Discover how to get a free roast chicken from your local Coles.

While shopping at a supermarket in Adelaide, one woman noticed a sticker below the empty chicken cabinet promising customers a free hot roast chicken if there were none left.

The deal available at that store requires customers to alert staff to the empty cabinet between 11am and close. Once they do so, they will be entitled to a free roast chicken once the shelves have been re-stocked.

The shopper shared a photograph of the deal online and while many shoppers were thrilled, others pointed out that the deal is not available everywhere.

‘Only if the store displays this sticker. If it doesn’t they don’t follow this policy. Not all Coles do it,’ one person commented.

‘My local in Perth didn’t have any the other evening,’ one person said.

‘Our Coles Hot Roast Chicken is one of our most popular items and we want to have them available at the times that our customers want them most,’ a Coles spokesperson told Daily Mail Australia.

‘The offer is only available in select stores and times vary by location.’
