Product limits in Coles Victoria supermarkets

Coles is implementing a number of temporary measures to improve the availability of key food and grocery items in our Victorian supermarkets and to help our customers shop safely.

At all of our Victorian supermarkets, Coles team members are now greeting customers at the entrance to remind them to use the sanitising station, which includes hand sanitiser and disinfectant wipes for trolleys, before they enter.

Coles Group CEO Steven Cain said the health and safety of customers and team members remains Coles’ top priority.

“Following discussion with the Federal and Victorian governments as well as other retailers, Coles is implementing temporary purchase limits for our Victorian supermarkets to help us manage demand for key staple items,” he said.

“We ask that customers continue to shop normally so that everyone can have access to the food and groceries they need.”

The following purchase limits are now in place at all Coles supermarkets in Victoria, as well as Lavington, Albury and Deniliquin in NSW*:

Mr Cain said Coles team members were working hard to provide a safe shopping environment and keep shelves stocked for customers.

“We ask that customers continue to treat our team with respect and understanding and follow any requests or signs in store to keep a safe distance,” he said.

* Coles supermarkets in Lavington, Albury and Deniliquin NSW are replenished from our Victorian distribution centres.
