    Update: I just got a refund. They re-weighed them and the two nectarines were just under 300 grams. No hassle, polite service. Only explanation they could offer was that maybe the lady who served me earlier had been leaning on the scales at the time.

    But yeah, I think I'll go the fruit shop next time

    Crisis averted.

    Once (years ago) I did a shop at Coles and something very strange happened with the weights on all my fruit and veg. I only realised when I got home and looked at my docket, but none of the prices matched up with what I actually got. I was grossly overcharged on some items and undercharged on others, so I didn't end up doing anything about it.

    Glad you got it sorted

    Good to hear they were good about it. We had a problem with Coles broccoli once and they were so good about it. I'm a bit of a fan of Coles at the moment.

    GO organic. It's more expensive but at least ur not eating sh!t. It's better to support small growers rather than big corporations who don't care. Just my $0.02

    I usually buy meat from the local butcher and fruit/vegetables from the local green grocer, both of which are really good about returns/refunds. It may cost more but the quality is so much better. I find the fruit/vege lasts much longer when bought from the green grocer than from the supermarket. It is an extra hassle though, having to go to a few different places.

    Actually a few weeks ago when I was not feeling great I ordered everything online from Woolworths and had it delivered. When I unpacked it I noticed the tomatoes were all squashed. I phoned them to let them know and they issued me with a refund, no questions asked. I was amazed that I didn't even have to prove it by sending a photo or physically taking them back to a store.

    Yeah, nah. Not always that straightforward.

    Plus, totally off topic.

    Plus plus, organic is usually grown in sh1t

    I paid $10 for green grapes the other day. They were imported but they are ds favourite so I didn't mind. We tried to eat organic a few years back but it was too expensive, that checkout segment made me feel better!!!

    The problem is that it's more expensive! For a large family it can make a big difference to the groceries bill that not everyone can afford. As a pp said, it's not always that straightforward.

    Good on Coles for giving the OP a refund. I've never had problems getting refunds for groceries from the supermarkets.
