As of this Thursday, March 26, Coles Supermarkets are providing Health Care workers and Emergency Services with a dedicated period to shop.
On Tuesdays and Thursdays, the first hour of trade will be open to healthcare workeres.
These include hospital & ambulance staff, doctors, nurses, paramedics, police, and firefighters who hold an AHPRA card, have a workplace ID or are wearing their work uniform.
Coles supermarkets have also temporarily changed their trading hours to open 7am to 8pm on weekdays, with the first hour of trade on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays open exclusively to customers who hold a government-issued Pensioner Concession Card, Commonwealth Seniors Health Card, Companion Card and Health Care Card.
Coles Group CEO Steven Cain said the move will help even more Australians access the essential groceries they need.
“In the past week we have seen Community Hour help vulnerable and elderly Australians access essential grocery items during this challenging time. We are now extending this opportunity to those Australians who are protecting our community and keeping us safe,” Mr Cain said.
Supermarkets will also close no later than 8pm to give team members the time and space to extensively clean our stores and replenish the shelves for customers the next day.
