Local shoppers rejoice!

After almost two years after Tennant Creek’s only supermarket was damaged by arsonists, the rebuilt store will open its doors next Thursday morning.

The multi-million dollar rebuild will likely mean Tennant Creek will enjoy one of the flashiest supermarkets rarely seen in remote communities. The return of the IGA catalogues and in-store specials will also please bargain hunters.

While locals will be keen to head into the Tennant Creek IGA, COVID-19 restrictions remain and number limits will need to be adhered to.

Next Thursday will be a soft opening, with a grand opening and celebrations to be held at a later date.

It has not been decided what the Relief Supermarket, situated at the BP Complex, will be used for after the supermarket moves back to the rebuilt premises.
