WALGETT WELCOMES NEW SUPERMARKET 18 MONTHS AFTER FIRE

The Walgett community is celebrating the opening of a brand-new I-G-A supermarket.

The town’s former grocery store was destroyed by fire 18 months ago.

Since then, residents have been relying on a temporary, pop-up shop with limited items – or have instead been forced to travel up to 80 kilometres for the essentials.

The new store features a range of additional goods including hardware, children’s toys and stationery.
