In 2018 there was an Aldi, and Coles in the old jack the slasher site. and an IGA on melbourne st and a woolies metro in grey stThe article below talks about the area being under serviced by supermakets and locals spending $81m a year buying groceries in surrounding areas so should be all good. Personally I'm looking forward to Harris Farm opening a flagship store.
Two West End Woolworths Set to Open in 2020 - First National Real Estate Metro - Buy, Sell, Real Estate, Property and Homes for Lease & Rent. West End, Brisbane, Wolloongabba (metrofn.com.au)
Woolies Metro on Grey (Fish lane) is only new which a month or two old. IGA has been there for a while though. BI LO at The Markets West End was taken over by Coles and rebranded to a Coles and recently refurbished to a Coles standard. Aldi has been there for a while too. I think the area was under serviced by now looking well serviced for the short term.In 2018 there was an Aldi, and Coles in the old jack the slasher site. and an IGA on melbourne st and a woolies metro in grey st
In 2020, there is woolies on Montague Rd, open (full service). Aldi, Coles (refurbishment in progress) , IGA, the woolies metro above AND another at the QPAC corner, and another woolies full service in direct competition to Coles coming in West Village.
I think the market responded. Its probably over supplied.
