THE former Mitre 10 Trade building will soon be demolished, as part of the Barossa Co-op’s $25 million redevelopment.
The hardware store recently moved into the mall ahead of demolition, which is expected to begin at the site later this month.
The new supermarket is part of a 10-year strategic plan, which ensures the 70-year-old Co-op remains at the heart of Barossa retailing.
It is planned to build a new complex in the current parking area outside the Foodland store and in a reverse, eventually make the current store site the Barossa’s first undercover car park.
The Co-op chief executive officer Graeme Longmuir said the redevelopment, which is expected to create around 200 new jobs for the region, would be completed in 2018.
