New Coles Elsternwick supermarket to open in Q4 2019
Construction of the new Coles supermarket in Elsternwick Village is well underway, with the store set to reopen its doors in the fourth quarter of this year.
The old Coles Elsternwick store closed in October 2017 and has since been demolished to make way for a redeveloped supermarket with more than 200 carpark spaces, an open-style meat counter and in-store bakery.
The new supermarket will also be home to a market-style fresh produce area and a larger range of kosher and international products.
A Coles spokesperson said the new state-of-the-art supermarket would reopen in Q4 this year.
While Coles renovates their Elsternwick store, they have opened a Coles Express in the interim so locals can still buy staple groceries.
Located at 467 Glen Huntly Rd, at the corner of Beavis St, Coles Express offers grocery essentials like bread, milk, toilet paper and a range of kosher products.
The big picture
The new Coles supermarket is part of The Mark mixed-use development, which will include 173 residential units and a Liquorland store.
Developer Moniton enlisted architects Rothelowman and i2C to design the scheme, along with builder Hacer to oversee its construction.
Elsternwick residents can expect to see the project, located at 441-461 Glen Huntly Rd, to continue to rise out of the ground over the coming months after the builder completed the basement level last year.
What to do in the meantime
While the new store is being built, Coles is offering locals a range of shopping alternatives such as free home delivery.
Shoppers living in Elsternwick, Balaclava, Ripponlea, Elwood, Gardenvale and Caulfield can apply for free deliveries until the end of September this year.
