Residents of Springwood will soon benefit from even greater convenience, with the $20m ‘Springwood Place’ shopping precinct featuring a Drakes Supermarket set to open in 2022!
With construction commencing mid-2021, Springwood’s Project Director, Anthony Andolfatto, said the announcement was a major milestone for the Springwood community.
“The Drakes Supermarket, and the wider Springwood Place retail precinct, will provide even greater choice and convenience to our residents and the wider Gawler community,” he said.
“This is another milestone in the ongoing delivery of Springwood, following improved connectivity from the new Gawler East Link Road, the recent opening of X Convenience, and Where We Grow child care centre, currently under construction.”
With more than 2,900sqm of floor space and 200 car parks, the new supermarket and liquor store is expected to create 100 new jobs once complete in the Gawler region. Drakes Supermarkets Managing Director, Roger Drake, said Drakes was looking forward to becoming part of the Springwood community.
“The Springwood philosophy of connecting people and building a thriving local hub really fits in with our desire to be a part of the community, no matter where we are,” he said.
“We’re looking forward to creating 100 new jobs in the Gawler region and growing the Drakes family!”
The Springwood Place Drakes Supermarket will also place an emphasis on fresh and local produce, and feature a rejuvenated food hub.
“In a rapidly growing area, we feel it’s important to give the people of Gawler a choice in who they get to spend their money with,” said Drakes Supermarkets Director, John-Paul Drake.
“Our new store will see a rejuvenated food hub, with our newest format store modelled on our learnings from our recently opened Salisbury North store.
“We’re working on a number of surprises for Springwood, with an even stronger focus on fresh foods in store, and we’ll maintain our commitment to stocking all the brands you know and trust, based on what our customers in the area want.”
In addition to the Drakes Supermarket, Springwood Place will offer approximately 1,500sqm in retail space available for up to an additional 15 specialty offerings such as cafes, pharmacy, medical, and other convenience-based retail.
