Cornetts is a family business, we opened our first store in Chermside (north of Brisbane) in 1973. We moved to Kippa Ring (Redcliffe) in 1976 and on to Bribie Island in 1978. We soon established ourselves as giving good value for money on quality product and in the early days served customers as far away as Ipswich.
Cornetts IGA at Bribie Island became the first scanning supermarket in Queensland in 1981. The store has been remodeled three times since the early days.
In 1995 a group of stores known as Denham's was purchased, giving us a total of eleven stores. Locations ranged from Bribie Island, through the coal belt of Central Queensland and as far west as Longreach.
