Coles Group total group sales in Australia FY 2014-2019

Coles Group supermarkets recognized a total sales revenue of 38.17 billion Australian dollars during the 2019 financial year. Although this represents a slight decrease from the 2018 financial year, the company’s revenue has remained largely around this level since 2015.

Customer penetration and market share

   Coles group is one of the Australia’s largest and oldest supermarket chains, and in 2019 had the second largest customer penetration in the country, reaching 6.34 million households. Their main market rival, Woolworths Group, had a customer penetration of 7.2 million households, and German chain Aldi reached 4.76 million households. In the same year, Coles Group supermarkets took a 27.4 billion Australian dollar share of the total national grocery spend and Woolworths Group took 34 billion Australian dollars. Nearest rival Aldi took just over 12 billion Australian dollars.

Online grocery shopping 

   Online grocery shopping is attracting a significant level of interest in Australia. A 2018 survey revealed that 34 percent of Coles Group customers would be prepared to do their shopping online. The same share of Woolworths Group customers agreed, and 26 percent of Aldi customers did too. In a survey conducted in 2019, 61 percent of shoppers said they would do their shop online if shipping was made free. Just under 21 percent of those who had previously ordered groceries online said that they had done so for convenience reasons, and around 13 percent said they had bought online to save time.
