Property investor and developer Cbus Property has announced IGA as the highly anticipated supermarket operator at its north-western Sydney development, The Langston.
Located in Epping, The Langston’s 523sqm anchor retail space, will operate as a small format supermarket under the management of Mint Fresh IGA owners Richard and Antoine Rizk, who run IGA stores in other north-west Sydney locations, including Baulkham Hills, Westleigh and Toongabbie.
The supermarket is set to become Metcash’s IGA flagship store and will operate under the Mint Fresh IGA Local Grocer banner, offering a wide range of fresh, locally sourced produce, deli goods, bakery items, ready-made meals, liquor and everything in between – all at competitive prices.
Richard Rizk says providing a supermarket offering tailored to the needs of the local community will be the key focus of the new store.
“We pride ourselves on knowing and listening to our local communities, and we stock our shelves with products our customers want and the brands they love,” he says.
“We also proudly support Australian farmers and producers by stocking ranges of locally grown and made products.
“Sourcing quality affordable produce is a passion of ours, and we get a lot of satisfaction out of providing our customers with the freshest and best fruit and vegetables, every day.
“We really want to showcase this philosophy through our Mint Fresh IGA Local Grocer store at The Langston, and will be engaging our local customers to ensure we offer everything they need. We can’t wait to get started.”
Preliminary internal designs for the new store have already been completed, with the fitout due to take place in the coming months, ahead of an official opening in late 2022.
IGA will join a selection of other stores in The Langston’s 2100sqm mixed-use retail precinct, including cafes, restaurants, and health and lifestyle businesses.
The Langston’s retail precinct opens onto a landscaped 2750-sqm public plaza, which provides a pedestrian connection from Epping Station via Langston Place to Epping Library on Chambers Court.
