Coles is set to shut one of its two Murray Bridge stores within the month.
Following weeks of speculation it has been confirmed that the Mannum Road Coles is set to shut on Sunday, June 30.
The closure of the Coles store follows the path of Woolworths in having only one store in the region after Woolworths closed its Murray Bridge Green store in 2018. A Coles spokesperson said that the decision to close the store was prompted by the forthcoming expiry of the lease on the Mannum Road store, as well as the opening of the nearby Murray Bridge Green store in 2015.
"We are working with team members on opportunities for redeployment to other stores in Coles portfolio."
There are now two IGA supermarkets, and one each of Woolworths, Coles, Drakes Supermarket and ALDI.
