If you don’t have a Costco mega-store near you, Coles is providing the next best thing. The supermarket has announced that it will be selling super-sized versions of some of its popular products to rival bulk-buying Costco.
From today (Wednesday), you can now find BIG versions of a variety of products, including pasta, bread crumbs, cous-cous and cereals.
Coles has said that this move could save consumers up to 60 per cent on the bulk purchase of some products.
Stock Up On Staples
A Current Affair spoke to Coles senior communications manager Martine Alpins, who said: ‘Over winter our customers love to stock up on staples,’
‘Things that you don’t want to have to keep buying at the supermarket.
‘You can buy once and have it there ready to go for your family.’
Big Bulk Savings
Panko bread crumbs, will be available in 1kg bags, priced at only $5. The regular 200gram bag currently costs $2.70.
Barilla pasta is now available in a 5kg bag for $14. The pasta usually retails for $1.95 for 500g.
You can buy San Remo Cous Cous in a 2kg pack for $6. The smaller 500g package goes for $2.80 (a 40% saving).
As reported in news.com.au, Coles CEO Greg Davis warned stocks may vary from store to store and to shop early to avoid disappointment.
“We know our customers look for value when stocking up on pantry staples and offering some of our popular products in bulk is one way we are helping our customers save time and manage the family budget,” Mr. Davis said.
