UPDATED: The former Bin Inn building on the corner of Grace and Ness Sts in Invercargill has been transformed into The Pantry and is now open for business.

After months of preparation, planning, painting and shelf stocking – The Pantry opened on Monday (May 8) to the public, with the official opening scheduled to take place tomorrow (May 13) at 9.30am.

The Pantry sells specialty groceries, bulk and whole foods and has a barista coffee counter which is open during the week from 7.30am.

The second phase of the build, expected to begin next month, will include providing a community area for meetings, socialising and events, as well as a South Alive office and outdoor areas.

Koha Kai will eventually house its new commercial  working kitchen in the middle of the store, which will also host demonstrations and cooking classes.

Since 2012 South Alive’s achievements have included revamping the South City shopping area, Invercargill’s first dog park, community gardens and the “Tale of Southland” sculpture.

The South Alive team are close to reaching its funding target for The Pod – which included The Pantry, and are now looking for local businesses to come on board as sponsors.

A public meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, May 31 at The Pantry from 6.30pm-8.30pm, it is a chance for the public to hear what South Alive has been up to and the future of The Pod. Nibbles and refreshments will be provided.

Contact the South Alive office on 2186882 for more details about business sponsorship and visit givealittle.co.nz/cause/thepod to donate to the cause.
