SUPPORT THE EXPANSION OF COOMERA EAST SHOPPING CENTRE’S WOOLWORTHS SUPERMARKET

Click here to have your say!

The developer of Coomera East Shopping Centre needs the community to support its application to have its Woolworths supermarket expanded from 2,000sqm to 3,000sqm. Below are just a few reasons why, with more detailed information available on the FAQ page.

Coomera is the fastest growing area on the Gold Coast, with Queensland Government research showing the population is expected to explode from 9,075 people (ABS census 2011) to some 63, 762 people by 2036.

The aim of expanding the Woolworths supermarket is to provide adequate amenity for this growing population. Woolworths’ own research and store modeling supports the fact that the current 2,000sqm supermarket will not be able to support the amount of stock required to effectively service a growing population over the medium to long term.

The provision of extra floor space will not only increase the variety of items available to customers, but will also lead to the creation of additional jobs and greater convenience for locals wanting a full-line supermarket at their doorstep.

Add your name, address and comments below to show your support for an upgraded Woolworths supermarket at Coomera East Shopping Centre.  Alternatively, you can visit our Facebook page to join in the conversation about this exciting new development

Please upgrade to a full size one! As we plan to stay here on this side of the highway and we do ALL our shoooing at Coomera east but we would love to see a much bigger variety & stock.

I think the current size and availability of products at the Woolworths is quite good. It is also small enough that it is a quick shop. I would very much prefer that it stays small and preserves the neighborhood feel.

It only makes sense to expand this store it should be a priority to finish it to its original plan Coomera is exploding in size so it's a no brainer.PS it looks fantastic what they have done so far C.H.

The offer at this store is only adequate. To fulfill shoppers needs there needs to be a full offer as to keep people shopping and living locally.

We need a Woolworths that makes its own breadrolls - the rolls at Coomera Eaast are like rocks so I either go to Oxenford or Upper Coomera. Please we also want South African foods. Also more selection of products. Other than that the staff are friendly and the store is lovely and clean.

I have just moved to the Genesis estate and was happy to have Woolies so close. But on my first visit I found they don't stock 2 items that I buy every week so I won't be shopping there until they upgrade.

With the limited stock currently held at this one it is a pain if you need to go to another woolies to finish your ahopping. It needs to be bigger for now and the future.

New to the area and am finding the shops very frustrating. With all the growth happening this side of the highway I dont understand why we dont have a full size woolies. I have gone in 3 times since its opened and been told sorry we dont stock those items. Now I just go to the other one over the highway to save the hassle.

This side of the freeway is getting bigger and bigger, we really need a full sized Woolies on this side of the freeway. With the traffic as bad as it is at the moment trying to get across is a pain. Great idea, hope they enlarge soon.

With the rapid expanding of Coomera, we just need a big Woolworth with all the stocks. So local resident does not need to travel to another Woolworth to find stocks.

We have no supermarkets (like Woolworths or Coles) this side of the motorway.... There are so many people living down Foxwell Road ... and more going to move down this area.. either we have a bigger Woolworths (which I might add is great....about time) or another one (or more) further down Foxwell Road ... We are Woolworths shareholders so think you will realize what a gold mine you will have with your store ... or stores ... down Foxwell Road. Thanks

We have so much growth in his area and need a big supermarket on this side of the highway. It would certainly be good for business. People are busy and will go elsewhere if they need to do a big shop and can't get all they need there.

Definetely need a full line Woolworths on our side of the highway. The Woolworths at Pimpama is a major disappointment, we still travel to the Coomera Woolies on the other side to get our groceries. There is certainly going to be enough homes to support a larger Woolies in the very near future....

Great to have another full line Woolworths in the area. Pimpama and Ormeau are great but don't necessarily stock everything. Also great for the local community generating more jobs for our youth who are seeking part-time work as well as new jobs for locals seeking full time work. Can't wait for it to open next year :)

I offer my full support in expanding the Woolworths to a full line. I've worked in the shopping centre management industry for 12 years and had this issue at one of my previous centres in Brisbane where only a 2,000m2 store was built and it over traded from the beginning. I hope Woolworths also look at a pad site for a service station too as there are no service stations on the Eastern side of the M1.

A larger supermarket would definitely be great for the community. I just hope there's enough parking to support this larger supermarket and the road infrastructure is suitable. The Woollies at Ormeau has sufficient parking but getting in and out of the place is a nightmare.

A bigger Woolworths would be fantastic! With all the development around the Coomera area, we do need a bigger Woolworths. The Pimpama Woolworths does not stock all items, very frustrating when you drive there with the hope they will have the item you want, not a bad store, just don't stock all items. That means I won't do my big weekly shop at that branch, only if it is a bread or a milk. Please, please ;)

Living in Coomera for the last 8 years, we already have to travel all the way to Helensvale Westfield as both current local Woolworths (Pimpama and Coomera City) do not stock a wider range of stock which we buy for our growing family. It would be nice and convenient if all of us residents in the Coomera district didn't have to add to already congested traffic by having a fully stocked Woolworths store in our area. Thanks

As a resident of East Coomera, I support the development of a full sized supermarket in the Coomera East Shopping Centre. As well as boosting employment opportunities, it will reduce the need for car travel to other locations further afield to access full line supermarket products. With existing/approved full line supermarkets in all other local areas of West Coomera, Central Coomera and Pimpama, if this increased size is not approved, residents of East Coomera will be disadvantaged and continue to have additional expense and create unnecessary traffic congestion in order to have access to a full range of supermarket products.

Please upgrade the Woolworths to a full sized store. We are in desperate need of a large scale food store on the Eastern side and the Woolies at Pimpama is just tiny and has not got a full range requiring us to make the journey to a Woolworths further away across the highway to do our shopping, which is extremely disappointing. We are such a huge area and are only getting bigger and becoming more populated day by day, so we really need this in our area. We have been waiting for a supermarket a very long time.
