Spotlight has opened its 144th store in Taylors Beach, NSW, welcoming local homemakers, crafters and hobbyists from across Port Stephens.

Spotlight CEO, Quentin Gracanin said the store includes an elevated format that can be found across its other new sites.

“We’re excited for the Port Stephens community to experience our new store design, which includes a dedicated area for our Dress and Party ranges, as well as a Green Room which holds our entire faux floral range,” he said.

“With Easter and school holidays upon us, the opening comes at the perfect time for everyone to stock up on their essentials.”

In addition to its product offering, the store will employ more than 25 local team members across the board. “We have an amazing, talented and passionate team of all ages, who are excited and ready to welcome the community,” Gracanin said.
