Welcome to IBIS

Islanders Board of Industry & Service (IBIS) supermarkets have been trading in the Torres Strait and NPA for over 115 years and has grown to 21 stores. From our largest supermarket located in the heart of Thursday Island, to our smallest store servicing Ugar (Stephen) Island, our commitment to keeping produce fresh and prices as low as possible is paramount.

Primarily providing communities a place to buy fresh fruit and vegetables, meat and groceries, IBIS stores also offer (but not limited to) general merchandise such as whitegoods and electrical appliances, housewares, furniture, clothing, power cards, fuel and gas.
