Until now, Coles has had the upper hand in supermarkets in Chatswood with stores at the Chase and at Westfields.
For years, Woolworths have been trying to find a suitable site for a store. They have bought land (the old Holden Service Centre) in East Chatswood. However, that site is not zoned for a supermarket.
Typically, a large supermarket requires around 10,000 sm. Unfortunately, the Supermarket store to open at the Chatswood Interchange is a mere 2,000sm.
Some competition is better than nothing.
