In a move that has left customers stunned and elated, a local Woolworths has this announced an incredible 10% off sale on all items, just weeks after the store jacked up all their prices by 30%.
“Now you can buy all your favorite items at an even higher price, but with the added bonus of feeling like you’re getting a discount.” said an excited Woolworths representative. “It’s a win-win situation for everyone.”
When asked about the discounts, which have resulted in the product costing 20% more than a month ago, the supermarket’s manager stated it was all just a misunderstanding. “We had to raise prices to cover the costs related to providing our customers with the best discounts possible,” explained the manager. “However we understand why some of you are upset, and as such we will be offering a further 5% off the item.”
Despite the backlash from customers, representatives for Woolworths have stated the company remains steadfast in its commitment to providing a subpar shopping experience at inflated prices.
In other news, Woolworths has also announced that they will be introducing a new loyalty program, where staff can earn points every time they are underpaid by the company.
