Woolies. There's one walking distance and there's an independent baker in the same shops. I go there for top-ups of basics or jut to grab one of two things when I walk up there.
There's another one a few mins drive, it's quite new so has the new layout and fittings (more efficient, energy saving refrigeration etc) and its always pretty quiet - i can stroll around as I please without any annoying crowds or long checkout queues! They have a great range and the fruit & veg is always fresh.
There are 2 really big Coles not far from here, but they are both packed due to their location, parking is a b*tch, and they always seem messy to me. I can never find anything and I hate battling crowds at the grocery store, especially with a toddler in tow.

the great thing about IGA is that they will order in certain products if you want them - mine gets my Italian tomatoes, Persian feta and five am yogurt in for me , the owners are always either working or around and know most of the regulars by name , so much more personal than the other 2
in my suburb I also have my butcher, organic shop, fruit market and deli that I have been going to for gosh nearly 15 years! I get my dog food from a pet warehouse, seafood from either the fish markets or I do have a good seafood shop a few suburbs away and bread from bakers delight, they all know me, DH and DS all by name and I love supporting local businesses

Coles- I think it's cheaper than Woolies.
There's only one good Woolies around here (it's really really good actually) but the parking is horrendous, and I really detest busy carparks. Whereas there's 2 good Coles', plus one cr@ppy one but it's location is handy. So it's just easier to go to a Coles.
Also I worked at Coles for years so had a discount card until they took it off me last year.

Neither. I shop at aldi and then go to whichever major chain has what I need on sale.

Coles because woolies seems so crampt! And im just used to coles so I know where everything is. But im thinking of trying a shop at woolies to see what the difference is

I shop at both regularly.
I like the really big Coles supermarkets, small ones don't cut it for me.
I like Wollies because I find that I know what's in each aisle better. Coles I often have to back track as I miss stuff on my list.

I used to shop at woolies as it seemed like a nicer experience - cleaner, brighter, more modern but thanks to flybuys discounts I started going to coles and I've found it much cheaper. Also more gluten free products which are cheaper too. I try not to buy fruit and veg at either, rather go to the market or a fruit and veg shop but for general groceries coles is good.

I shop at Woolies, the nearest Coles is 15 minutes away and only small.
Overall I find Woolies better quality. If we are on holiday and have access to both, I still choose Woolies.

I switched to Coles due to fly buys and also that the petrol station on the highway i drive down is a Coles one.
I find that I still tend to duck into wollies for a couple of things, coffee pods and lactose free milk usually if it's not on special at Coles.
