Roma’s $2m IGA redevelopment finalised and set to re-open
After a two month closure, Roma locals will be invited into the new and improved Cornetts Supermarket next week, showcasing their $2 million full redevelopment.
Cornetts Supermarkets have just finalised their full redevelopment and will present a new look that really is, as fresh as it gets.
CEO of Cornetts Supermarkets Graham Booysen said the multimillion-dollar injection into the Roma store demonstrates their investment in and strong commitment to the Roma community.
Mr Booysen said the store overhaul was so comprehensive that it needed to shut it’s doors for two months to undertake the works required.
“We have revitalised the store from the signage at the front of the store through to a full range of new fridges and freezers, flooring and more,” Mr Booysen said.
The store will open it’s doors at 7am on Wednesday, March 17 and there will be several activities for locals of all ages – ribbon and cake cutting by Mr Booysen and Maranoa mayor Tyson Golder at 8am.
The Lions Club of Roma will hold a BBQ and 4ZR will be broadcasting outside from 7-10am.
There will be a colouring in competition for kids, lots of giveaways and double points for all Rewards Card shoppers.
The CEO will be providing the Lions Club of Roma a $20,000 donation in recognising their efforts and to provide resources needed for the community.
Mr Booysen said despite there being more refrigeration and freezer space in the store, the renovation will see a reduction in energy usage by 30 per cent.
“This will reduce the store’s overall environmental footprint which is something we
are very passionate about,” he said.
“To reduce our energy use and provide a better experience to our shoppers is definitely a win-win for the area, for us and for the environment.”
“The new look is bright, open and welcoming … the surrounding strip lit refrigeration is a sleek new look and encompasses fresh produce, deli and meat, right through to frozen produce.
“We believe that a good supermarket is an integral part of a small town and our long
connection to and investment in Roma is testament to that.”
Cornetts support many towns with local sponsorship, like the donation to the Lions Club, plus the Royal Flying Doctor Service, Drought Angels and Guide Dogs Queensland.
“The community feeling runs deep in the Cornetts brand as we believe the store is part
of the Roma community and that Roma is part of the Cornetts community,” Mr Booysen said.
“Cornetts is committed to delivering quality fresh foods and quality meats at great prices that everyone can afford, and they are excited to launch the new fresh store look in Roma.”
