Coles creates 75 new jobs at new supermarket at Amaroo

Coles has created 75 jobs at its new Amaroo supermarket, which will officially open its doors to the community on Wednesday, 8 February.

23 January 2017

The new recruits will join 30 team members who have transferred from existing Coles stores in the area. Significantly, the opening marks the beginning of an exciting journey for nearly a third of the recruits who will be starting their very first job with Coles.

Coles Amaroo Store Manager Anna Spear started her career at Coles straight after finishing high school and she has been working with the supermarket for the last 11 years, having previously worked at Jamison, Gungahlin, Belconnen and Tweed City.

“We’re thrilled to have provided so many local residents with their first-ever job and hope it might be their first step in a great, rewarding career in retail.

“We are extremely proud of the new Amaroo supermarket and can’t wait to welcome our customers through the doors on opening day,” she said.

Coles Amaroo will be celebrating the opening of the new supermarket by welcoming much-loved duo, Cookie and Chris from last year’s My Kitchen Rules in-store. They will be performing cooking demos using Coles fresh produce during opening week from Wednesday, 8 February to Sunday, 12 February.

Features of the new supermarket include a fresh produce department with an extensive range of fruit and vegetables, an open meat counter with two qualified butchers as well as a continental delicatessen that offers a variety of local and international cheese and a ‘slice-on-request’ service.

Customers will also enjoy a new in-store bakery, offering a ‘naked bread’ option that allows shoppers to pick and wrap products themselves.

In addition, there will be a dedicated health food precinct that features a ‘scoop and weigh’ bar, providing the option for shoppers to select, weigh and pack their own seeds, nuts and dried fruits from more than 70 available options.

Coles Amaroo is located at 11 Pioneer St, Amaroo - just off Katherine Ave.
