The 1000 sqm boutique supermarket is located beneath the MLC Centre’s ‘new look’ food court and will operate seven days a week from 6am to 10pm, for the convenience of shoppers.

With an approximate fit out cost of over $2 million, The Romeo Group has tailored its newest supermarket to inner city consumers, providing quality and fresh produce, all at great value to the customer.

Joseph Romeo, store owner of IGA’s Romeo’s Food Hall, said he expected to attract city workers, commuters and local residents and looked forward to bringing his 30 years of supermarket experience to Sydney.

“It is important that our new store meets the needs of busy commuters and whether looking for quality take home meals, fresh produce or staple grocery lines, they will find it all at one convenient location.”

“IGA Romeo’s Food Hall will include premium features such as a bakery that produces fresh bread, a cheese bar with a resident connoisseur and a premium meat and fish section. We are confident the most discerning of foodies will find everything they need at our supermarket,” Mr. Romeo said.

Metcash Chief Executive Ian Morrice said IGA Romeo’s Food Hall at the MLC Centre epitomises the value independent retailers can deliver through a tailored offering.
