Construction underway at Coles Express
CONSTRUCTION is well underway at the site of a new Coles Express at the Whitsunday Shopping Centre in Cannonvale.
In February 2014, Coles announced its proposal to build a retail petrol station in Cannonvale, providing residents and motorists travelling in the area with even greater convenience.
Work started on the site formerly occupied by the Zumba Whitsunday building on Friday, July 25.
A spokesperson for the project said construction of the Coles Express would mean employment of up to 20 local tradespeople with the creation of about eight local jobs on completion in October.
“This new Coles Express location will not only offer our local customers an alternate fuel option with four pumps but also access to convenience products in our store,” the spokesperson said.
Unleaded petrol, diesel, V-Power and unleaded 95 will all be available and the new site will have four fuel pumps, with hoses either side so customers have access to eight filling positions. The Coles Express shop will sell cold drinks, confectionary, snacks, milk, bread, magazines and tobacco.
