The Japanese-inspired health chain FISHBOWL is opening a store in Armadale, Victoria in partnership with youth organisation Flying Fox on 7 January 2023. 

Flying Fox is a Melbourne-based organisation that connects kids living with a disability with the broader community through exciting camps and fun-filled activities. Flying Fox has been running since 2014, and its mission is to build connections and inspire inclusion. It comprises a network of volunteer buddies and campers to create positive social interactions in a fun and safe environment

Over the past four months, FISHBOWL has been hosting “hang-outs” with members of Flying Fox in their stores to engage with them and build their confidence through real-life experiences. 

Fishbowl and Flying Fish

The grand opening of the Armadale store will harness a community feel with all proceeds from the day going towards supporting Flying Fox’s programs as they continue to grow. Guests will be able to visit the new store from 11 am where FISHBOWL will also be providing beats, sweets and treats throughout the day.

The expansion into Armadale will mark FISHBOWL’s sixth store in Victoria, with plans to continue collaborations with local brands to create unique specials and opportunities exclusive to the area.

The partnership between FISHBOWL and Flying Fox will be the first of many in their drive to change the culture through healthy initiatives and give back to communities.

Store location: The store is located at Shop 4 & 5, 953-967A High Street, Armadale 3143 VIC. Show your support by visiting the store on Saturday 7 January from 11am.
