The supermarket price war has never been hotter than at Christmas time, and the big winners are shoppers wanting to snap up a bargain.
“We’ve got half price specials across the store. We’ve dropped the price of ham, puddings, pork, pies, christmas essentials like batteries and dish washing liquid. All the Christmas essentials,” says Coles spokesperson Martine Alpine.
Woolworths has matched Coles on many big selling items including fresh tiger prawns selling for $27/kilo. Mangoes are on offer for $2 each while pork leg roasts and single smoked ham are selling for $7 a kilo at both supermarkets.
