GEORGE NEWS - Eden Meander held a small pre-opening function on Tuesday for Sportsman's Warehouse that will start trading on Saturday.
The 1 700m² Sportsman's Warehouse is the first of the stores in the second phase of the 28 500m² development to open its doors.
The remainder of the tenants will open on 29 October.
These include a Checkers Hyper of 8 500m², The Pro Shop, Baby Boom, PnA Stationers, House & Home, Mambo's Plastic Warehouse (1 200m²), Golden Harvest (1 200m²), Pure Inidia, Sole Rebels, restaurant chains John Dory's and Cattle Baron, and a host of smaller tenants.
On the opposite side of the road, the new premises for Tavcor George is also nearing completion and a roof wetting was held on Friday afternoon.
If all goes according to plan, the big move from Laing Street will take place sometime in May.
