Mike Shakes purchased a 750 square metre store in Atherton, in August 2000. Business success lead to growth and they built a new 2,700 square metre store in the current location in March 2009. They are proud to have retained many employees over the life of the business, and credit their success to that team dedication. Future plans include further floorspace expansion, to increase their already impressive product offering. According to the Shakes family, the best part of running the Fresh St Market IGA store, is having the freedom to make your own decisions when it comes to stock, store design and more.

The IGA Awards of Excellence acknowledge the dedicated efforts of the stores and their teams in their local communities. They herald the winning stores as setting the benchmark for the 1,400 other independent supermarkets across the IGA retail network. There are six regions in QLD. Each region nominates a supermarket for the above awards. One supermarket is named the winner in the aforementioned categories. The state winners are then nominated for the national award, competing against the other states. The national awards are judged on a range of criteria, including what the store is famous for, customer service, community contribution, department excellence, brand values, sales, profits, merchandising, shopper experience and the store’s overall performance. We’re proud to have been recognised with so many awards.
