A supermarket is destined for the former St Mary's School
site in Mosgiel.
Progressive Enterprises Ltd strategy and corporate affairs
general manager Richard Manaton yesterday confirmed the site
had been bought by General Distributors Ltd for the purpose
of building a new Countdown supermarket to replace the
present Mosgiel store.
''We will be applying for resource consent shortly, and when
we have that process complete we will then be able to advise
of the details, i.e. timings and proposed store size.
''The current store will remain open during construction.''
