Woolworths has opened its smallest Metro store to date in Sydney’s CBD.

Located on York Street, the 310sqm store opened this week and takes the total number of Metro stores to 16, with seven stores in both New South Wales and Victoria, and two stores in Queensland.

The Woolworths Metro format was first launched by the supermarket chain in 2013 in Woolloomooloo, Sydney. The express style stores are understood to generally operate on an average footprint of around 600sqm and are located in inner city, high foot traffic locations.

A Woolworths spokesperson told C&I Week the supermarket giant plans to open more Metro stores in Sydney and Melbourne over the next few months in CBD and urban areas.
