The owner of the Strathalbyn IGA supermarket centre has decided to sell the property and close the centre, just months after announcing plans to expand the site.
Malcolm Montgomery announced earlier this year that he was planning to double the size of the centre, but has now, in agreement with IGA owner Peter Minervini, decided to shut up shop on November 30th this year, leaving the town with just the one supermarket.
With development approval already confirmed at the site, the new owner would be able to start renovations immediately after purchase.
All businesses associated with the centre will be trading as per normal, Tami Alexander from Strath Seafood saying it's important people know that the businesses around the centre will continue.
ONLY IGA will cease trading on the 30th November. The rest of the centre, are all definitely trading past 30th Nov. As most of the business's surrounding IGA are small family owned and run, we need the town of Strathalbyn to know that we are all trading as usual
