Woolworths sells the same jar of Vegemite for less than half the price

I'm more shocked to learn that Woolworths still exists in Australia.

Always pack a ham sandwich.  :)

When a tuna sandwich is $11, this does not surprise me.

Well Vegemite isn't food

Woolworth's in Australia is a separate company than the F.W. Woolworth Company from America that operated stores in North America and Europe.

The Australian one was named after the American one, but was unrelated.  Presumably they could use the name because they founded it in the 1920's and the Woolworth trademark wasn't registered or being used in Australia at the time.

An airport? What is it?

well no shiat, they have a "captive" customer base who cannot bring many food items in ( if any at all these days ) so they take full advantage of it.

I appreciate it when I discover that an airport has "street pricing".  PDX was the first place I encountered that.

Also the reason why a Coors Light costs $8 at the stadium. You're stuck there are they don't have any real competition, so they gouge you. Overpay or do without.

They could've taken the opportunity to examine why airport pricing might be higher, but nooooo. It's the Daily Mail reposting Reddit drivel, so we can't expect much substance.

No, I doubt the existence because of reddit.

Yeah, it costs a lot to eat at airports.

1. Airports are run by corporations who then assign sub-leases or concessions to the highest bidder.
2. Said lessees have to charge accordingly
3. Said lessees are obliged either by contract or circumstances to be open lots of weird hours
4. I have no problem paying a price to support a decent wage to the poor slob who has to smile at me while serving coffee and cake at 5am, or 11:30pm
4a. tipping generally doesn't apply in Oz, hence higher prices to support decent wages.

Why would anyone tip at an airport unless they're in a bar?
