Portside Wharf’s IGA is getting a bougie makeover complete with a cheese bar and an in-house cafe
Boutique grocery stores are popping up all over Brisbane of late, with fancy features like squeeze-your-own orange juice, locally sourced deli meats, self-serve snacks and much more impressing the masses. Now, Hamilton’s much-loved dining, shopping and entertainment precinct Portside Wharf is set to get it’s own levelled-up supermarket with Zeneldin’s IGA set to score an impressive expansion complete with a brand-new in-house cafe.
Portside Wharf’s family-owned IGA is soon to kick off this major expansion, growing its footprint by more than one third to cater to growing demand in the Hamilton area. Since opening the doors to the supermarket in 2014, brothers Robin and Ramsay Zeneldin have gained an ever-growing following of loyal customers, which this encouraged the pair to extend their community-loved store to please the hungry masses. In the coming months, the store will grow significantly to 1036 sqm, helping the Zeneldin brothers to achieve their renewed focus on grab-and-go fare, takeaway meals and health and wellbeing products.
The store, which already has a jam-packed collection of tasty grab-and-go bites like sandwiches, rolls, salads, burgers and hot food, will add more gourmet and takeaway offerings to the deli. As well as an expanded selection of meat, produce and delicatessen goods, there will also be a new cafe, cheese bar and health-food section added to the store. The cafe, called The Street Café, will offer coffee, as well as sweet and savoury baked goods like muffins and croissants. Plus, pet parents with fur babies will be pleased to hear that the pet food section will be expanding too – so your four-legged friend won’t miss out on the fun. The new fit-out at IGA Portside Wharf is anticipated to commence in April and be completed mid-year, with the store remaining open during this period.
