The Bansal’s group added to their IGA store group and opened their 18th store; in far North QLD on Tuesday 2nd May.
Townsville “Discovery Rise” is located alongside the James Cook University Campus and was previously trading as a Woolworth’s store. In only 3 days it was transformed into a Supa IGA store.
The team at Independent Solutions – a division of Metcash, deployed their Point of Sale solution PROFIT-TRACK™ in the store. Jim Tzoumanis, Colin Bowring and Duane Jesnoewski from Independent Solutions and Jacki Potter & Vicky Bonnie from Metcash Retail Technology, as well as a number of other Metcash Support Staff, dedicated their time and effort during the 3-day changeover.
This is yet another truly great example of the teams at Metcash working collaboratively and delivering a great result for the owners, staff and community.
As part of the store’s transformation, SUPA IGA Discovery Rise has increased its range, with shoppers now able to find a range of gluten-free products, International foods including American, British, Chinese, Indian and Mexican.
A standout feature of SUPA IGA Discovery Rise is the fantastic Deli department, which includes a deli specialist, who prepares gourmet delights and taste sensations for shoppers, complimented with a ‘ready to go’ range such as BBQ chickens, marinated meats and condiments for busy students, families and locals.
