Metro upgrade to wow shopper

THE multi-million dollar redevelopment of Marrickville Metro is set to open mid next year.

Centre Manager Dean Young says the centre has been a proud part of the Inner West community since the 1980s, and they’re keen to keep adapting and developing the centre in response to what Inner West customers want and deserve. “Our new development does just that,” he said.
The new community-inspired hub will include an “amazing fresh food precinct and a mix of speciality retailers”. It will feature a market-style showcase of artisan fresh produce, food products, authentic ethnic cuisines and a variety of indoor and alfresco dining and drinking destinations. All handpicked from some of the best names in local produce and hospitality.
The food precinct will be anchored by a new Coles supermarket, in addition to Woolworths and ALDI. It will also offer a click and collect service, and local home delivery. Shoppers can also expect to see speciality retailers such as a boutique bookstore, gift stores and “some exciting additions to the centre in the health and fitness domain”.
Marrickville Metro will also continue its drive towards greater sustainability with the incorporation of solar energy into the new development.
“Our goal is to create one of the most sustainable shopping centres in NSW and a space that truly reflects the values of the local community,” Mr Young said.
