Upon entering it is like a huge supermarket, however all of the items come in bulk packs, although you can purchase some of them separately if you would like to. I began eagerly loading up my trolley, glad that we had a campervan with us to fill up.
At one point my husband asked me "why are you buying a case of pears in dessert sauce, surely we only need one or two cans, not the entire case."I replied to him "because it is $3 for the entire case (24 cans), not per can - how can you not fill up the pantry?"
Some of the items are not that much cheaper than the supermarket, but if you know your prices and look carefully, there are huge savings to be found. Many items I purchased for approximately 50% of the price I pay in the supermarkets and others like the ones above were ridiculously cheap.
If you do not mind your cans without labels (you can always grab a texta and write on the outside what the can contains), you can pick up your groceries for a fraction of the price. Similarly, if you do not mind labels that are on crooked or cans that have slight dents in them these are also greatly reduced.
Many of your favourite chocolate bars can be found in plastic bags containing a dozen or more chocolate bars without wrappers for approximately $3. We also stocked up on household items including rubbish bins, giftpacks and toiletries.
If you get tired from all this shopping, there is Peaches cafe outside where you can take a break.
In my opinion is it worth the drive to Shepparton? Absolutely - I would make the trip once or twice a year and not need to do very much grocery shopping in between.

I've wanted to get up to SPC for years, but on my own who is going to do that? Is there any bus transport from Shepparton railway station to SPC?
OR would SPC in BallaArat be easier to get to be train?
