Klose’s Supermarket Woodside
The existing Klose’s Supermarket in Woodside had become small and outdated, so we were tasked with designing a more appropriate facility. Just down the road – also in Woodside – the new premises will include a supermarket and bottle shop. It has Planning Consent from Council, and we’re currently working through the remaining approvals. The new Klose’s Supermarket is expected to open in 2019.
Our Involvement: Design, Town Planning, Landscape Design, Project Management, Cost Control
Klose’s Supermarkets are owned and operated by Adelaide Hills family, the Klose’s, who have been operating supermarkets in the area since 1902.
The Klose family have a strong community focus, and this was recognised when Barry Klose was awarded an Order of Australia Medal in 2015 – for service to the community. The superamarkets have a strong focus on sourcing local products and produce.
The Klose’s have supermarkets in Lobethal, Woodside, Balhannah, Littlehampton (which we designed), and Birdwood; with another opening in Nairne (which we are also designing). This size makes them a major employer in the Adelaide Hills – currently employing 240 staff.
