Gelatissimo to open in Shellharbour this Sunday

Popular gelato brand, Gelatissimo, is expanding its Illawarra offering this December, opening a new store in Stocklands Shellharbour this Sunday 15 December. The new store is the second for owners Michelle and Terry Formosa who opened the doors to their first store in Wollongong in July 2018, located 20km north of the new outpost.  


“After the popularity of our first Wollongong store, we were incredibly excited to bring another Gelatissimo to the Illawarra region,” says co-owner Michelle. “We’re locals ourselves and have loved making and sharing fresh gelato with the community for the last year and a half. We can’t wait to expand that to a whole new area this summer – it’s our own little Christmas gift to ourselves and to everyone in Shellharbour!”

The new Gelatissimo Shellharbour marks the 47th Gelatissimo store to open within Australia since the company started in 2002 and will offer the full range of flavours, including its award-winning mango and hazelnut, decadent deluxe range as well as an array of low sugar, vegan and dairy free options. Also available will be the limited edition Aussie Family Favourites range which recently launched for summer offering a collection of three nostalgic flavours, Weet-Bix™ with Honey and Banana, Choc Crackle and Fairy Bread.

The Shellharbour store will officially open at 11am on Sunday 15 December and will operate seven days a week, including delivery via Uber Eats and Deliveroo.
