    Woolies, Coles doesn't deliver here. That said I stick to bargains and can feed two adults, 2 school age boys (who I swear have worms, never stop eating) a cat and 2 dogs including a great Dane for 300 $ a fortnight

    For the things we buy, coles is usually a little cheaper. Our local woolworths is also quite small and lacks a lot. Fruit,veg etc. we buy elsewhere though whenever we have the time.

    Woolies. When we first moved here that's where we went. We know the store like the back of our hand now, so makes the shop alot quicker. We tried Coles but i guess it was out of our comfort zone by then because it felt like they designed their stores backwards and left half of their products out!
    I had to stop at coles today as i want to test out their newborn Comfy Bots napies, that's all i purchased. At this particulr time (lunch time), they had 2 registers open with about 12 people lining up with full trolleys, no express lane, no DIY registers yet. Someone who looked like management in the front booth area walking around aimlessly.....
    I know this was just one particular store, but seriously? it was a joke. c'mon coles.
    I do like the coles stores who have the whole fresh produce/deli/cheese sections and their instore bakery is pretty good too. We only have the basics for both supermarkets here.

    Coles has always been cheaper for us, and I used to be a Safeway girl only *chuckle*.
    I'm furious though, after moving to a new area I'm finding that there's a price hike on 'healthy' food options like light cheese, low fat yoghurt, and things like gluten free products. They're often quite a substantial amount more expensive than the non-health range. I think we're getting stiffed because we're in a smaller area and people have less choice so if they want 'healthier' products they'll spend more.

    Makes me mad, because there's a LOT of people with unhealthy weight ranges kicking around here and it's clearly them capitalizing on a lack of healthy nutrition knowledge and the fact that a lot of people don't understand nutrition.

    Coles, they seem to have the things I need at a cheaper price then woolies.

    I used to only shop at woolies but my local one has turned to sh1t.

    Coles, as I find Woolworths doesn't stock all the things I buy.

    I've never noticed much of a price difference between the two in my suburb though.

    I prefer coles. I find them cheaper. I like the fact that they have the same pricing across the whole state whereas woolies varies their prices depending on the social economical status of the area their store is located in.
    I do find woolies more vego friendly though. A lot of there in store made stuff is vego friendly whereas coles seem to add animal fat to everything.

    I prefer Woolies. I have shopped Coles a few times but I find they run out of more things and I dislike some of their homebrand products.

    Woolies annoy me with how often they change their shelf prices, however it feels more comfortable for me
