as well, including a restaurant, a coffee shop and a pharmacy.
In a statement, VB said the supermarket is an “incredible opportunity to serve the community in the heart of Sydney”.
“We believe that a retail destination that offers fresh and delicious food and a strong social presence will be a welcome addition to Sydney’s vibrant community,” the statement read.
“We look forward to the community coming to our store for lunch, dinner and a full day of shopping.”
Mr Johnson said the opening of the store was a huge win for Sydney.
“It’s a great opportunity for us to get into the community, we’re not going to do anything to make it difficult,” he said.
“VB is very proud of our community in Sydney and I think it’s great that the community is coming in and enjoying what we’re doing here.”
The Victorian Government has already received the full consent of the local council, with approval to open the store and commence its operations.
The store is the second store in Sydney to open since the end of September.
In September, the Victoria Biscuits and Waffles opened at the Sydney Fashion Show in conjunction with the Victoria’s First National Bank of Australia.
The Victoria Bismark’s was the first store in Australia to open to the general public.
