Coles Online: Now delivering to canberra

By Peter Holland 3 October 2008 28

It has been a dream of mine to have an actual large competitor for Woolies homeshop in canberra, partly to create a bit of competition, but mostly to make woolies lift their game re quality of service.

Last night I received an email from Coles, letting me know that they are delivering to Kambah.

Awesome. Now we can choose who we want to buy from, and can get it home delivered. (3 kids and a pram isn’t a very good option whilst shopping)

They haven’t published the list of areas, but here is the link to check your postcode.

I was dragged around the shops with my siblings by my parents when I was a sprog, I was learning how to shop and pick out fruit and veg without realising it, not to mention I had to learn patience and develop agility enough to avoid collisions with other shoppers and trolleys.

So Woolies Qbn = Woolies Dickson? Or has Dickson gotten better since I last ventured to that mad house?

And re the Coles prices everything I buy is indeed way over the top compared to the store prices. Have not compared them to Woolies Homeshop though but from memory when I used them last (ages ago now) they were also dearer then the shop price. But back then it was worth it to not drag the tiny children around.

Aha, my first attempt was flourescence, but I knew that was half-baked at best.

JB and others have tried to explain the method in the madness of shopping at Aldi to me, but I have to say that I’m a bear of very little brain, and on the few occasions (count them on one hand) that I’ve ventured into an Aldi store (three x ACT and one x NSW), on each occasion I’ve walked out empty-handed, having done a lap or three and muttering, ‘Who the, what the, how the — it’s all too hard!’

Which worries me little as I’m planning on changing many current practices and one of them is to leave behind the temples of neon and flurescence (sp?) — “Clean up on aisle four and price-check on a packet of 24 thumb-tax on check-out #23” — and go the true village/market shopping — er, as soon as I’m in the same city for more than 48 hours at a time.

We were set to give the Coles online deal a go. But then we started looking at the prices. Most things we’d normally buy are around 10% more expensive through the online service. So while the delivery charge seems good, the overall package is far from it.

Order cancelled.

I have just put my grocery order in. Lets see how it goes. Its free delivery until Oct 18 according to the website.

we are going to investigate the Gunghalin Aldi, Loq. as the magent mart out there gets visited sometimes. The german beer deal is attractive as we have someone allergic to everything.

That Woolies at Qbn is awful, they have the most shocking lines all the time, even in the grog shop. The Coles has improved a lot so it’s easy to shop there instead. Mother Natures in Qbn is excellent too, you can get most of your stuff there and then Coles for whatever they didn’t have.
