Woolworths is planning to refresh the existing supermarket in Avalon to create a new Woolworths Metro store at 74 Old Barrenjoey Rd, Avalon Beach.

The new Woolworths Metro Avalon will use the existing store to deliver a fresh food store designed to meet the needs of the local community.

 The store’s existing size is consistent with other Metro locations that generally range from 250sqm – 1500sqm. Metro stores are Woolworths' small fresh food stores, offering a fresh, local and easy shopping experience with each Metro store tailored to the community it serves.

Once the refurbishment is complete, the store will offer:


Increased range of fresh in-season fruit and veg

  • With a focus on sourcing from Australian suppliers, the store will have a larger variety of fresh, in-season and organic fruit and vegetables to choose from. 


Fresh Bakery range

  • Fresh Bakery range with everyday breads and exciting new ranges of breads, speciality loaves, rolls, as well as sweet and savoury bakery snacks from local suppliers.

Increased range of fresh ingredients and meals

  • From more fresh, quality ingredients from local suppliers, to health foods and hot meals to go. We’ll also be extending the range of premium seafood, organic beef and poultry.

Entertaining destination for locals

  • Significantly expanded range of local and international entertaining cheeses, crackers, gourmet dips, antipasto, condiments, sliced meats and seafood.

More local specialities

  • More local speciality products, sourced from local suppliers - like free range eggs from Holbrook Paddock, Wood Fired Coffee and Arlington's Dairy, all produced in the Northern Beaches.

Increased sustainability focus 

  • We know sustainability and reducing plastic waste are important issues for Avalon residents, so you’ll notice a number of new initiatives in the new look store, including less plastic packaging throughout the store as well as loose pick tomatoes and potatoes in fruit and veg.

Customer safety

  • As part of the refurbishment, Woolworths will improve the shopping experience with wider grocery aisles, a new checkout area layout and COVID safe shopping initiatives, such as the convenient Scan & Go contactless shopping solution.



Woolworths will continue standard operating hours from 7am to 9pm daily, with team access one hour either side of those times.



While Metro stores in CBD locations provide a wide-range of ready-to-go snacks and meal solutions, our neighbourhood Metro food stores offer a fresh, local and easy shopping experience.  Each Metro store is tailored to the needs of the community it serves.

We will be implementing our latest sustainability initiatives into the store, such as LED lighting, options to use  cardboard boxes instead of plastic bags for shopping and reducing our energy consumption with upgraded refrigeration technology.



Due to open mid 2022,  the store will be closed from 2 May to 31 July 2022 for a three-month construction period. 


We thank the community for their patience during this period.
