This figure represents a 7.7% increase over last year's result, which was for 52 weeks.
Coles Myer CEO Dennis Eck says both food and liquor continued to increase market share, and general merchandise also performed strongly.
"We are happy with this result - particularly given the GST introduction. Data suggests we have outperformed the market in the categories we are represented".
