I can still remember the days when the supermarket checkout was a great place to get fresh produce, fresh meats, eggs and vegetables, but the shelves have become a little less welcoming over the past couple of years.
I have never been a big fan of the supermarket, so I was disappointed to find that I couldn’t find a whole lot of food there, including some staples like bread, pasta, rice and meatballs, even though I had bought a bag of these at the last minute before buying a bag.
But that didn’t stop me from getting some great bargains on the deli counter, and even more interesting was that I got some great deals on bread, eggs, potatoes, salad, biscuits, crackers and other essentials from the grocery.
What to look out for when buying groceries in Melbourne:What to avoid buying at the supermarket in Melbourne’s CBD (January 2018)Read moreThe supermarket is a small, family run business, but it’s not the only one that can be a source of frustration for some Melbourneians.
It’s hard to find a good quality food at the smaller supermarkets in the CBD, and I’ve seen some supermarket staff and customers get angry when I ask them to tell me what they’re buying.
When I was there, they would simply tell me that they were sorry but couldn’t tell me anything more.
While I didn’t get the same reaction from the staff, I was also disappointed that they weren’t able to offer me a good selection of groceries, which would have been great.
This has been a challenge for me to find good deals, but I can definitely say that I am looking forward to shopping in the next few weeks, and this is the perfect opportunity to do so.
