RESPECTING THE VILLAGE FEEL
In response to feedback from the Mosman community, Woolworths Group revised its
plans from a full line supermarket to a small, neighbourhood Metro store.
The plans have been considered to preserve and restore the buildings’ heritage façade to ensure the
longevity of the original structure.
Woolworths Group is working with an experienced consultant team, including a heritage specialist, to ensure the shop fronts integrate with the existing look and feel of Mosman Village. The heritage works will ensure the significance of the existing buildings is retained and enhanced.

The plans will complement the local Mosman retail environment.
At other Metro stores on high streets in Sydney, there has been an increase in the
amount of time people spend in the area, and indications of higher levels of cross-shopping at local businesses.

Complementing the local area
The Metro store is designed to meet contemporary needs. People can shop more frequently, for fewer items which can be carried home, reducing the need to drive to the shops or use trolleys in-store.
Each Metro store is tailored to the community it serves. The stores offer value and options — and are well-located to public transport. Mosman’s unique village atmosphere has actively informed the plans and reflects feedback received from the community.
