It brings us great pleasure to announce the opening of our brand new store in Malvern! This marks the culmination of a 5 year plan that had its humble beginnings with our original branch in Hawthorn. We’ve taken everything we’ve learned from our Hawthorn and Kew stores, along with invaluable customer feedback and poured it all into this new creation – and it’s something we’re really proud of.
When we opened our Kew store in July of last year we equipped it with a production floor with the capacity to supply three stores – and now it can live up to its full potential.
We thought long and hard about which suburb of Melbourne could be home to a new Cannings, and Malvern quickly emerged as the obvious choice. Located at 195 Glenferrie Road (corner of Union Street) we wanted our new retail space to offer the people of Malvern access to a different kind of food shopping experience.
A new side of town meant a new approach, so we worked with renowned interior designer Fiona Lynch (who designed our Kew store) to develop an aesthetic that would reflect and compliment the character of Malvern’s shopping precinct. The finished product is bright and inviting and we’re really happy with it (look out for our circular window!). Malvern is our smallest store in terms of square-feet but the space is utilised to its full potential with a generous cabinet and self-serve. There’s ample bench space for our butchers to cut meat on-site – while other, larger scale tasks are better handled by our production floor at Kew and then transferred in the Cannings Van. All your favourite Cannings products are here and we’re using this as an opportunity to debut some exciting new things, too.
We may be growing but we’re still a family-owned business and quality control is important to us. We’re working hard to make sure that the standard of our products and service remains as high as our beloved customers deserve. The initial response to our new store from Malvern locals has been overwhelmingly positive, we feel welcome and at home already!
We’d like to take this opportunity to thank our loyal customers for sharing in our love for ethical, quality meat and for allowing for us to spread that love a little bit further.
