I just want to see a combined Woolworths, Big W, Dan Murphys and pub :lol:

Coles group could probably do bigger combination though
Coles, Kmart/Target, First Choice Liquor/Liquorland, Bunnings, Charlies Diner
They kind of tried that concept 30 odd years ago with "SuperK" Port Adelaide. It was Kmart and Coles combined in one huge store, with groceries, clothing, household, garden section, a diner/café...not sure about the liquor though. It lasted maybe 2 years in that format, until it was divided up and just became a regular Kmart one side and Coles the other side.

Imagine this scenario:
You order online, someone packages your order ready for collection, you fill up your car's fuel tank, you pay for your fuel or it could be paid before you fill up , you then collect your groceries from the register. Its easy, efficient and fast for the customer especially in the time poor ages.

We have moved on from having an expert fill our fuel tank and wash the windscreen for us to doing that ourselves, while paying someone to pick our groceries and pack them.

Coles wanted to have another go at this in the mid-late 2000's too when they wiped Bi-Lo and wanted to merge Coles and K-Mart into Walmart-style hypermarkets but then abandoned the idea halfway through the Bi-Lo purge.

To be honest, I'm surprised the hypermarket concept hasn't taken off in Australia.

In case you haven't heard, Kaufland will be opening in the next few years!
