Land Secured for Korumburra Supermarket
A new supermarket for Korumburra is one step closer following the signing of a contract of sale between South Gippsland Shire Council and Michael Lorenz from Korriga Property Pty Ltd, who operate Michael’s IGA supermarkets.
“A new, modern supermarket in Korumburra will be a great asset for the local community. The new site is substantially larger than the current premises and will allow for a greater range of products. We also expect that there will be economic benefits for the South Gippsland region both during and after construction. We are pleased that the land sales are proceeding and can’t wait to see the end result.”Julie Eisenbise, South Gippsland Shire Council Chair Administrator
The sale of 155-165 Commercial Street, 1 King Street and 28 Victoria Street to Korriga Property will enable the redevelopment of the site where the Korumburra Library is currently located into a new full-line supermarket. Plans are already in place to move the library into the new Korumburra ‘Hub’ development that will be commencing soon in Little Commercial Street.
