seville's supermarket spears ahead

Earlier this week I had the great pleasure of attending the Grand Opening of the refurbished and extended IGA in Seville, Entwistle’s. It has been terrific to see this supermarket flourish and the Entwistle family have shown a huge commitment to the local community by spending $4.75million on renovations.

On a journey from Brunswick, to Boronia, to Kilsyth, to Seville, supermarkets are in the blood of the Entwistle family. Pictured here from left to right are: Jason Entwistle, Cr Samantha Dunn, Jenny Entwistle and Barry Entwistle.
Keen to support local food production, Entwistle’s spend $2million sourcing product from local growers in the Yarra Valley. The goods are delivered to the door in Seville and don’t come via the market in Melbourne, saving on transport costs and greenhouse gas emissions.

Entwistle’s are great supporters of the local community and via community sales have contributed $180,000 to local community groups. Independent supermarkets hold 15% of the marketplace and provide valuable competition. A great family supermarket, the benefit to the local community will continue to grow with them.
