Coles supermarkets unable to open on time on Sunday morning due to nationwide error.

A technical issue affecting cash registers has reportedly forced several Coles supermarkets to close across Australia.

A number of stores on Sunday morning posted notices on their doors about the outage, including in Sydney, Melbourne and the Gold Coast, according to posts on social media.




Just after 10am, a spokeswoman for Coles released a statement confirming its supermarkets were now open.

“Earlier this morning we had some minor IT problems in some of our supermarkets which were out of our team members’ control.

“We apologise for any inconvenience our customers experienced earlier this morning.”
