Yes a full page advert in the DailyTelegraph both Sunday And Monday, providing a coupon which the slick woolies marketeers would give you ten dollars off the price of any fresh leg of lamb from their butchery departments in the Sydney regions.
For those people with oodles of loose change with little shopping acumen, you will be confused and remark so what, however those with fewer shekels for food with which to fill the tummies of their hungry tribe will question this and bring the slide rules and abacus into play.
Note the average price for a leg of lamb family size meaning enough for six grown ups with some left over for supper also the dog and the cat, would last week cost $24-00 for a smaller leg at $ 12-00 per Kilo. These smaller legs have had slices removed from the thick end which the butcher flogs at $16 -00 a kilo.
On arrival at the Woolworth's store, I noticed that of the dozen or so Legs of Lamb on display, were not that of lower income size and they were not moving. The reason being the price per kilo had been jacked up by $2-00 per kilo for starters and there were none under the 3,5 kilo weight . the prices varied between $46-00 to $50-00 plus. So even with the ten dollars off coupon most families would balk at the offer, but in reality if you had a family of twelve or were running an orphanage you would have saved four bucks on one costing $50 bucks.
However Woolies boosted their patronage so I was told; but not on my account. Woolworth's purchase a large percentage of their home brand veggies overseas IE Frozen mixed veggies from China of all shitty places. and for those with common sense and an eye for value and real freshness, you will find that the fresh veggie shops flogging wholesome produce equal to or better than the so called Woolworth's the fresh food people, are charging 25% less.
But there will always be the 'Pay Day' loonies With the 'Give the cat another canary syndrome' shopping at Woolies and feeding their children on bread and dripping later in the week.
I have the Daily Telegraph delivered daily to my door.
Back soon Vest.
Tues Jan 24. Woolworth's are at it again.
Yesterday the general price for quality rump steak was $9-00 per kilo (see IGA advert issued Monday)
Today Woolworth's have this amazing offer.
Rump Steak minimum buy 2 Kilos. $15-00 off market value beef rump steak at Woolworth's.
Present this coupon to receive $15-00 off when you purchase a pack of Australian beef market value rump steak( minimum 2 kilo pack in a single purchase until wed Jan 25.
I am thinking that based on the I G A price of $9-00 a kilo the customer would be paying $1-50 a kilo or $3-00 for the Min Buy of 2 kilo's. However I'll hazard a guess that the asking price before their discount will be at least $16-50 per kilo. No info on this yet. having phoned 02-88850000 the head office opening at 0800.
0857: I have discovered the retail price for a 2 kilos pack of rump steak is $18-93per kilo, Wow.
So if we take off the $15-00 discount from a min buy of $37-86, you will get the message that you are paying $11-43 a kilo, $2-43 a kilo more than the norm at $9-00 at IGA and other stores.
Just another rip off by the fresh food people, Meaning if its too good to be true it probably isn't.
Previously an ave daily of 16 this month.
