***ANNOUNCEMENT – April 2018***
From 1st May 2018, FishCo Downunder (Belconnen store) will be under new Management. Many of our Belconnen customers will be familiar with one of the new owners, Camelia, as she has been a FishCo employee for the past 12 months.
Running more than one business since 2013 has been an amazing experience which has seen significant business growth. At the same time, as a family owned and operated business, it stretched our resources to the point of impacting on our quality of life.
Camelia expressed interest in taking the reins of the Belconnen store and though the decision to sell was a very difficult one to make, it was made slightly easier by knowing that the new owners really appreciate the business, understand how it operates and are strongly customer focussed.
We will work with the new owners during a brief transition period.
**NOTE: As of 28 Oct 2018, the new owners have stated that they will no longer honour FishCo vouchers. We thank them for honouring vouchers since May. All FishCo vouchers can now only be redeemed in our Fyshwick store. We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience.
The success of FishCo Downunder has been entirely due to our loyal customers who have supported us since 1997. We’d like to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you, our regulars and our time-to-timers, for supporting us.
Our main focus will now be our FishCo Fyshwick store where we will continue to supply fresh and frozen fish and seafood, live fish, and other goods for retail and wholesale customers, seven days a week.
No matter where you buy your fish, please follow us on Facebook for product information and recipes.
For further information, please contact the store and ask to speak with one of the owners.
