    Default Coles or Woolies?

    I'm curious - what's your preference out of the two "major" chains? & why? - is one cheaper? Does one have a better range of products? Better fresh produce/butcher/bakery? Etc....

    I've always shopped at Woolies, but my local Woolies has gone down hill something chronic & I'm contemplating switching to Coles to see what it's like

    I shop at both. I do most at Woolies as I find they have a bigger range and then I go into Coles for specials and the few items they stock that Woolies don't.

    I usually end up shopping at Woolies because it is literally across the road.

    I go to Woolworths because it has a much bigger range. Also the Coles where I live is tiny.

    This is the same for me, plus I find the produce and meat heaps better at woolworths.

    Coles. Wider aisles, wider spacing on shelves, seem to have more products I buy.
    They treat their staff better than woolies. Slighty higher rate of pay and a guaranteed minimum 6 hours a week for casual employees. Coles are more stringent when it comes to rotation of stock as well.

    I still shop at both though.

    I shop at Coles because for us It's a lot more cheaper than Woolies. That being said I do find that Woolies meat is a lot better.

    I mainly shop at Coles.
    Woollies always seems more expensive, the two near me are tiny and mainly have the Woolies brand products which I don't always want. The deli always seems dark and dingy.

    We have 2 Coles and 4 Woolies near us. I dislike the set up at 2 Woolies and shop at the other 2 (I also work at 1 so get staff discount). Dh likes to shop at Coles.
