SUPERMARKET giant Coles will celebrate its 80th year in business in Tasmania next week.

The first Coles store opened in Tasmania on July 1, 1933, on the corner of Brisbane and Charles St in Launceston.

The state's links to the supermarket giant, however, go back even further.

The North-West town of Wilmot is often seen as the birthplace of the Coles empire, with G.J. Coles' father George operating a family business there between 1910 and 1921.

Coles now has 16 stores across the state and employs 1640 people in customer service, store management, logistics and at the company's head office.

Anniversary celebrations are planned statewide on Monday.

There will be a cake cutting at each Tasmanian store and customers will have the chance to win one of 110 $80 gift cards.

Bonus Flybuy points and discount vouchers will also be up for grabs.

Coles Tasmania general manager Mark O'Connor said the store had maintained ongoing relationships with key Tasmanian suppliers such as Cripps Bakery and Arvo Park Orchards.

"We're proud to be able to support the Tasmanian community and the state's economy and we are pleased to have around 100 direct suppliers in Tasmania and more than 500 locally produced lines on our shelves," Mr O'Connor said.
