No supermarket duopoly in Wellington

  • February 24th, 2014

We've got the incomparable Moore Wilsons here, so the Foodstuffs/Progressives duopoly is constantly challenged on quality and local suppliers have an alternative outlet.
There is little sign though that Moore Wilson sets out to compete on price however. So we have a residual personal interest in how the Commerce Commission investigation pans out.
All power to Shane Jones, using Parliamentary privilege for a purpose intended, though the absence of debate with him suggests feeble briefing in response from Countdown.

Here in Whangarei we have the growers market, a real produce market supplying local produce to families. For many families we are an essential part of their economy. I am a stallholder there all year round. It’s not my business to get into price wars with anybody, but my produce sells at the same price all year round, cheap in winter, a not so in summer. I still sell as much as I can grow.
