Did you know that smart Wavell Heights shoppers find the best deals at the “secret” section of Woolworths? Shave dollars off your purchases and find the bargains at the grocery chain’s reduced aisle.
According to the Facebook group Budgeting, Food, Savings Ideas, Stockpiling, Life Help Australia, the reduced section is usually found at the end of the last aisle and it’s where shoppers may find slightly damaged goods or products at the end of their expiration date.
A mom brought up the secret section in the group by posting photos of her haul, which included an organic body wash ($2.80), Bega smooth peanut butter ($1.89), mini Kit Kats (35 cents each) and War Heads (80 cents).
The Woolies shopper said that she’s noticed the secret section in the “past few months” but she wasn’t sure if it’s followed at all stores. Other Woolies regulars also shared that they’ve been shopping at the bargain section for some time.
A spokesperson from Woolworths confirmed that they do have a marked down section to lessen product wastes. However, the items will vary “from day to day, and store to store, based on stock levels and demand.” The location of the reduced items’ section is also different from store to store.
Another smart shopper also shared that it pays to visit the stores at specific times of the day when there are Quick Sale items. These carry a four-digit code on the top corner of the price tag to indicate the time the item is cleared for marked down.
