Woolies price drop

Woolworths’ Director of Buying, Paul Harker, said the supermarket’s price drop was about helping Aussies find value during what will be a very different festive season.

“It’s been a challenging year and customers will be looking for ways to save more during what’s typically an expensive season. We’re committed to providing customers with great value, so we’re dropping the prices on more than 140 products across our supermarkets and online,” he said. 

“The price drops cover a range of pantry and Christmas favourites, entertaining essentials and cookware, making Christmas at home more affordable. Many customers also plan their Christmas shop months in advance and gradually stock their pantry to avoid last minute expenses. These dropped prices will help them save on their shopping right through until Christmas Eve.”
