Fed up parents and grandparents claim their kids are losing out to money hungry shoppers who are cashing in on the popular Coles Little Shop campaign once again.
Only a mere four days since the campaign launched on Friday 7th December, Coles supermarkets have already sold out of the cases.
One grandmother recently posted in a Facebook group where shoppers swap and sell collectables: “You should be ashamed of yourselves. All I wanted was one folder for my granddaughter… what in the hell is going on?”.
“Now I see selfish money-hungry people selling them for $40. Wise up you stupid people.”
Another mother said she went to three different supermarkets on the morning of the launch and still couldn’t pick up a case.
“I’m over it,” she wrote in Coles Little Shop Facebook group.
“Wrecking kids fun. Go get real jobs people, I bet you sell baby formula too.”
A Coles spokesperson told Yahoo News that they had limited case sales to three per customer, as many of their shoppers are families with several children.
Much like the first release, those cases are now selling on eBay for upwards of $40, leaving those who went home empty handed outraged over the “pathetic” distribution measures put in place by the supermarket.
