THE wait is almost over for Wonthaggi residents with a new Coles to open next week as a part of the new Wonthaggi Plaza shopping centre development on Biggs Drive. Coles will officially open the doors to its latest look supermarket on Wednesday, December 5, bringing more than 60 jobs to the local community. In all there will be 110 staff on the roster, including 50 from the existing store. With a fresh new look, modern interior and exciting new features, customers will love the store’s new market-style layout, which will emphasise convenience and value, offering an exceptional shopping experience, spanning over 4000 square metres. Store manager, David Siutryk, who has been with Coles for 16 years, is looking forward to opening day when local shoppers can come in and experience the brand new store’s fresh offerings and great service. “Our shoppers have told us what they look for in a shopping experience and we think they’ll love the results. I’m sure we will have the whole town talking about our new store,” David said. “We’ll be displaying fresh produce on ice, ensuring shoppers take home the highest quality fruit and vegetables every time they shop. “We will provide an entirely new shopping experience with a market-style layout, in store butchers and bakers, and a range of other exciting features designed to make shopping a breeze. “Customers will also be able to pick up fresh grab and go curries, alongside our big range of fresh fish and seafood, as well as a specialty cheese range. Plus our team of four bakers will be baking fresh bread, rolls cakes and pastries in store every day. “We’ve created something really special for our customers, giving them a new shopping option in Wonthaggi. The store team are really excited about the store and we’re counting down the days until the opening. I hope that our south Gippsland shoppers are just as keen to see the new store when it’s unveiled next week”, David said. Coles Wonthaggi is located in the Wonthaggi Plaza Shopping Centre, 2 Biggs Drive, Wonthaggi.
