      Supermarket monopoly

      Would'nt it be nice if there were a few more big players here in the Supermarket field,offering competition and in effect helping us all when buying everyday foodstuffs and the like?

      wont happen because coles and woolies open new stores wherever it looks like someone else is going to take the spot. we used to have a cheapo supermarket chain here called Franklins (no frills) lasted about 5 years I think.

      I do miss internet grocery shopping as it made life a lot easier as a working Mum. Now I have to waste a precious morning off hauling a trolley around the supermarket when I could be catching up on other things. I used to like knowing exactly how much was in my shopping basket so I could stick to my budget. Now I have to guess and don't know the bottom line figure until I get to the till. I hope I don't sound too spoilt but once you've used something that works for you and your family you do miss the convenience.

      Ah yes, I used to have a choice of 4 good supermarkets within 15 mins of me in the UK ........... and certainly missed that to start with.
      Foodland at Pasadena is quite good and they run the www.bananablue.com.au delivery site ...........
      If you can stand the city the Central Market is fabulous but I can quite understand that it isn't convenient if you don't work close to it.
      Another good option is Willunga Market - every Saturday morning. The Farmers' Market in the Showgrounds is expensive in comparison to Willunga.

      Yes I agree its a great shame. Perhaps one day it might happen here. Aldi are in Sydney so given time ( a long time at that) it might happen in Adelaide.

      i mean leave or those guys back in the UK, as Australia does not need them in my opinion.
      we have a a good selection of supermarkets here, who all have different prices on different stuff, you need to shop around for your shopping here and not do it all in one place. ( old style shopping )

      and that would mean getting the odd suprise from my mum back in the yUK not worth the wait, i go without JAFFA CAKES but if my mum wants to send em then let her ;)
      There are things i miss from the yUK but thats family and friends, as for shops and foodstuffs nah, i go along with the Aus way of life and enjoy it over here.;)
