A brand-new Countdown supermarket will be built at Reading’s downtown Wellington retail complex, cinema company Reading International has announced.
An integral part of Courtenay Central’s $30 million revamp, the 3,400 sqm store is expected to open in late 2017, with work set to start half-way this year. Naylor Love has been appointed head contractor for the construction process. The supermarket will be elevated with parking underneath and will also have access to a nearby 9-level car park. Meanwhile, the adjacent cinema will be refurbished.
“We’re really excited to be establishing a new store in this busy and bustling part of Wellington City,” said Adrian Walker, general manager of property, Countdown. “The store will be a great new offer to our customers in the area, giving them access to a large full service supermarket that will complement our soon to be opened Cable Car Lane store.”
