Western Australia’s first Coles Local opens in Perth

Coles has unveiled its first Coles Local supermarket in WA, featuring 485 different food, coffee, essentials, and speciality products from 45 of the local food and drink businesses.

Coles Local Angelo Street is situated in the heart of South Perth and features baked goods from Perth bakery Mary Street Bakery, coffee from Fremantle Coffee Roasters, honey by Postcode Honey, and locally fresh made pasta from La Cucina, amongst many others.

Jon Haggett, General Manager of Store Development at Coles, said the store has been tailored to Western Australian customers and celebrates the state’s passion for local produce.

“The Coles Local format offers our best innovations alongside a range tailored to the tastes and preferences of local communities, such as Perth. This local model allows us to source from small local businesses and expand their customer base through our network, trial a range of sustainability initiatives, while also continuing to deliver everyday essentials and great value you find at a traditional Coles supermarket.”

Angelo Chiellini, Store Manager at Coles Local Angelo Street, said locals have been eagerly awaiting the launch of the new store which will feature trolleys made from recycled plastic milk bottles and team member uniforms made of 65 per cent recycled plastic.

“We know customers are going to love the look and feel of Coles Local and the range of quality food we have sourced for the store. We’re proud to have 39 team members starting at Coles for the first time, working alongside an experienced team of over 80 team members.”

Paul Aron, Founder of Mary Street Bakery, whose donuts, sourdough, baguettes, and croissants will feature at Coles Angelo Street, said they’ve tried to find locations for their stores where they can entrench themselves into the fabric of the local community.

“We really like the synergy with Coles Local because of the way it champions local, and it will allow more customers to have access to our handmade products.”

The new store will also be donating $5000 to South Perth Primary School to establish a Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden program, encouraging students to adopt healthy eating habits.
