    1. Hi Emily, since prices change regularly it is best to call the store on 9295 6440 to find out the current prices.

  1. I’ve never done wasteless shopping before? How many containers should I bring? Is there staff on the floor that can assist? It would be useful if there was a price list online so it is easy to budget

    1. Hi Stef,
      I know it can seem daunting at first but it really is easy to shop this way. Maybe just bring a few containers to start with or as many as you need for your staples and a couple of random extras. There are always our team to assist and they can even shop for you if you prefer. If you are concerned about pricing, feel free to give one of our stores a call to ask for prices of your favourites 🙂
