Not Following COVID QR check in Codes
Whilst walking from my car to enter the IGA store Georges Hall I noticed at least half a dozen shoppers NOT using QR code to check in and given we are currently in lockdown I find this irresponsible on the part of the customers and more importantly the store for not only not having a very visible QR code system or not a visible check in ensuring customers are checking in. And it is not much better at Woolworths Bass Hill. These are my local stores for essential food

IGA Mascot New South Wales
What a disgrace!!!
Fresh produce is always off and mouldy yet charging sky high prices. Do you always get the produce that is beyond rotten! Because that's all you sell. Worst fresh fruit and Veg everrrrrr!
We see the ads on T.V about being fresh however Mascot store botany road Mascot would have been fresh about a month ago, of not later.
Disgusting, disgraceful and they still charge excuberante prices when it's well past its life date. A government body will be notified!
IGA built with fenced in hungarian slave labour at bLacktown
meat stinks, has anti biotics creates back ance and puss, chicken eggs cause depression anxiety probably fed wheat and soy
After months of the Malvern Vic store having an apparent fire and being closed with no info on reopening, I have contacted their HO at least half a dozen times by phone for info on an opening date. Each time I’m told they’ll get back to me which never happens. Great service to your customers!
Awesome staff, great food and grog! Downside is it’s always cold inside the store! Not sure why but you have to dress up like an Eskimo!
‘Scratch and win’ - the hidden competition!
Normally, I’m very happy with my local IGA at Lindfield,
However, I’ve just found out from tv advertising tonight that IGA is offering ‘scratch and win’ comp for purchases of $30+, with a warning that the comp closes ‘soon’ on 23rd Feb. . I shop at IGA Supermarket regularly but have never once been offered these ‘rewards’. Makes me wonder if IGA genuinely values its regular customers.
Community care, i don't think so.
Only had 7 $30 legs of lamb. I asked them for a smaller one or to cut it in half.
They would only cut it in half if i took both pieces which they wrapped and priced together.
Elderly and single people cant eat a 3kg leg of lamb.
Morgan's IGA Brantome St Gisborne will poison someone selling fish contaminated with amonia
I bought 6 pieces of gummy shark "marked down" but still at least $60. Cooked 4 pcs froze 2. There was a very strong smell of amonia we did not realize it was the fish until it severely burned our mouth on trying to eat it. Luckily spat it out. On smelling the fish amonia was so strong it took my breath away. I kept it all to show the manager. On the phone he was rude and unconcerned. Told me he would never buy fish that was marked down. Blamed me for buying it. I pointed out his marked down fruit and veg was also rotting in the packs, meat was...turning green. He said it was for animals. So poisoning customers pets is OK?. Nothing was marked not fit for human consumption! He was also unconcerned about the serious toxic mould growth all over the wooden boxes containing marked down items in the fridges. He told me to call in the next time I was passing for a refund. The duty manager was even worse. The rudest most unprofessional woman I have ever encountered in any retail shop. Refused to smell any of the fish despite the amonia smell from the raw fish being so strong she backed away and it made my eyes water when I opened the plastic bag. She said what do you expect its old. It did not smell of bad or rotting fish just amonia. She refused to look up the amount I spent despite me asking her to and the manager told me he would leave a note when I rang. She said "he" the manager told her to just give me $20 because I did not keep the receipt the exact amount could have been found on the register given I told them exactly when the purchase was made. No customer service. Rude. and a serious breach of the Health Act which stipulates ALL food sold in Supermarkets by law must be be fit for consumption! And thieves pocketing at least $40 of my money from selling me potentially poisonous fish. IGA is overpriced with the worst quality fish, meat, fruit and veg anyway is business so bad you need to rip off your customers as well? I would never shop at any IGA supermarkets again. This would not happen at ALDI, COLES or WOOLIES. This is how IGA treat customers for supporting local small business.
Waterford IGA Is Going To Kill Someone.
Threw out $10 worth of chicken straight into my green bin that was within the use by date because it smelt so rancid when I took the plastic off to cook it that I couldn't even bare to have it in the house.
Then last night I opened up a 1.8kg eye fillet which was also within it's best before date had also been stored correctly in my fridge but smelt rancid as soon as the packaging was cut open.
I took it back today and was planning to swap it for the same cut and weight but management wanted to charge me the difference as the eye fillet isn't o...
The slogan itself is false advertising in my eyes and experience
We all know that IGA's cost more, but why so much more? It could be said that they don't have the buying power as the big supermarkets, but when you find out that someone actually owns multiple stores then it gets a little hard to digest such an excuse. But the most insulting part are the ads on TV which say either "Everyday low prices" or "how the locals like it". The only thing to goes low when you enter any of their stores is your bank balance and NO its not how I like it and as a local I have three to choose from so its easy to compare and the result is the same.
Overpriced and a con
A number of times the discounted products have been well passed their sell by date and discounted by less than 1%. Our local IGA in Southbank will not add an offer on your bill and charge the full amount unless you check and sell rotting vegetables at full price.
Smaller than its big brothers with almost as much choices
Amazing how small shops such iga Rose Bay offer so much choice. It's the only place I could find herbal tea Natureland. A staff member was kind enough to put aside ten boxes for me upon my phone call. The boxes were set aside at the main cashier ready for me to collect. Really appreciated, thank you IGA!
I went shopping in IGA Yesterday and the woman refused to pack my groceries in my cloth bag she said i had to buy one I had left the others 50+ IGA bags that I have already purchased at home so I grabbed one out of the car
Been shopping here for over 10 years. Great store and friendly staff.
Has a hot food section with roasts, hot chips, chicken wings etc. Yummy.
No close by competition.
Prices are dearer than the big 2.
Have seen a number of incorrectly priced items.
Has a ‘reduced price’ section for week old fruit and vegs.
Listed as a Supa store but does not have all items nor all those listed in weekly specials.
I would like to know why the prices of products at IGA are so expensive and overpriced for an item.
Eg.. western star butter. Almost $8 a tub when you can purchase same item at a cost of $5.90 at milk bar
Why are your prices so high???
Its highway robbery and absolutely unnecessary to put such high prices, especially your 'black&gold' items..
Its blatant over pricing at a ridiculous calculated 'rip off' to the public..
There's absolutely no need for this type of greed!
Questions & Answers
Hi there, I am trying to enter the "Shop, Scratch, Win" competition and am having trouble finding where the actual "Receipt Number" on the document please?
I bought some $17 lamb chops that were so tough and chewy they were practically inedible. They were fresh but can I ask for a refund due to dissatisfaction?
Is Sorbent frangipani thick & large still being produced?
Hi Alan, frangipani collection is no longer available. I haven't seen it for a long time. Some time end of collections can be purchased in one dollar shops (or equivalent shops). All the best on your quest!
