Food prices in New Zealand come as a shock to anyone coming from overseas. What gets me is that I can buy New Zealand Apples, Kiwis, Avocados for less in Germany than I have to pay here.
When the lockdown started the supermarkets here stopped their specials so as "not to encourage more panic buying". I'm pretty sure most people had the same thought: "Yeah, pull the other one …".
But given the difficult situation that most people find themselves in - why can't supermarkets simply reduce the price on essential items? Why not reduce the price on bread, milk, fruit, veges by 20%?
Maybe then I would have more respect for those running the NZ supermarket cartel claiming that they care …
Just curious, has anyone been to the shipping malls since level 2? If yes, did you purchase anything?
