Shop Small and Local, save your community!

By Maurice Curtis August 05, 2014 0 comments

The Monthly has a really interesting article on the Supermarket monsters, and how big supermarkets cost your community,

Some interesting points on the effect on other local businesses are detailed in the article including the loss of local producers

"A decade ago their region had 12 lettuce growers; it now has two."

"“There are only two substantial cherry growers. The raspberry growers have consolidated and gone to Woolworths....."


Small business is finding it harder and harder to compete with the bigger end of town.

Not only do they stifle competition, but they also bring in cheaper and inferior products from overseas, which they then use to beat down the local producer. The funny thing is that the Bigger operators don't always pass on that reduced cost to the customers, as you will find so many better prices at your local store, such Hill Street Grocer, which is talked about in this article.
