In Australia, what kind of store is Coles?


Coles is a chain of supermarkets in Australia. As one of Australia's iconic retail stores, Coles has been in business since 1914.

Founded by George Coles as a variety store in the Collingwood area of Melbourne, Coles expanded throughout Melbourne over the course of the next four decades.

It was in 1958 when Coles acquired a number of grocery stores and entered the food retailing business that the chain's growth began to accelerate. The first supermarket version of Coles was opened in Balwyn North, and by 1973 there were Coles supermarkets in every territory and in every capital city in Australia.

By 2014 Coles had grown to 741 stores across the country; second only to Woolworths in the supermarket sector. Now owned by Wesfarmers Ltd., Coles employs over 100,000 Australians.
