Penrith is the top selling Coles store in New South Wales for both hams and Christmas crackers this festive season.

And Coles has revealed its Penrith and Cambridge Gardens stores are also in the top 10 for wrapping paper sales.

The Penrith store is also selling plenty of pavlovas and prawns, also sitting in the top 10.

Coles Chief Executive of Commercial and Express Greg Davis said after a challenging few months for many Australians, celebrating together over a delicious feast is the joy we have all been waiting for this Christmas.

“While we may be divided in our food preferences depending on where we live, the one thing we’re all united over is our desire to be together this Christmas, with our recent survey showing that 60 per cent of Aussies want to be together, and food is at the centre of the celebration,” he said.

“At Coles, we know the importance food has in bringing us all together to create an extraordinary experience. So this Christmas we’ve made the planning and preparation easy with over 150 new and improved products for a complete Christmas feast, from heat-and-eat entrées, locally sourced centrepieces like our gold award-winning Crackling Smoked Ham on a rib rack, and ready-to-eat desserts such as our giant chocolate trifles and mousse logs that serve up to 12 people.

“We’re also focused on making this the most sustainable Christmas ever with our first-ever range of 100% recyclable, plastic-free Christmas crackers and greeting cards, and durable, wooden hanging decorations.

“More than half of our customers have told us that Christmas ham is their favourite Christmas product from Coles. We’re incredibly proud of our must-have 100% Aussie and sow stall free half-leg hams, which have been winning awards for years including recently at the Perth, Tasmania and Sydney Royal shows.”
