Just before the new store launch, changes at Coles Morayfield were revealed with speeches, cake and a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the store in Morayfield Shopping Centre.

New features include an open-front bakery and DIY bread slicer, orange juice station, dessert bar and refreshed deli with seafood and grab-and-go meals.

“We’ve received plenty of positive feedback from customers who are loving the fresh coat of paint, new floors and easy-to-navigate signage, with the whole team proud to be able to offer a new experience to Morayfield residents,” store support manager Kerry Smith.

This also followed the opening of Coles Caboolture Big Fish store on Pumicestone Rd where 28 staff members have come through the supermarket’s Indigenous pre-employment training program, which provides six months mentoring.
