Supa IGA Supermarkets continue to grow its presence around the country as transformation of former Franklins stores take place.

Joining the growing converted list are Pagewood, Summer Hill and Ulladulla stores in NSW.

Both the Pagewood and Summer Hill store have reopened under the operation of Joseph Romeo of the Romeo’s Retail Group.

“We are delighted to have opened a new supermarket to benefit the people who live in the area,” Romeo said.

“The stores are designed as a one-stop-shop that gives them the convenience they need with competitive pricing and good quality produce.”
The Ulladulla store is owned by Ian Leckie, Steve Smith and Hamish Thompson.

“We are really pleased with the conversion and feel that our customers are really happy about it also, as they can already see the benefits,” Smith said.

“Being a Supa IGA has now allowed us to offer an expanded range of products, while continuing to offer really competitive pricing to give shoppers a great deal for their groceries, with our excellent customer service.”

Each store has received new painting, signage, lighting, shelving and other fixtures, as well as a complete redesign to fit the Supa IGA Supermarket look. The product lines have also been extended across all departments including grocery, dairy and frozen and fresh produces. There’s also an in-store delicatessen butcher and bakery.

The continued conversions comes as part of Metcash’s acquisition of Franklins.
