UPDATE: Woolworths Australia have confirmed their half price sale on freezer items will happen AUSTRALIA WIDE this Thursday, March 14.
Confirming the news to a shopper via email, the Woolies announcement was posted today on the always fabulous Markdown Addicts Australia Facebook group.
In the email, a representative of Woolworths wrote to Markdown Addicts member Lara: ‘A selection of freezer items will be half price this Thursday 14th March until 11.59 AEDT or while stocks last.
‘This offer is Australia wide, and online only. The promotion excludes Woolworths branded, Low Price Always and Prices Dropped products. More information will be available online on Thursday. Thanks.”
Who doesn’t love a good sale? Well Woolworths have come to the party, announcing plans for a hell of markdown bonanza on just ONE particular day.
Shoppers at the supermarket’s Maryborough store in Queensland were excited to notice a sign advertising a new Woolies sale - half price on ALL FREEZER ITEMS this Thursday on March 14.
The notice stipulated that the sale was for online delivery and pick-up only - meaning shoppers would have to purchase their items through the Woolworths website. Just think of all those ice-creams, frozen veggies and meals you can buy - holy moly!
Posted by savvy shopper Sarahjane on the always fabulous Markdown Addicts Australia Facebook page, fellow bargain hunters were interested to know if the sale extended nationwide.
After all, just a few months ago Woolworths announced a similar sale - giving shoppers exactly the same deal on all freezer items.
And while the sign has only been advertised in the Maryborough store, other shoppers who claim to work at Woolworths locations around the country claim it’s happened in all stores.
Says one Markdown Addicts follower: ‘All stores ! Excludes price dropped and low price always items. Another added: ‘It’s all stores on the 14th March ... I work at Woolies in Canberra and its on next Wednesday.’
Said another Woolies worker: ‘Lady I work with said she got an email from Woolies stating it is.’
While Woolies are yet to confirm or deny the flash half price freezer sale, shoppers are suggesting that others talk to their local Woolworths stores to see if they’ll be honouring the deal.
Said another: ‘Worth checking online for your local store though.’
Good advice - and it would be wise to make some room in your freezer just in case! For more information as it comes to light, head over to the Markdown Addicts Australia page - click here for more!
