West Island Supermarket

The Cooperative operates a supermarket on West Island, which has a comprehensive range of products for residents and to supply visiting ships.

Due to the remote location of the Cocos Keeling Islands, the supermarket maintains large storage facilities which includes walk-in freezers, walk-in chillers, cool rooms and hot rooms. In addition, it has a number of refrigerated shipping containers which may be used for frozen chilled products if required.

Modern material handling equipment such as forklifts and pallet trollies are used in the logistical operations of the supermarket. The Cooperative has an extensive range of suppliers and a network of services for air and sea freight. In mid 2016, the supermarket will be moving to a fully computerised Point of Sale and Inventory Management System.

The supermarket is able to store, palletise and transport supplies for visiting ships and represents a number of mainland organisations in the provision of such services.

Home Island Hardware Store

The Cooperative operates the hardware store on Home Island, supplying a range of hardware products to businesses and residents, domestic gas, as well as operating the fuel farm which supplies petrol and diesel to residents and businesses.
