After reducing markdowns in the meat department on products to as little as 10% the day before their expiry, Coles have managed to exceed even that miserly markdown.
Today I saw Red Leicester cheese which was labelled “Best Before 05 Jun 19” marked down by an incredibly generous 5%.
I guess they will simply just have to throw it all in the garbage tonight.
Surely worth a nomination for another Spot-A-Shonky?
“Best Before” does not mean “Use By”
Whilst at our local Coles this afternoon, I noticed that they had slashed the price of their fancy lamb roasts from $35/kg to a mere $15/kg.
There were lots of them, presumably from a failed Easter meal idea, so I grabbed two.
If your local Coles has any, they may even be cheaper tomorrow or Friday, which is the Best Before date.
