Work begins on new Coles at Kwinana Marketplace

WORK is underway on the development of a new Coles Supermarket at Kwinana Marketplace.

The redevelopment works will reconfigure the centre to add about 3500sq m of retail space and will include a new full line Coles and a new Liquorland.

This will complement the existing major retailers including Big W, Best & Less, The Reject Shop and Woolworths.

Kwinana Marketplace centre manager Rachel Roche said the new Coles Supermarket would give local shoppers choice and variety capable of servicing a rapidly growing population.

Kwinana Marketplace covers more than 29,216sq m of retail space, with the development expected to create 120 construction jobs and about 100 retail jobs.

The development is expected to attract new shoppers from surrounding suburbs Medina, Orelia, Parmelia and Leda.

The completion date for the new Coles addition will be late 2017.

Kwinana Marketplace is on Chisham Avenue, in the heart of the Kwinana Town Centre.
