I don't think it will workout here for them because Kiwi's shoppers are so terrible at budgeting and maths - we just don't seem to be interested in buying in bulk. Kiwi's will buy 2 for $5 because the headline price is cheaper than 6 for $10. It goes hand in hand with the country's poor financial literacy.
It's one of the differences i noticed between the supermarkets here and the USA - there everything is available in bulk because the price per unit is cheaper.
Agreed. We suck at grocery shopping because we don't know what we feel like for dinner. About the only things we regularly buy are the standards milk, butter, etc.
Also, I can not be bothered going and buying 10kg of cereal and having to then pour that in to another container, and then put 100 toilet rolls in the garage and blah blah blah. My parents used to shop like that, we lived out on a farm so every two weeks was the "big shop". Took FOREVER to do the shopping, then it was our (the kids) job to put everything away which took just as long.
Nope. Far easier to just rip past the supermarket and grab what I want at the time.
