Monday, 2 June 2014: Residents of Double Bay will see the opening of one of Australia’s most modern supermarkets on Thursday when Woolworths opens the doors of its new store on Kiaora Lane at Double Bay.
The new supermarket within the $110 million Kiaora Lands development will open at 8am on Thursday, 5 June. The new store will provide customers with fresh Australian produce, inspiring meal ideas, a wide choice of healthy options and a huge range of grocery items at great prices.
The store, at more than 5,000 square metres, will also include Woolworths’ first walk in fromagerie, fresh barista made coffee, a bakery providing fresh bread daily, a pizza bar that creates pizzas to order from scratch, a dedicated Kocher foods area and a sushi bar. The store will also include an extended beauty and wellness area with Woolworths’ Macro range that includes a number of free range, free from and organic choices.
