Australia Post invests AUS$1m in new Alice Springs superstore
Australia Post has today (5 August) officially opened a new superstore in Alice Springs, following a $1 million investment to cater for changing consumer needs.
Speaking at the launch event, the Chief Minister for the Northern Territory, Adam Giles, said: “Australia Post has listened to the needs of the Alice Springs community by investing in this Post Office transformation. The new superstore will provide access to critical services and create an important hub for residents and visitors alike.”
Australia Post Executive General Manager Postal Services, Christine Corbett, said the new superstore offered an “innovative” range of parcel and postal products and services.
“Online shopping in Australia continues to grow so the introduction of a superstore in Alice Springs provides shoppers with access to postal services six days a week in a new, modern environment,” Corbett said.
“The new superstore features a state-of-the-art design and an extensive range of postal products and services, including 24/7 parcel lockers to make it even easier for customers to pick up parcels at a time that suits them.”
As previously reported, Australia Post also opened a new superstore in Hervey Bay, Queensland, last week. The Alice Springs superstore brings the total number of Australia Post superstores to 57 nationwide.
Unfortunately for Australia Post, the superstore launch in Alice Springs has been rather overshadowed by the news that three men have been arrested today for allegedly running two government-subsidised training colleges that hired out its foreign students to work as sub-contractors for Australia Post on sub-standard wages.
