    The new super size Cheap as Chips in Sunshine, is the retail chain’s 44th store nationally and the first in Melbourne’s western suburbs. Starting in South Australia in 1983, it’s a discount store with plenty on offer and always introducing something new.

    Cheap as Chips stock a large range of products customers may not expect from a discount store, including speciality grocery items from the US, NZ, a large range of mobility products and everything from TV’s to gardening.

    Opening last November, Store Manager, Jess Blackshaw says, “We have 21 staff and the team were excited at the opportunity of all starting together and building an inclusive and fun culture at Sunshine. We have a wonderful diversity of staff all from the west who have a great sense of ownership of the store, we pride ourselves on customer service and working as a team to make Sunshine a success.

    “As well as regular local customers, people have come from as far away as Ballarat and Shepparton to visit the store and take advantage of our weekly catalogue specials. We have had lovely feedback on the quality and range of products and that there are always team members on the floor ready and willing to help”, explained Assistant Manager, Dana Hamner.

    Cheap as Chips Sunshine is located at City West Plaza, 484 Ballarat Road behind Harvey Norman. Drop in, have a chat to the friendly staff and you’re sure not to leave empty handed.
