Coles is smitten with a photo of a lack of social distance at a store’s self-service store.
The photo, taken at a Coles in Morayfield, 44 km north of Brisbane, showed two women standing at the same self-service checkout Tuesday at 3:30 PM.
The woman who took the photo shared the photo on social media and slammed the supermarket chain.
“Good to know that you only distance yourself socially if you’re not busy,” said the woman.
The photo, taken at a Coles in Morayfield, 44 km north of Brisbane, showed two women standing at the same self-service counter on Tuesday before 3:30 PM
‘Every second [checkout was] then the worker opens them all and everyone sits on top of each other. ‘
She said it was simply “not good enough.”
The customer said she had approached the assistant manager, who she said was unwilling to help.
The staff member said she would pass it on, but the customer was frustrated because the woman was clearly able to do something about it.
A Coles customer service representative told the shopper on Facebook that this issue had escalated.
A Coles spokesperson said, “Coles follows the recommendations of the Federal Ministry of Health as outlined in their latest COVID-19 supermarket hygiene practices, including measures to reduce close contact between customers and team members.
The Department of Health defines ‘close contact’ as personal contact for at least 15 minutes or in the same closed space for at least two hours.

“During busy periods, we open all self-scan checkouts so customers can complete their purchases faster and minimize the time spent in stores. We also encourage customers to plan their shopping trip in advance and shop alone where possible. ‘
A social media user said he saw similar scenes on Sunday at a Coles in Mount Druitt, west of Sydney.
‘The store was packed, certainly no social detachment. I used the self-service and the employee didn’t wipe them after every customer, ”she said.
Another said, “When did people stop taking responsibility for themselves.”
