PERFORMING: Kennington Woolworths, which customers have flocked to.

THE opening of Kennington Woolworths about two weeks ago was one of the company's strongest first days of any branch in Victoria, in recent times.

Store manager Adam Hutton said he was "absolutely rapt" by the store's performance.

"It was estimated we had 5000 people go through the doors on the first day and 20,000 customers in the first week," he said. "A heap of customers were very excited."

The store opened at Kennington Village on August 27, providing a one-stop-shop for residents.

Mr Hutton said many people had told him they wanted a Woolworths store in the area for a long time.

"Too many people said it was too long coming," he said.
