Important note:
Due to recent events, many stores are experiencing a shortage of certain products. Be aware that many retailers may currently be out of stock or have longer shipping times than usual.
 
Due to extraordinary demand and limited stock availability, some sellers are charging prices far above the average, also known as "price gouging". We encourage consumers to be vigilant about unusually high prices, and compare options before making a purchasing decision. Note that it is illegal for a business to make misleading claims about the reasons for price increases, and it's always a good idea to check online stores of reputable retailers (even if they're out of stock) to find reasonable and normal prices for products.

Some of the larger retailers in Australia are currently unable to deliver to all areas, have stopped delivery service altogether, or are prioritising any vulnerable customers who are unable to go to stores. With this in mind, it can pay off to look at some alternate sources of getting your groceries to keep your pantry stocked.
