A bag of ice at best price

Whitsunday Times - - BUSINESS -

A NEW fresh ice vend­ing ma­chine is now avail­able in Cannonvale on Shute Har­bour Road at ABC Glass, op­po­site Home Hard­ware.

The Kooler Ice vend­ing ma­chine is a joint ven­ture be­tween Lind­say Camp­bell and ABC Glass owner Al­lan Connell.

Mr Camp­bell has op­er­ated Proser­pine Auto Air for the last 18 years and in­tro­duced the first Kooler Ice ma­chines two years ago at two con­ve­nient lo­ca­tions in Proser­pine and Ju­bilee Pocket.

He said Kooler Ice was great value for money with cus­tomers get­ting more ice for the price than any­where in the Whit­sun­days.

The rev­o­lu­tion­ary ma­chine is open 24 hours a day, of­fer­ing 7kg of bagged solid cubed party ice for $4 and 15L of pu­ri­fied wa­ter for $4.

“The key point is that the wa­ter is triple fil­tered and UV treated, so it is one of the best sources of pu­ri­fied wa­ter in the re­gion,” Mr Camp­bell said.

“Ice is made fresh on­site us­ing pu­ri­fied wa­ter and con­structed in solid cubes that last longer in our trop­i­cal cli­mate.”

The state-of-the-art vend­ing ma­chine reg­u­larly de­frosts ice that hasn’t been sold, re­filter­ing it be­fore mak­ing fresh ice.

The Kooler Ice ma­chine is re­li­able and easy to use with a step-bystep guide on the front of the ma­chine for first­time users.

Cus­tomers sim­ply put their money in, press a but­ton and wait as the ma­chine de­liv­ers and bags fresh ice within 30 sec­onds.

Mr Camp­bell said zip ties were avail­able from the dis­penser on the ma­chine, oth­er­wise cus­tomers could sim­ply load the bag straight into their own esky.

The ma­chine ac­cepts $5, $10 and $20 notes and all coins ex­cept five cent pieces.

Mr Camp­bell in­vites lo­cal res­i­dents to ex­pe­ri­ence the dif­fer­ence of solid, cubed ice now avail­able in one con­ve­nient lo­ca­tion in Cannonvale, 24 hours a day.
