Sneak Peek at the new Coles Lane Cove in the Canopy

Let the Lane Cove Supermarket wars begin!!

Coles Lane Cove The Canopy Opens 8 July 2020

The brand new, state of the art, Coles Supermarket will open at The Canopy at 8.30 am tomorrow (8 July 2020).  For a long time, Lane Cove locals have wanted a larger Coles Supermarket (like the Crows Nest or Chatswood stores). We now have it.  The new Coles Supermarket is bigger than the Crows Nest Coles opened last year.

Freshly Made Flatbread

You will be impressed with the much larger store, which features a market-style produce hall, a new open bakery with freshly flipped flatbread, a gourmet deli with olive bar and expanded cheese selection.

Large Ready to Eat Range

Research undertaken by Coles found one in three customers don’t have the time to cook from scratch, and 52 per cent are not interested in cooking more at home, with chopping and cutting regarded as their biggest pain points with meal prep.  This has prompted Coles to install a large ready to eat range in the new store.

Cakes to Go

The Lane Cove store has a much bigger “celebration” cake section. If you want a birthday cake, you can now choose from themed cakes like the butterfly cake, unicorn cake or get ready to decorate your own.


80 News Lane Cove Jobs

Coles Lane Cove Store Manager Andrew Kloczko, who has worked at Coles for more than ten years, said he was thrilled to be involved in the new store opening.  Andrew is a bit of an “old hand” when it comes to opening new stores as he was in charge of the Crows Nest store opening.

Andrew was thrilled to be able to offer employment to all the staff at the old Burns Bay store and to offer jobs to more than 80 people who live in the immediate area.  When ITC toured the store, we saw three local Lane Cove students being trained on the checkout.
