It was originally a campaign to promote a local supermarket chain that stocked local produce. Coles and Woolies tended to import a large proportion of their produce from outside the state, which was ultimately having a negative effect on smaller local businesses and producers.

In reality not much different from Dick Smith
Does Adelaide still have the thing where most shops can't open on Sundays but Foodland can?

Interesting this morning reading that Woolies have decided to end their 8 year price war with Coles and moving to towards normal pricing of milk.

How would you feel as dairy farmer who sent to the wall over these corporate tactics? They aren’t much different to the banks when it comes to ethics.
The other thing about Adelaidians: they are quite sensitive about their parochialism!

I swear to god in Year 7 Geography they were doing some quiz.. one q was "What is the worlds most liveable city?" And the student put Melbourne.

Then for "What is the worlds least liveable city" she put Adelaide.

I'm not even joking :tearsofjoy::tearsofjoy:

Adelaide is a cool place, I've been there a lot for both business and pleasure, they just have a chip on their shoulder a lot, little brother syndrome, similar to NZ but the Kiwis don't have it quite as bad imo.

At least in Port Moresby and Johannesburg you can own firearms and shoot intruders (well, you know, fire a warning shot into the ceiling afterwards)
