So do people have a preferred supermarket? I am curious, so make a comment. Mostly I think it is what is closest to you.
In Balaclava I much preferred Coles to Safeway as it was so much bigger and carried many more lines. Now, our local shops are Prahran, and both are comparable in size and next to each other. I favour Coles though and once a bloke learns where stuff is in a supermarket, he won't wanna change. But I still use Safeway at times, especially for marked down meat.
I really dislike the close by South Melbourne Coles. It is old and cramped and there is always someone in my way. But it is easy to cycle to. They are building a new one though in the near future.
We often shop at Safeway in QV in the city. I really like it and there are lots of cute overseas students to perve on. Coles in Melbourne Central is horrible and I will not go back there. Claustrophobic place it is. I can't even remember the experience. I have blocked it in my head.
I much prefer the old and tired Safeway in Ackland Street to the bright newish Coles.
Maybe I have bit of a preference towards Coles, but it depends more on the physical store itself I think and how convenient it is to me at the time. I will guess that is how it works for most people. But if you only use one and would never use the other, I would be interested to know (fly buy loyalty excluded).
I have not actually been into an Aldi, but I don't think I would like it.
