A contingent from Woolworths Floreat Forum attended our meeting – Manager Roscoe Freese, Luke Rudman, Customer Service Manager Georgia Statten, long serving employee (32 years) Derek Hart, and his Mum Anneke. President Jeremy presented Derek with a Pride of Workmanship Award, and Georgia summarised his career to date, emphasising his excellent work ethic and the fact that customers always respond positively towards him. Roscoe also praised Derek’s attitude and contribution, and then answered a number of questions from the floor about Woolworths. On-line shopping has increased markedly since Covid-19 set in, but this is unlikely to impact adversely on supermarkets’ presence in shopping centres; it is the smaller shops that are suffering from the lower traffic levels. Woolworths tries to source as much stock as possible from local suppliers, but some of these suppliers can’t or won’t deal with them. However 96% of the fruit and vegetables sold are grown in Australia. Max proposed a vote of thanks, and PP Peter Pearse thanked Woolworths for their help in providing stock at manageable prices for our regular Wembley Junior Cricket Sausage Sizzles.
