    Woolworths - 3 mins drive
    IGA - 3 mins drive
    Coles - 20 mins drive

    I prefer Coles, I've generally found it cheaper and I prefer their fruit and veg. I did do my shop at Woolies last week though and was pleasantly surprised with the total. That probably won't change me though as a new Coles is been built here.

    Woolworths because its 1 minute away. I prefer Coles though and go there occasionally. It's about 10 minutes away. Depends how much time I have

    I do diff things at diff places.

    ALdi - snack foods for school, different specials as advertised, fruit and vege on the week I go, some meat if it looks ok (i usually only go once every 3 weeks).

    COles - for my staples. Much prefer them over Safeway and weekly.

    Safeway - for allergy stuff as needed...maybe once a month or so.

    I don't shop at my local Coles. I'll drive to a further Coles or even Woolies.
    I prefer Woolworths for fresh produce. Most people in my area are the same. Our local Coles is really bad.
    We have a spud shed close by that I'd like to use but the fruit and veg is really, really bad and goes off the next day.

    I shop at my local Coles- its a short walk away. I generally only buy things on special and I like some of the Coles brand items. But, as mentioned by PP, sometimes they have a problem with supply, especially when items are on super special. Down, down, prices are down! But the shelves are empty!!

    I drive past 2 woolworths, a bilo and 2 coles to get to the woolworths I shop at. The quality of produce is much better, hence driving further.

    I have coles, woolworths & iga all close to my house so I normally look at the catalogues and if any of the stores have things on special that I need I will grab from them but do the bulk of my shopping at coles
