Coles Busselton Central opened on November 28 and the team used the opportunity to show the supermarket’s continued support of Geographe Primary School.
The store supplied the school’s ‘Breakfast Club’, with a hamper and $1000 worth of vouchers to purchase groceries for the program.
The program runs twice a week and provides nutritious breakfasts to its students who may not receive a morning meal at home. It also acts as a social session, with around 60 students regularly in attendance.
The new Coles has created 83 jobs in Busselton.
The market-style supermarket will also welcome an additional 35 team members who are transferring from other Coles stores in the area, bringing the total team to 118.
Coles Busselton Central store manager Melissa Smith, who has worked with Coles across the state’s South West for 13 years, said she was looking forward to sharing the new store features with the community.
“We know there is demand for a new and convenient shopping destination in Busselton, and we’re excited to deliver our customers great quality products and exceptional customer service in a convenient and contemporary store,” she said.
The store features include an in-store bakery with freshly-baked bread and a ‘naked bread’ range.
The store’s continental delicatessen section will stock a large selection of cheeses and its seafood department will be brimming with WA seafood.
The store also includes an in-store butcher.
Coles at Busselton Central is located at 30 Kent Street, Busselton and will open from 8am to 9pm Monday to Sunday.
