IT HAS been years in the making and now Woolworths has officially revealed its plans to bring Dan Murphy's to the city.

Andrew Wilsmore, of Woolworths Liquor, confirmed a store would be opening on Edward Street in early 2014 and creating more than 35 jobs.

The multimillion-dollar investment in the city comes after the Masters Home Improvement store, another Woolworths project, which has injected more than $20 million into the economy.

Dan Murphy's had hoped to be in the city as early as 2005, but finding the right location, getting development approval and securing liquor licences has taken some time, Mr Wilsmore said.

Work is expected to begin on demolishing buildings on the corner of Edward and Flinders streets after tenants vacate the premises in early July.

"We're trying to get the building happening as soon as possible, but it will not be opening until the early quarter of next year," Mr Wilsmore said.

The 1410 square metre new concept store promises to be worth the wait in giving residents more choice than the Woolworths BWS store in Station Place, which will be closed as a result of the development.

The store will create 15 full-time or permanent part-time positions and more than 20 casual positions for work during peak periods.
