Woolworths employee reveals best time to score specials
A Woolworths employee has revealed the best time to shop to score markdown specials, sharing on Facebook the times when prices on particular items are reduced.
“I work at Woolworths and I do bread markdowns at 7 pm every night,” she posted.
“I also do produce, meat and dairy. But they also do markdowns in the morning as well, not sure what time because I work night shifts.
“There’s also a possibility that other stores do it at different times of the day.”
Another employee revealed morning markdowns happen in-store before 11am, depending on stock levels, but also said catching the right time for markdowns is "pretty much pot luck".
“I work at a major supermarket, there is no set time,” commented the employee.
“I see people with these awesome markdowns, comment on what a bargain they’ve got and good on them.
“It’s pretty much pot luck with markdowns.”
Meanwhile, other shoppers said mark downs depend on your local store’s habits.
“The store manager or department manager in each and every store has their own routines,” said one shopper.
“Just get to know your local store’s habits.”
When does your store do markdowns? Have you noticed any price specials patterns worth sharing?
