Woolworths opens fifth Sydney Metro store

Woolworths has opened a new Metro store in The Sydney Arcade at 400 George Street.

The supermarket chain’s fifth Metro store in the Sydney CBD, the 1,240sqm space is intended as a “grab-and-go” shopping experience, with extended trading hours to capitalise on the high volume of pedestrian traffic in the precinct.

“Woolworths is excited to deliver a new Metro store in Pitt Street Mall in the heart of the Sydney CBD,” Woolworths Head of Property, Fuels & Metro Ross Finlay said. “The CBD and inner-metropolitan markets are a key focus of the Metro store rollout, as we seek to provide a convenient shopping experience close to where customers live and work.

“The new Pitt St Mall Metro store will cater to the needs of office workers, shoppers, tourists and residents in the Sydney CBD, and will comprise a new look and feel for Metro, with a café, fresh food, food for now and food for later, groceries and bakery, amongst other things.”

400 George Street is a 51,034sqm office tower and retail arcade located in the centre of the Sydney CBD, jointly owned by Investa Commercial Property Fund, the M&G Asia Property Fund and funds managed by Mirvac.
