Supermarkets to stay open 24 hours during the Games

TWO dozen supermarkets across the Gold Coast will keep their doors open all day and all night during the Commonwealth Games.

The city’s population is expected to double during the Games, with more than 6600 athletes and officials and tens of thousands of spectators to descend on the Coast.

In order to keep up with demand and cater for tourists, athletes and locals, 24 select Woolworths and Coles stores will trade 24 hours a day from April 3 to April 17.

Supermarkets at the Q Super Centre at Mermaid Waters will also trade all day and all night.

Thirty-two other smaller Coles and Woolworths stores right across the Coast will trade from 6am, until midnight.

These include stores at Pimpama, Coomera and Upper Coomera, Oxenford, Pacific Pines, Ashmore, Nerang, Mudgeeraba, Robina, Burleigh Heads and Benowa.
