A truncated message to Woolworths - their feedback form capped my characters!
I have been shopping at the store for years and am concerned about some recent changes. In the last couple of weeks the store seems to be phasing out individual items in the fruit and vegetable section, such as carrots.
There is only a small display of individual carrots in the refrigerated section of fruit ‘n veg, with a 1KG bag being the minimum. At first I thought this was just an anomaly, and surely the carrots would be back soon, however carrots are no longer on the ‘popular items’ list on the self service checkout machines. I find it hard to believe that carrots aren’t popular enough to be listed next to potatoes, and onions.
If I bought a 1KG back of carrots all but two of them go off before I could finish them. I know it sounds funny, but I only buy what I need, and live within my means. I don’t want to waste 1KG of carrots for the sake of 2 individual carrots, that simply is not sustainable.
Today I purchased my meat for the week. I usually get 1KG of beef mince, and 500g of lamb mince. Often the lamb mince runs out, and I get some more beef. However today the smallest amount of beef mince (regular) I could purchase was 1.7+KG. Again, this is more than I need. There was a more expensive option of smaller portions of ‘organic premium beef mince’.
