    Both. Mainly Woolies as they have a greater range and more specials. Coles for specials and fruit and veg (when I can't get to a local green grocer) as the stores in my area are given better quality stock.

    Neither - but maybe a few times a year if I'm desperate and need something while I'm out I'd go Coles over Woolies as they are slightly more ethical than Woolies in the shop ethical guide !

    I shop at Woolies. The one near us is new and is well laid out and not at all cramped. I find they always have plenty of stock of their specials and their fruit and veg and meat is good quality. I bought chicken breast a while back, kept it in the fridge and 2 days later went to use it and it was off. Woolies refunded and replaced it.

    I shop at woolies. Everyone thinks I'm weird but the main reason is I find woolworths is a lot more welcoming and happy. I think it's the colour scheme. Haha.

    Also find they have a better range, fresher produce and bakery items and the stores are much better layed out.

    I have actually started online shopping. They pack it all up for me and I drive through parcel pick up and collect it. It's awesome. I don't think I will shop any other way again.

    I don't know where our local Woolies is so for us, it's IGA vs Coles. I shopped at IGA until just before Christmas then I switched because Coles was air conditioned and IGA wasn't. Pregnancy + shopping + heat = one sour camper.

    I've stayed there now because the isles are wide, they stock quadruple the amount of products, the counter staff are friendly, the store is clean and the fruit smells and tastes amazing!
    I find the pricing similar too.

    I went to Woolies yesterday for the first time in years to do some shopping for mum and three bags cost me $90. All products I would usually buy but everything was at $1-$2 more (with the exception of the cheese that was on sale).

    we shop at Woolies. Simply because the closest shops have a woolies and their online shopping is free for orders over $300

    I used to shop at Woolies but now the Coles close to me has had a major overhaul and they have everything. The Woolies deli food tastes old and there is no bakery. Coles have it all.

    Woollies was much better where we used to live, but Coles is better here- so we've switched.
