Over the next few months, though, there could be some easing of the wallet crunch, with Woolworths announcing a season-long price drop on “over 400 food staples”.
Woolworths claimed the initiative would save customers millions of dollars.
The price drop will be in effect from August 24 to November 29 of this year, covering the entire spring.
Affected products include ground chicken, instant coffee, cheese, bread, butter, vitamins, yogurt and dipping sauces.
“Because of the higher cost of living being felt by every household in Australia, we know customers are looking for better value in their stores,” said Woolworths chief commercial officer Paul Harker.
“This is our biggest seasonal sale to date and it’s just one way to get better value when shopping at Woolworths.
“We will continue to invest and find ways to help millions of our customers and our team save on their weekly purchase.”
Woolworths Daily Rewards also offers five times the usual points on all transactions over $50, but that promotion ends tomorrow.
