As many of you may know, a few months ago Hayden from IGA Queens gave us the news that after 17 years and 8 years managing the Queens store he was going to spread his wings and head out to try something new next year.

We’re going to miss the guy….alot.

BUT!!!! We can now share the exciting news that at the end of the year Symonde from Rigters IGA will be moving just 1.5km down the road to Queens to take on the role of Store Manager!

Anyone who knows Symonde, knows that she is passionate, friendly and loves putting new plans and concepts into place. In the time Symonde has been at Rigters she helped assist in the renovations of the store, implement the new deli, help roll out the Ready to go meal solutions and many other great concepts.

With this passion and drive we know that Symonde is the perfect person to step into Queens and continue to trial and implement new offers, ranges and concepts to give our customers a better shopping experience every year.

With this move happening our Team at Rigters needed a new leader!

And we are very pleased to announce that TANYA WHITEHOUSE is taking on this position!!

Tanya has been in the store for over two years now and has been the driving force behind the ready to go meals, deli improvements and fresh areas.

She has wealth of knowledge, a passion and drive unlike many others and is just one of the nicest people you have ever met!

Please join us in congratulating both Symonde and Tanya on her new roles! Whilst we are sad to say goodbye to Hayden, we’re excited to see where these lovely ladies take us in the future!
