German supermarket giant breaks ground on first Australian stores

One of the world’s largest retailers, Kaufland, has broken ground today to commence construction of its first South Australian supermarket in Prospect, their first outside of Europe.

The multi-million-dollar development, on a 24,000sqm vacant site, will feature a Kaufland supermarket, food hall, outside dining area and support tenancies.

The company has also secured planning approval for another Adelaide store on the former Le Cornu site on Anzac Highway at Forestville and has another development application currently being assessed.

The Prospect store will initially operate as a testing facility to train staff, practise processes and trial proposed concepts. Construction of the Prospect store is due to be completed in late 2020.
