Bernardi’s Marks Milestone in New Location | Forbes Lawyer
Wow, that’s hard to believe either!
Although Bernardi has been in operation for over 50 years, in May the team and the Bernardi family proudly celebrate the 10th anniversary of their new store at the Lachlan Street location.
To celebrate, Bernardi’s is giving away 1,000 cupcakes, hosting a BBQ for shoppers on May 28, and running a contest to win a Blaupunkt Smart TV worth $899 for the month of May!
All customers are welcome to join in the celebrations.
After spending 42 years at the previous location just across the road, it was a huge achievement for the family to be able to expand the footprint by 50% and improve the customer experience by building the new store. .
We asked CEO Joseph Bernardi to reflect on the past 10 years and pick out some highlights!
Here are some of the highlights:
- Celebrated 50 years in business in 2019
- Launched their ‘Pick Local’ program which focuses on sourcing local New South Wales produce and produce, often from other family businesses. The Pick Local program now has more than 30 local producers involved. Here are a few: Early Rise Baking Co – Stevenson Family, Dubbo; Little Big Dairy Milk – Duncan Family, Dubbo; Narromine Mumblepeg Juice – Roberts Family, Narromine; Fresh Forage Dips – Schofield Family, Orange; Canobolas Eggs – Peffer Family, Canobolas; Heifer Station Wines – Stivens Family, Orange; Fletcher Lamb – Fletcher Family, Dubbo
- Launched the Bernardi Building Better Communities program in 2019, which has helped support 84 local organizations in the Midwest and proudly donated nearly $200,000
- Survived a pandemic and maintained stock levels for the local community
- Prime Minister Scott Morrison and Deputy Prime Minister Dominic Perrottet visited in 2021
- Launched a new locally sourced full uniform from Gunn’s Menswear to over 500 employees
The Bernardi family would like to take this opportunity to thank the local town for their continued support in shopping at Bernardi’s Marketplace.
Without our loyal customers, we would simply not exist, so we are very grateful for that.
