Port Adelaide Plaza is setting the stage for a major retail revolution, bringing in the big guns with Australia’s largest Woolworths supermarket and a brand-new Big W store.

This exciting development emerges from a collaboration between Woolworths Group and Precision Group, spearheaded by Shaun Bonett, marking a significant milestone in the plaza’s evolution.

Following a $75 million redevelopment phase, the plaza is adding these major retailers to its roster. The Woolworths store, set to open in early 2025, aims to offer an unmatched shopping experience, taking over a previous Coles location and transforming it into a sprawling supermarket space.

Meanwhile, Big W is making a comeback to South Australia with its first store since 2015, promising to fill the space left by Kmart with a wide selection of goods, from home essentials to entertainment, by the end of 2024.

These developments are a boon for Port Adelaide, highlighting the area’s growing appeal as a retail and lifestyle hub. Shaun Bonett, the visionary behind Precision Group, expresses enthusiasm for drawing more visitors to the plaza and enriching the community’s shopping landscape.

“We’re delighted that Woolworths Group has committed to growing its presence in South Australia with Precision Group. It’s a real vote of confidence in Port Adelaide Plaza’s underlying strength and future potential.” he said.

“Our strategic focus is always to attract more people to Port Adelaide Plaza – delivering new and everyday shopping experiences that make people want to come and spend their time with us. We’re looking forward to celebrating the opening of these two brand-new stores with our Port Adelaide customers in the near future.”

Port Adelaide Plaza’s transformation into a vibrant retail precinct is part of a broader vision to cater to the community’s diverse needs. With the inclusion of Aldi and over 60 specialty retailers, the plaza has become a go-to destination for shopping, dining, and entertainment.

The anticipation around the opening of these new stores reflects the positive momentum in Port Adelaide’s retail scene. As the plaza continues to evolve, it’s poised to offer an array of shopping experiences that cater to the tastes and preferences of its growing population.

“It’s a great opportunity for Woolworths Group to service the community of Port Adelaide with two brand new shopping experiences from both Woolworths Supermarkets and Big W.

“Based upon current detailed floorplans, it is our vision to deliver one of the largest Woolworths Supermarkets in Australia at Port Adelaide Plaza when it opens in early 2025,” said Bonett.

With the plaza’s strategic location and the addition of flagship stores like Woolworths and Big W, Port Adelaide is on track to become a bustling retail hotspot.
