Tran Veg­gies for Home Base

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Western Opinion -

FORMER Sta­tion Street Mar­kets gro­cer Tran Veg­gies will open a gourmet fresh food mar­ket at Home Base early next year, says Home Base gen­eral man­ager Gino Premici.

Mr Premici said long-term ten­ants Need­ham Air and Watershed would move to newer spa­ces at the cen­tre to make way for a 700sq m mar­ket called Grower’s Lane.

“It is go­ing through Coun­cil at the mo­ment, and they are hop­ing to open in Fe­bru­ary or March,” he said.

“They’re bring­ing in ser­vices like a baker, butcher, seafood shop and pre-made meals within the store and will be open seven days a week.

“Con­struc­tion mode should start in midNovem­ber.”

Mr Premici said the re­cently com­pleted Roy­d­house Street apart­ments were an in­cen­tive for Home Base to of­fer more ser­vices to as­sist nearby res­i­dents, in­clud­ing a hand-wash car wash.

“The de­signs are look­ing spec­tac­u­lar, the Tran Veg­gies team are re­ally ex­cited,” he said.

“It’s go­ing to be some­thing very dif­fer­ent to what they had at the Sta­tion Street Mar­kets, but still with that great fresh food of­fer­ing.”

Af­ter 31 years in Su­bi­aco, the Sta­tion Street Mar­kets closed on July 26.

The Metropoli­tan Re­de­vel­op­ment Author­ity ap­proved a $96 mil­lion Coles-Tar­get shop­ping precinct at the mar­ket site in April, which is cur­rently un­der con­struc­tion.
