Coolum residents and visitors can enjoy a new, fresh food shopping experience on Wednesday 14 September when the new 2,550m2 Coles Supermarket officially opens its doors at 8am.  The new store is located in the Coolum Shopping Village on Birtwill Street and marks an important milestone in the centre’s $8 million refurbishment program.  

Coles will be welcomed to the Village with a community BBQ breakfast (commencing at 7.30am) followed by a range of opening celebration activities. Coolum Shopping Village’s specialty retailers will join in the excitement with a range of special offers and giveaways of their own.

The full-line Coles supermarket will feature an in-store butcher, seafood, delicatessen, bakery, floral stand and fresh food ‘market stall’ fruit and vegetable area.  One-hundred and twenty full and part-time staff, led by local Sunshine Coast store manager Stuart Curtis, will serve customers.

Coolum Shopping Village’s centre manager, Julie Walter said that the Village would be “a hive of activity” for Coles’ opening day with celebrations continuing right through the first weekend of school holidays.  She encouraged locals to take advantage of the opening specials and to enjoy the improvements already made to the centre including the provision of 145 additional carparking bays, some shade sails (with more to come) and dual access from Birtwill and Margaret Streets.

“We welcome the arrival of Coles Supermarket and a new level of fresh, quality and convenient shopping at Coolum Shopping Village, Julie said.

“As we continue our refurbishment works, we look forward to announcing more new retailers and services soon to join the centre.  Along with our existing tenants, this will further cement the Village’s reputation as Coolum’s community hub.”

Coles Coolum Manager, Stuart Curtis said that he and his staff “couldn’t wait to open the doors” and aimed to deliver exceptional value on quality products across the store as well as support the local community.

“We’re confident that Coolum shoppers will love the new store and our extensive range of delicious fresh seafood, cheese, meat, fruit and vegetables – much of which is sourced locally.

“As well as employment opportunities, Coolum will benefit from Coles’ local and national community support programs some of which include Sports for Schools and Cancer Council Australia.”
