    Default Re: What items do you find over priced here in NZ

    Here's a link about Bunnings prices and NZ v Aussie

    https://www.nzherald.co.nz/business/...ectid=12168854

    Its our smaller market.
    But our wages are lower which means staff costs are lower
    And Australia has to ship the goods to stores all over Australia (mush bigger distances than here)
    So what colour is your Adkaf?

    Australian shipping is such that somebody buying an item just arrived in store is possibly paying today's freight rates for something that left the supplier on the other side of town 11 years ago when prices for freight were much lower. (I guess the shipping covers storage and warehousing charges for the incredibly protracted delivery times.)
    Entropy is not what
    it used to be.
