Eggs Down and Out at Coles and Woolworths

Eggs Down and Out at Coles and Woolworths In the old days bread, milk and eggs were the staples of our diet. Ok, those old days were a long time ago – almost back to war rationing days when families faced empty shelves as supermarkets ran out of essentials. Post-war the world returned to normal and the shelves were always full of food. When in short supply, some things became luxuries and were signalled by limited supply and high prices. Just as we see with the price of lobster, wagyu and out of season stone fruit.
