Products at Costco Supermarket Australia

Thousands of people have flocked to the opening of a new supermarket Store COSTCO that threatens to break Coles‘ and Woolworths‘ stranglehold on the Australian grocery market.

The new store, which carries 3600 different product lines and employs around 230 staff, is being seen as one of the first serious competitors to the big two supermarkets and stocks a mix of name brand products from Prada to Vegemite along with no frills home brand items.

Prices are definitely competitive at the moment with a 3 litre carton of milk sells for $2.79, around a dollar less than the price in Coles or Woolworths. A carton of 18 eggs, meanwhile, costs $2.29 at Costco compared with $4.35 in Coles and nearly $5 in Woolworths.
