WOOLWORTHS METRO STORE
Woolworths Group is delivering a small-format Metro store in Mosman Village. The Metro store located at 731-741 Military Road Mosman was found suitable for approval by the Land and Environment Court on 2 November 2021.
The Court has outlined a number of conditions for approval that Woolworths is currently reviewing in detail. Plans for the Metro store will include around 500sqm of retail space, including a new café and additional parking.
The Metro store will be located within the existing two-storey heritage buildings fronting Military Road and will involve restoring the heritage shop fronts and retaining the high street atmosphere.
The plans have been carefully considered to complement the area’s existing shops and village atmosphere whilst providing more options for the community to shop close to home.
Woolworths will keep local residents and businesses informed on the next steps and will provide a detailed update on the project in as they finalise a response to the Council addressing the conditions of approval outlined in the Court’s decision.
The Metro store will provide around 500 sqm of ground floor retail, with the upper level used for storage
and team office space (this compares to more than 3,600 sqm for a standard full-line supermarket).
Woolworths Group is seeking operating hours from 7am to 10pm Monday to Saturday and 8am to 10pm Sundays.
A WALK UP STORE
Metro stores are designed to service a walk-up catchment to encourage shopping closer to home.
A NEW CAFÉ
The Metro store will include a café that will seat up to 12 customers at any one time.
LISTENING TO THE COMMUNITY
Woolworths Group is continuing to engage with the community as a response to Council is prepared to address the conditions of approval outlined in the Court’s decision.
The community feedback received to
date has played a significant role in the new approach to delivering a substantially smaller store designed to
integrate seamlessly with the existing village feel of Mosman.
