Contact for Developer and Coles

Melissa O'Neill,
Corporate Affairs Manager, Coles Supermarkets
has left Coles Myer any further email correspondence should be directed to:

Coles Customer Relations toll free number 1800 061 562

Have you voiced your opinion suggestions to Mr. Renaldo Gaiety ?
P.O. Box 403
Brighton Le Sands
NSW 2216

Phone: 95292575

Why is Mr. Renaldo not listening to the residents who have to live with this development? Why is no consideration given to the residents saying no to a supermarket. The intial draft plans at the public consultation were 1000sq metres then 1500 sq at the DA submitted in July 2004. Now we hear it is over 2000sq metres! When will it stop growing? Is greed getting in the way?

Is Coles Push Polling?

Coles is undertaking market research amongst Oatley residents to gauge the ‘Coles in Oatley' issue. A few people who have had calls and one suggested that the line of questioning was more like ‘push polling’.

This is a technique most commonly used by the political parties around election time. Under the guise of ‘market research’, the function of the polling is actually to persuade voters/residents to change their mind about an issue. In this case, the ‘leading’ questions ask about jobs created in the Oatley area by Coles – it’s hard to deny that the supermarket will create jobs, although very likely at the expense of a great deal more.

One of the concluding questions is whether the resident has changed their mind during the course of the survey, further indications that this is push polling rather than a true desire to read residents' support or opposition for the development.

If you are as incensed that Coles has now resorted to such an underhanded tactic to raise support for this unwanted development, then let both Gerry Masters or Melissa O’Neill know via email:

NoColes Picnic

"No Coles in Oatley" picnic in Oatley Memorial Gardens, organised by Oatley Residents Against Overdevelopment (ORAO) was a great community-together.

Up to 1,000 residents had a fun day, with activities to cater for the whole community:

* Colouring competition which is being sent to Coles for judging

* Face painting

* Giant pinata which the children enjoyed hitting Click Here to SEE MORE PHOTOS

* "The face of Coles" mask painting competition

* Ball in the hole (of Coles)

Those who attended were entertained by the fantastic music provided by the Georges River Band and members of the local community. Local businesses generously donated towards a monster raffle with over 50 prizes, enabling the group (ORAO) to have a fighting fund. The wonderful Oatley Lions Club generously manned BBQ.

The crowd was very enthusiastic. The atmosphere was very friendly.

Both Hurstville Mayor Joanne Morris and Kogarah Councillor Mark Coure spoke in support of the community’s actions. Both councils have provided assistance to this community effort.

The hugely successful day culminated in the formation of the words "No Coles" by locals attired in the distinctive and very popular "No coles in Oatley" T-shirts
