Sometimes on the way to your dream,

you get lost and find a better one.

Tonight's Today Tonight program features an article on filthy supermarkets. Safeway, Woolworths and Coles have all been listed. But not ALL stores obviously. I'm happy to mention here that yesterday I was asked to pass on a compliment to the store manager on how neat and clean "my" Coles is.


  1. I could mention a certain IGA store with a sticky floor that reminds me of dingy nightclubs *shudder*.

  2. Ah I agree with Jayne, some of the IGA stores are awful. Happily Coles near me seems pretty pristine (although God knows what goes on behind the scenes!)

  3. I know from running a food store myself, that the Health Regulations are just never adhered to by anybody -

    "person handling food for public consumption must have their hair completely covered at all times"

    Very recently I got food poisoning from foolishly buying a sausage-in-bread from a fund-raising stall that was only on the outside of a safeway. ha!

  4. I'm always wary of sausage sizzles, Ann, only buying from them if I can see the sausages are stored in coolers before being cooked. If the snags are on trays out in the open, sometimes even in the sun, I'll pass them by.
