Apollo, who works part-time as a magician, looked professional in a blue Tommy Hilfiger polo shirt, skinny jeans and brown boots.
During his lunch break, he was seen strolling nearby holding a cup of coffee and carrying a Woolworths reusable bag over his shoulder.
Later in the afternoon, he folded T-shirts at the counter while charring to a young woman believed to be a fellow staff member.

Things are looking up for Apollo, whose real name is Jake Spence, after he revealed on Instagram in May that he was struggling to find work as a magician.
‘Its been a crappy few months for me, entertainment has its ups and downs. The last few months have challenged me intensely, work’s dried up,’ he wrote.
‘I’ve had just two paying gigs this year, my phone subscriptions [have been] cut off for the last few months. My stage show I worked my a**e off for six months on only sold 11 tickets so I had to cancel it.’

Apollo, who first rose to fame on Sophie Monk’s season of The Bachelorette in 2017, will appear on Australia’s Got Talent later this year.
He will perform a death-defying aerial show that involves being wrapped in a straitjacket and set on fire.
