If approved, the Metro store will use the existing two-storey buildings, retaining and complementing the high street, with the heritage shop fronts restored.


The Metro store will provide around 500 sqm of ground floor retail, with the upper level used for storage and team office space.


The Metro store is designed to meet contemporary needs, with people increasingly preferring to do more frequent shops, for fewer items which can be carried home, reducing the need for trolleys.


Comparable Woolworth Metro stores in Rozelle and Erskineville show that around 80% of people who attend a Metro store walk to these stores.
