Perth, Australia, 2017-Jun-22 — /EPR Retail News/ — Coles has created 115 new local jobs at Epping North with the unveiling of its milestone 800th supermarket at Aurora Village on Wednesday, 21 June.

Epping North was selected as the location for the milestone 800th supermarket in Australia after Coles’ 103 year history. In addition to the 115 new recruits, 25 team members will transfer from other Coles stores in the area, bringing the total team to 140.The new market-style supermarket will feature an in-store bakery with flatbread made daily, a continental delicatessen with a large selection of cheese and fresh seafood, and a meat counter with a slice-on-request service.

The new store will also feature a self-service olive bar, ‘Scoop and Weigh’ station and an extensive fresh produce area with fruit and vegetables displayed on ice.

Store Manager Ranjith Fernando is excited to introduce the store and its new features to local residents and support the local Epping North community.

“The whole team can’t wait to show off the new shopping experience to the local community. Our service will extend beyond the checkout, with the store committed to supporting a range of causes close to the hearts of customers and team members,” he said.

The team at Aurora Village will support the Epping North Scout Group by hosting activities and dinner at the Galada Community Centre and donating a trailer later this month, as well as supplying sport shirts for students at Harvest Home Primary School.

“As a store, we’re committed to being involved with the local community and working with Epping North Scout Group and Harvest Home Primary School are just two ways we’re getting involved. We look forward to being more involved with the local Epping North community throughout the year,” Ranjith said.

Coles at Aurora Village is located at 329A Harvest Home Rd, and will open from 6 am to 12 pm seven days a week.

Cards bought at Coles can be exchanged for Coles gift cards

Melbourne, Australia, 2016-01-13 — /EPR Retail News/ — Coles is offering assistance to those customers who purchased Dick Smith Electronics gift cards at Coles Supermarkets prior to DSE being placed into administration.

While Coles has already passed on the sale proceeds of the gift cards to Dick Smith Electronics, as a gesture of goodwill to our customers we will exchange valid, unredeemed Dick Smith Electronics gift cards purchased at Coles from 1 July, 2015 for Coles gift cards of equal value.

The offer is only open to customers with proof of purchase showing the gift cards were purchased at Coles.

To take up this offer, our customers are invited to call our Customer Care line on 1800 061 562 to obtain a redemption form, which will also be made available on the coles.com.au website.

Customers can then post the completed form, along with the unredeemed Dick Smith Electronics gift cards and proof of purchase, to the Coles Store Support Centre by February 29.

Coles has also written to the administrators of Dick Smith Electronics urging them to honour outstanding gift cards, some of which were purchased as Christmas gifts as part of a 10% bonus promotion Dick Smith Electronics initiated on gift card sales in December.

Coles withdrew Dick Smith Electronics gift cards from sale as soon as we were informed the company had been placed into voluntary administration.
