A memo to staff revealed the amazing news Coles Little Shop fans have been desperate to hear.
“We have some BIG news, team! Little Shop is back for Christmas!” the memo begins.
“From Friday 7 December, for every $30 spent at Coles supermarkets and Coles Online, customers can collect a FREE mini collectable — with a total of 5 minis to collect.
“Little Shop Christmas Edition will delight customers this festive season!”
Earlier this year, Coles delighted shoppers with their Little Shop promotion, where fans could collect 30 mini shopping items. Toy versions of popular grocery staples included Weet Bix, Vegemite and Nutella.
Shoppers were given one free toy with every $30 spent in-store, and before long, it became a nation-wide trend which helped Coles profits soar.
It was so popular Facebook groups dedicated to swapping the collectables and swap days were held in some Coles stores, as shoppers became desperate to collect all 30 of the minis.
Some rare minis even swapped hands for around $200.
