With Easter just around the corner, I thought it was time to go Easter Egg shopping. As I have a big family who always exchange Easter Eggs each year, I needed to find great tasting Eggs at reasonable prices.
I browsed through Easter Eggs at Coles and Woolworths, whilst they were competitively priced between the two of them, and had some specials, it was still going to cost me a fortune to buy the quantity I needed.
I occasionally shop at NQR when they have something that I need in their catalogue, so I thought I would have a look, on the off chance they were selling Cadbury Easter Eggs.
I hit the jackpot of Cadbury and Red Tulip Easter Eggs that are at least a few dollars cheaper than other supermarkets are selling them for. The big Cadbury bunnies are $3.99, white chocolate bunnies $3.49, medium hollow eggs $2 and chickadee eggs $2.
NQR (Not Quite Retail) doesn't sell sub par items. Some may be close to best before date or deleted categories (ie, lines the big two supermarkets choose to no longer sell or if there is not enough stock for the big two) but every store has to sell fit for use products by law so they are safe. Just read the packet, use by dates all the info is there by law or just keep spending more that you have to at the big two supermarkets!
