REVEALED: What the new Kingaroy IGA will look like
KINGAROY IGA will be getting a fresh, modern look and, in time, will be become a one-stop shop for customers.
However, Kingaroy IGA store manager Trace O'Neill said a renovation of this size was a slow process.
"It's going to take some time, and there is going to be some inconvenience to our valued customers, and I do apologise for that," Mr Trace said.
The IGA expansion will include a cafe, bottle shop and chemist attached to the supermarket.
"It's just a much more updated, modern look," Mr O'Neill said.
"This is the first time I've been involved with a renovation to this scale, I'm looking forward to the end product."
The additional shops will increase the shopping experience of IGA customers.
"They can drop their doctors script off first, and then do their grocery shopping," Mr O'Neill said.
The store manager said he was very happy with the plans for the finished renovation.
"I just want to make it a more pleasant place for my customers to shop," he said.
One of his main priorities was making sure there would be a new, safer entry to the store.
"I want to make it easy for my customers to enter the store - the zebra crossing issue will be fixed," Mr O'Neill said.
Workers on the site have been focussing on groundwork first.
"It's just a slow process at the start," Mr O'Neill said.
Kingaroy IGA will be running specials from this Friday in an effort to apologise for any inconvenience the upgrades cause loyal customers.
These Kingaroy-only specials will continue on Tuesdays.
"Just keep an eye out on our weekly specials in the Tuesday edition of The South Burnett Times, these reno specials are for Kingaroy only," Mr O'Neill said.
