Back in August, regular commenter poedgirl alerted us to the fact that items on sale in Coles didn’t always have unit pricing accurately indicated. It seems Coles might have become more efficient at that process, with specials now correctly showing unit pricing.
Unit pricing — offering price information based on consistent units, such as per 100gm — has been compulsory since last December. The ACCC says that most larger supermarkets have adopted the regime well, but there’s room for improvement with online stores and some smaller supermarkets.
Supermarkets will soon have to provide “unit pricing” to make comparison shopping easier. Which stores have to feature them, and what quirks should you watch out for?
