Coles Newport had changed their opening hours from 7.00am to 8.00am in the morning impinging on the service available to the Newport community. The NRA have discussed the matter with the store Manager.
The Manager advised the change had been brought about due to complaints from the occupants of the same building and the noise of trolleys being wheeled about to repack shelves. For the staff to open the store they are required to be there one hour before opening meaning with a 7.00am opening hour staff would be working from 6.00am and any noise commencing at that time.

The NRA requested the Manager to review the situation once more and anecdotally it appears the store is now opening at 7.30am
