Aldi is better in all regards. God bless free trade. All protectionists should go and die.
Is that some kind of Walmart style of store they have where you come from?
Back in Ireland we had Lidl and other weird stores
No, it's a Kraut supermarket chain or some shit. The point is that Coles and Woolworths dominate the retail market here in Australia. Aldi provides better quality goods for less money. I've had it up to here paying for shit products that cost me 50% to 90% more than I'd find in Aldi.
Tonight, my toleration limit was reached. I hope all the "BUY AUSTRALIAN" idiots go fuck themselves. Australian products are shit and cost more. HOW THE FUCK DO THEY COST MORE? Aldi has to import most of their shit from Germany.
We actually have an Aldi in my town of 24,000 people.
No one really gives a fuck about it because those petty rat bastards don't accept credit (known) or checks (reputedly).
What do you mean credit? You mean like a tab or do you mean a credit card?
But yeah, only retarded stores accept cheques.
aldi and lidl is for poor people( i shop at both)
That's what I thought until I found out that almost every single product from Coles and Woolworths is inferior to Aldi's alternative.
You never could buy food at woolies when it was in Scotland, just sweets and crisps. We also had BIG W which i worked at which was just another name for woolies. that is also gone now, think we have woolthorths online, but no one really uses it anymore
Most American Supermarkets accept checks. But yeah, I imagine Australia is a retail hellhole.
Granted, check writing is pretty archaic these days, it comes in handy for committing fraud.
It's a supermarket chain. WTF are you going to buy if not food?
That's what happens when you centralise power, economic or otherwise.
The family who owns Aldi is like number 19 of the world billionaires list according to Forbes.
You Aussies at least down there have grocery delivery for the common folk. In America only the rich right now have complete and regular access to grocer delivery on sites like Peapod.com
I browsed the online Coles grocery store and did find the higher prices as compared to here in the American South.
The average cost of a dozen eggs at Coles is like $3. Here it's 99 cents. Americans would picket in the streets if egg prices shot up too high. The organic eggs were $7-$8. Especially if the McDonald's McBiscuit with eggs goes up $2-$3.
You guys seem to like bran flakes for cereal much more than us. Up here bran is just for old people and those with unstable colons. Except Raisin Bran. But Americans only eat it because each flake is so sugarcoated that if you look at it under bright light it literally glows.
One liter of Sara Lee's ice cream at Coles is $10. The cheapest ice cream was the generic brand and one Aussie told me it really sucks. But I would love to try the Cadbury ice cream series, esp. the Honeycombe and Chocolate, along with Cadbury ice cream treats.
In your crackers, which you prefer to call biscuits (cookies too), I was told of one flavor by Arnott's called Chicken Crimpy. Another American friend remarked of such wit said that sounds like the Aussie way of saying a chicken is having a seizure.
Then in the nutritional bars section I saw a big brand named Aussie Bodies, and it gave me the impression that, along with the stereotype of Aussie being outdoorsy, they were supremely healthy, only to be shattered when I was told Australia has a high obesity rate too. Then this label seems wild inappropiate.
I saw the ad for a "Brekkie Burger". Not many Americans would eat that for breakfast.
Tell me The Member Formerly Known As Baya, how is the Australian white supremisist movement fairing down under?
Do you think they'll let me join?
The Member Formerly Known As Baya if you hate Australian made owned and grown, then you suck!
the problem i have with Woolies and Coles is that they are NOT Australian owned stores, Dick Smith is a big supporter of Australian Brands! that's why he sells Australian brands to oversea's bidders i guess....
Our economy is absolute shit because we have governments that sell assets to foreign interests, QANTAS i hear used to be AUSTRALIAN OWNED apparently it was government owned to some degree to, then they sold it and some irish fuckwit is driving it into the ground so he can outsource to Taiwan,
Australia sucks ass because our government likes taxing businesses, and businesses like to fire Aussies and hire chinese people who live for 1 dollar a day, and moved here because they get 2 dollars a day, so that way the savings from the wage cuts goes into their pocket,
taxes on "Big Business" just acts as a perfect excuse for them now.
If things keep going the way they are, Aussies are all going to be dole bludgers living off the money that was taken from the wages of indians and chinese who work for nothing then the money gets taxed from the employers then goes through the bowels of the government body before being shat into centerlink pension checks.
I don't like that future, and the thing that bothers me the most is the next generation of Australians are all about sitting on their fat cottage cheese pimply white ass playing videogames all day long, and a society that runs off foreign near slave labour and business tax paying for dole checks which are enough for somebody who just wants to sit on their ass all day playing videogames actually APPEALS TO THEM.
Not food store here, household goods like duvets, clocks, toasters, and kids clothes. you had the pic'n'mix sweets- thats what woolworths was famous for in theuk- that and going kaput
woolworth still exists? i havent seen one of those since i was ten.
Isn't Woolworths British?
yeah but we didnt want it no more so as usual we sent it to OZ
Everything is cheap in the American South. Go to a real place like California or New York and you will have to pay the higher prices for living in the better place.
calling crackers biscuits is racist.
being a faggot is sexist
talking like a nigger is CHBist
The thing I find really disturbing about Pink Slime is that apparently a large section of society was eating it with no knowledge of what they were eating.
Fuck early Amerindians, the Beef Board uses every part of their kill.
Are Niggers Tim Tams?
i don't think its possible to compare niggers to anything else....but niggers
Are you agreeing with me or not? I can't tell.
Holy shit, we have a white supremacist movement? I couldn't tell from all the Blacks and Asians.
I'm not surprised employers prefer Chinese since the Chinese are better workers. From what I've seen, at least. Anyway, Australia's economy's going to hell because most of it is dominated by a handful of companies.
I knew there were a lot of ching chongs in Australia, but not blacks.
Are you talking about African OOGA BOOGA blacks, or inferior "Abbo" blacks
And of course theres a white supremesist movement in Australia..
as you said "all the Blacks and Asians"
