Coles offers freebies after store shutdown
Coles has offered its customers two freebies after an IT glitch caused supermarkets across the nation to be shut down temporarily on Friday afternoon.
The mass closure was caused by a technical issue with processing payments.
To make good, the supermarket giant will give triple Flybuys points for purchases made this weekend and free home delivery for orders over $50 until October 18.
"Coles supermarkets nationally have reopened for trade after a technical issue with our point-of-sale system meant we were briefly unable to process transactions on Friday afternoon," a Coles spokesperson said.
"Our supermarkets reopened on Friday evening, and the outage did not affect Coles Online, Coles Express or Coles Liquor.
"To thank customers for their patience while our team worked hard to get us back up and running, we're offering triple Flybuys points on food and groceries and at Liquorland this weekend.
"Coles Online is also offering free home delivery on orders of $50 and above until Sunday 18 October."
