Metcash expands Harvest Market
The new Rouse Hill Harvest Market store is the fifth for the new chain and will offering fresh produce, as a well as continental deli, and other fresh foods and gourmet grocery items.
The new Harvest Market store is a conversion of the existing Country Growers owned by the Bassar family, who will continue to manage and own the outlet.
The Harvest Market network of independently owned, franchised outlets is in the process of being rolled out across Australia with a strong site specific trading culture.
COO of Metcash, Silvestro Morabito, said the opening of Rouse Hill Harvest Market is a landmark for the new brand, which is now challenging the national chains and specialized fresh food outlets.
“We are providing fruit shop owners a fixed price service for the sourcing and delivery of product to the outlets, similar to Metcash’s successful strategy in providing grocery to IGA and other independent retailers,” Morabito said.
The first Harvest Market franchised store opened last year in Wollongong under existing local owners.
