Growing demand in Sunshine Coast’s Hinterland forces IGA to expand

The Hinterland town of Mooloolah on the Sunshine Coast has seen a surge of new residents, and the local IGA is set to undergo a makeover to cater for the increased demand.

Twelve months on from opening their sixth beautifully appointed IGA, Roz and Michael White are now focusing on breathing new life into one of their earlier stores.

The plans are to increase the floor area by a total of 661 to 1522 metres squared and create space for an additional 70 cars.

Co-founder of White’s IGA, Roz White, said she was looking forward to increasing their product to support the needs of the wider community.

“We are delighted that this renovation to our beautiful Mooloolah store will allow us to expand the range of products we can offer to the Mooloolah community.

“As always, we will have a key focus on our locavore suppliers and broaden our range of everyday goods at great prices. This enhanced offering will be of benefit to the whole community,” said White.

Working alongside developer Primo Property, the White Group will undertake a full interior and exterior refurbishment of the building while preserving the hinterland character of Mooloolah.

Development manager for Primo Property, Christopher Ferraro said his company was delighted to be working on this project.

“While the construction phase of the project will be a significant driver of local employment, the long-term operation of this store ensures there will be jobs for locals into the future and that is important.

“At the heart of this town is the community, so doing what we can to keep everything local is a key driver for us. We will work hard to ensure all trades working on the project are from the Sunshine Coast region… It really is a local project, for the local people, by the local people, and that makes us incredibly proud,” said Ferraro. 

The project has already commenced and is expected to be completed by the end of this year.
