COLES has given a boost to the Epping North economy after the supermarket giant unveiled its new store in Aurora Village.
The store will be the 800th Coles supermarket in Australia and will create 115 jobs.
The new market-style supermarket will feature an in-store bakery, a continental delicatessen and a meat counter.
The store will also feature a self-service olive bar, scoop and weigh station and an extensive fresh produce area.
Store manager Ranjith Fernando said he was excited to introduce the store and its new features to residents and to support Epping North.
“The whole team can’t wait to show off the new shopping experience to the local community,” Mr Fernando said.
“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.”
The team at Aurora Village will support the Epping North Scout Group by hosting activities and dinners 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.
Coles marked the opening with a ceremony attended by celebrity chef Curtis Stone and singer Casey Donovan.
