Woolworths: Competition cuts in – Pt 2

Did you know that more than 10m customers shopped at a Woolworths store last month? They did so because it was convenient and they wanted items they couldn’t get from Aldi. The customer is always right, they say, and in this case plenty of them continue to shop at Australia’s largest supermarket chain.
