As the population continues to grow in Ormeau and surrounds so do the commercial zones. The latest update on the Woolworths development on Peachey Road (in front of Shearers Arms Tavern / next to Woolworths Petrol Station) is that they are aiming to open early December 2014. They began construction February 2014.
The North Ormeau Town Centre site on Eggersdorf Road Ormeau is owned by Coles. They have recently advised the development will not be proceeding anytime soon due to road conditions relating to the M1 that have deemed the project cost prohibitive at this point in time.
