Supabarn to open Kingston store at former IGA site on 11 October

Ian Bushnell 6 October 2017 1

The new Kingston Supabarn Express store in Giles Street is taking shape and will open on 11 October.

Supabarn looks set to fill the breach left by the sudden closure of the IGA store in Kingston, opening at its former Giles Street site on 11 October.

The store carries plain Supabarn signage with signs on the window announcing the opening date and staff vacancies.

Supabarn confirmed last month that it had leased the Giles Street site for an Express supermarket, only a short walk from the proposed larger Supabarn site in the Atria development on Eyre Street that is due to open in 2019.

Supabarn’s managing director Theo Koundouris was quoted at the time as saying the company felt that the Kingston community needed a quality local supermarket facility and it didn’t want the community to be without one until the Eyre Street store opened.

But he did not say what will happen after 2019 when the larger store opens.

The former IGA store closed abruptly in early September.

The Atria website says its ground floor piazza will deliver cafés, boutique stores and a 3500 square metre Supabarn Supermarket — “providing for your daily, fresh fruit and vegetable, gourmet deli and BYO needs within the convenience of a local shopfront”.

Supabarn did not return calls.
