    Default Where do you shop??

    I've just been told it was strange that ExDP an I used to drive further to shop at Woolworths even though Coles was closer. It was mainly because I like Woolworths better. Anyone else have a preference or is it just whatever is closer? Or maybe IGA or Foodworks ect? Where do you shop.

    I prefer woolworths too but I think Coles is cheaper. Woolworths is closer to my house now too so that helps make up my mind. I buy lots of gluten free products and woolworths is much better for that sort of thing.

    Both are in the same centre here. I tend to favour woolies as i like the meat better and they have a wider range if the health foods i buy - but I've just discovered Coles has amazing market specials on Sat morning do I often visit both.

    We drive further to go to Coles. Our local Woolworths is rubbish. Food is often off and prices are noticeably more expensive then other Woolworths around.

    So we go to Coles. Staff are great. Products are great and better parking etc.

    I prefer Woolworths; I find it really difficult to find things at Coles and I almost always leave with things left on my list because they don't stock them.

    We have Coles and Woolies at our local Westfield. I've recently switched to Coles from Woolies. They have more variety in their bakery and meat sections for us and reasonably priced too!

    I use to drive further to Coles even though there was a Woolies just down the road.
    I've always found coles cheaper, better range of products and wider aisles.
    These days i'm fairly lazy and just go to the Woolies at the end of the street. It's small, overpriced and crowded so i don't know why. Although the local coles is pretty useless as well so would probably have to drive several suburbs over to get to a decent supermarket anyway.

    I shop in all different places. Woolies, coles, aldi, fruit shop and goldern circle factory outlet. Each shop has its own good specials. Woolies is my main store bc i work there and get staff discount and i like the everyday reward specials too.
