    Wow abirdo, that’s an eye opener.
    Dick Smith’s comments make sense, but I can’t see his suggestions being followed by many.

    No, I don’t shop at Aldi(even though on the coast there are 2 Aldi stores)However last Monday, outside Coles,where I had been doing a weekly shop, there was a young man standing by a car near me, he was a pleasant courteous young man who opened the door for me.I was surprised to see an ALDI badge on his shirt & asked if he worked at Aldi,yes he did (now this Coles store is miles from any Aldi store, I couldn’t think of the nearest one from where he worked !)He offered the information, that he was at Coles(he obviously had brought a person, not wearing an Aldi badge who I bought a packet of Cornflakes, it was only on arriving home, I noticed those Cornflakes came from Germany, I was horrified because I realised the hurt this could cause Australian farmers,incidentally the C’flakes were 10 cents cheaper!

    I’ve looked in Aldi a couple of times,  intending to do some shopping there,  but I couldn’t find most of the things I wanted to buy, so left and did the complete shopping list at Woolies.

    Seems I should have checked my post before posting!
    What I meant to post, the young man volunteered the information, his reason for being at Coles, was to buy things that Aldi didn’t sell!
    Also, my negativity re Aldi,I once bought a packet of Cornflakes there & after arriving discovered the Cornflakes came from Germany, not Australia. I thought the hurt this could cause to our farmers.

    Speaking of Cornflakes … Choice has an interesting table re Breakfast Cereal … health value and origin etc. at (you’ll need to scroll down for details):

    Dont forget that Dick Smith got all his stock from Japan for his shops no Australia goods.

    He also wiped out Tandy shops.

    I notice that Dick Smith’s cereal is the only cereal owned & grown in Australia

    Yam, Tandy is sure a name out of the past.

    I googled it and they were apparently bought up by Woolworths.

    Even his(Dick Smith) own stores have disappeared now.
