Technical glitch forces mass Coles closures
Coles is apologising after several of its supermarkets were forced to close because of a technical glitch on Sunday.
Customers at stores around Australia were met by a notice on the door about a “minor IT problem” affecting the checkouts.
Stores were affected in Melbourne, Sydney, and on the Gold Coast.
