For over 90 years, Coles has had a rich history in Australia. Founder, George Coles, was the son of a storekeeper and a key influence on Australia’s early retail history. He travelled to the United States in the early 1900s to observe retail best practice, and returned to Australia in 1914 to open the first Coles Variety Store in Smith Street, Collingwood, Melbourne. The stores grew in number and were soon famous for their slogan ‘Nothing over 2/6’, quickly becoming leaders in providing value to Australian shoppers.

In 1960, the first Coles supermarket was opened in North Balwyn, Melbourne and by 1973 the company had achieved its aim of establishing a supermarket in every Australian capital city.

Today we’re proud to continue in this strong tradition as a leader in Australian food retailing. Coles currently employs over 100,000 passionate team members, who collectively service over 18 million customer transactions each week.
