Foster’s Food Fair IGA and Dart Real Estate representatives broke ground at a new Foster’s store in Camana Bay Friday.

Foster’s Food Fair is scheduled to open the 60,000-square-foot store in November next year. Planning permission for the store was granted in September 2017.

Upon completion, the new Camana Bay store would be the largest Foster’s IGA location.

Once the new store opens, the Foster’s at the Strand and the smaller Bay Market in Camana Bay will be closed, Foster’s Managing Director Woody Foster has said previously.

  1. Not happy about the Strand location closing down. Would prefer that Fosters stay there.

    I’m sure Dart made an offer they couldn’t refuse. Smart move on his part to make all the condo shoppers on 7 mile beach travel to Camana Bay for their vittles.

    Smells like an opportunity for a Kirks…
