A Coles spokes­woman said the store will close its doors on Fri­day, Oc­to­ber 12 at 6pm.

“Coles reg­u­larly re­views its port­fo­lio of su­per­mar­kets to en­sure we have the right stores in the right lo­ca­tions for our cus­tomers,” she said.

“We thank cus­tomers for their loy­alty to the Spear­wood store and want to as­sure the lo­cal com­mu­nity that we are com­mit­ted to of­fer­ing ser­vice at our nearby su­per­mar­kets at Beel­iar, South Lakes and Kardinya.

“So sad. My favourite shop. Some of the staff watched my chil­dren grow up and now I take my grandies there,” one wrote.

“Sad that it’s clos­ing… not too big, not too small, not overly crowded and won­der­ful staff; a good shop­ping ex­pe­ri­ence and so lo­cal to us, I’ve been shop­ping there since I was a kid with my par­ents,” said an­other.
