Coles has increased the size of DROPPED & LOCKED 2 while simultaneously reducing the availability of over 300 necessary products until after Easter.

January 17, 2023

Coles has reaffirmed its dedication to assisting Australian household budgets in stretching further and providing customers with important price reassurance by announcing that it will drop and lock the price of more than 300 new items beginning on January 18 and continuing until after the Easter weekend on April 11, 2023. This price reduction and price locking will take place in both supermarkets and online.

DROPPED&LOCKED’s second phase features twice as many products as its first phase did, including well-known brands like Kellogg’s, Kleenex, L’Oreal, Morning Fresh, Gillette, Uncle Toby’s, Four N Twenty, Arnott’s, Steggles, McCain, Carman’s, and Cold Power, in addition to a selection of Coles’ Own Brand items.

Leah Weckert, the Chief Executive Officer of Coles Commercial and Express, stated that the extensive list of popular products will assist Australian households in saving money when entertaining guests during the summer, preparing for the start of the school year, and planning nutritious meals for the middle of the week, all the way up until the long Easter weekend.

“We understand that many Australian households are feeling the pinch following the holiday season, and by lowering and locking the price of hundreds of popular and essential items, we are honouring our commitment to assist Australian budgets in going further,” Leah said. “We hope that this will help Aussie budgets go further.”

According to what she had to say, “This latest round of DROPPED&LOCKED doubles the number of products compared to the first phase of the campaign, and we’re certain that this extension will save Australians millions of dollars over the coming months.”

According to the results of a survey that included more than 7,500 customers of Coles, 82% of respondents are modifying the way they shop for groceries as a response to the rising cost of living. 57% are increasing their use of coupons, 51% are increasing the amount of meals they prepare at home, and 55% are decreasing their consumption of sweets. 1.

In October 2022, Coles decreased and then locked the prices of 150 of the most popular products in households. All of these will continue to be DROPPED&LOCKED until the 31st of January, but certain ones, like free-range chicken breast, beef sizzle steak, and no hormone beef sandwich steak, will also be extended at a lower price until the 11th of April, 2023.

In addition to DROPPED&LOCKED, Coles will continue to provide customers with thousands of new weekly specials, as well as the ever-popular Flybuys points, which can also be redeemed for cash discounts.

Because of the overlap in timings, customers will have the opportunity to take advantage of DROPPED&LOCKED 1 and 2 price reductions for the next two weeks. This is an added bonus.
