I found foodland to be more expensive than other supermarkets. How is it justified, I feel ripped off. I have to travel to buy the bulk of my shopping can't you have prices inline with the Other supermarkets. We've all got to eat, but costing more is a bit unfair. This is the reason there not busy, people go elsewhere and only get supplies if they have too.
Saturday 13 October...Purchased a box of Magnum ice cream.....On arriving home I opened the box...which appeared to have been correctly sealed...gave out the first two which were fine...the third one, the wrapper had been opened and half of it was missing...with teeth marks clearly visible in the ice cream/chocolate. Too late to return to store as it was 1710 and the store already closed...?????
Not so fast checkouts
The fast checkout lines at Hallett Cove for customers with only a few items can work really well if managed fairly. Unfortunately it doesn't matter how long the queue happens to be, or even if only one or two checkout operators are on duty, priority service is ALWAYS given to anyone purchasing cigarettes. A cigarette customer who approaches the service counter from outside the shop is always served immediately, regardless of how long other customers have been waiting in the inside shop queue. Placing profits ahead of fair service appears to be the Foodland approach to its customers waiting patiently on those "not so fast" checkout lines.
Meat at Foodland
Chops at Mawson lakes Foodland very tough I did talk to the manager who basically said leg chops are tough - well not from other shops!!!
Black and Gold Butter 500g normally $4.89 was on Special today at Drakes Surry Downs for $4.92. Printed on a yellow special ticket which was placed over the normal price.
Renovations costly to customers
Since Foodland Happy Valley have renovated its store (which is very nice) I have noticed my groceries are costing me a lot more every week. I cant afford to shop there now so have gone back to Woolworths to give them a try.
Neck chops under lamb 4 quarter chops
i stopped shopping at the local butcher because our Foodland was far superior - however meat quality is slipping - so disappointed to find 2 disgusting gristle filled neck chops hidden under the 4 quarter that I paid for! Don't be like Coles
And Woolies please!!
I do my shopping at foodland Munno Para shopping centre Main north road smithfield sa for the last six seven months the quality of the beef chop packs have been over priced and packed with mostly bone and not much meat on most of the chops and a few very big ones full of fat. I also have a big complaint about the quality of the steak it is always full of water and very tough. I cook all my meat on a goerge foreman griller plate and the drip tray is always quarter to a half full of water. The rest of the meat in the store is good and I have no other complaints about the food. The staff are always nice and polite and the weekly specials and the prices of the new products are excellent . I hope my complaint can be rectified.
Last Christmas, my local was selling Millel Parmesan,Pecorino and Romano at a certain price in the deli section,(I could dig out the photos) and then when I had them grate it, the price was more than 50% extra. There was no sign indicating this was the case-and it had never been the case previously- I wonder if they hoped we just wouldn't notice in the Christmas rush? I pointed this out to one of the store managers and he didn't even offer to sell it to me at the price listed on the shelf. I left it there and happily bought the same prod...
They promote themselves as a store that has local produce and that is a store that supports buy Australian but i have noticed that they are starting to sell a lot of foreign foods and they are putting them on special and promoting them in there weekly catalogues that you get in the post box. The stores seem very crowded and disorganised and there is always stuff on the floor and the staff are nit that helpful but in the plus side they do have great specials that save me a lot of money sometimes. They are locally owned which makes it better then giving your money to faceless suits.

Sorry, I'm also a pensioner and live near the hills, Bit fare away. I would ring Foodland about deliveries. I wish you the best and stay well and safe.
Good luck Judy. Haven't heard from Foodland with a positive reply but hope that on Monday they will reply.
Keep well. We must be aware of 'the arms length rule" To add to the confusion, we all have different length arms !!
But why post in a review site rather than ask them directly?
Why does the Foodland at Yankalilla frequently run out of advertised specials? The specials shelves can be empty at any time during the cycle, including the first couple of days. This happens regularly, at any time of the year and when I ask about availability, the reply is often that the supplier is responsible for stocking the shelves or the store has been busy! In my opinion both of these issues are easily addressed by effective management. JH
So why expect the public to know in a review site.
Does foodland milk support dairy farmers? If it doesnt i wont buy it!
