Parton’ s IGA on Uduc Road in Harvey opened its new delicatessen this week as part of extensive renovations.

The revamp has been in the pipeline for two years but was unable to go ahead due to recent ceiling work.

“We have just started on the service deli and it is going absolutely amazing, in two months’ time we should have the entire store looking brand new,” IGA Parton’s owner John Parton said.

Mr Parton and his wife Kim have been in business for 25 years and have always aspired to own a five-star store.

“After the landlord fixed the ceiling we saw the opportunity to gut the store and give it a long overdue face lift.

“Re-investing in your business is vital, if we can do the best we can we can keep people shopping in Harvey and keep local businesses running.”

Mr Parton said the revamp had been a learning curve for him and his wife.

“Trends in food and shopping have changed drastically over the last 20 years,” he said.

“Customers are coming into the store and making decisions on what they want to cook for dinner on the night rather than doing one big shop for the week.

“We’ll be tackling the fresh fruit and vegetable section next and have some interesting ideas and plans that we are really looking forward to,” Mr Parton said.
