The premises of an Albury supermarket is set to change hands next month. East Albury IGA’s site on Borella Road will be auctioned off by commercial agency Burgess Rawson in collaboration with the Border’s LJ Colquhoun Dixon Real Estate at Melbourne’s Crown Casino on August 3.

The sale includes a renewed seven-year lease until 2028 with the independent supermarket. East Albury IGA owner Bob Mathews said it won’t impact the business.

“We’re still here, we’ll just have a new landlord,’ he said.

“You can’t get rid of us that easy. I’m 72 now, I’ve still got years to go.

“It’s probably a bit expensive for us to look at buying.’

Meanwhile, two homes north of the Border will go under the hammer today. Stean Nicholls Real Estate will attempt to sell a five-bedroom central Albury home on Jones Street, while Georgette Nehme Real Estate has a four-bedroom offering at Springdale Heights on Dillagar Place.
