The Woolworths boss said the feature will roll out to all users in the coming weeks and is a great way for customers to monitor their spending.
“We’re also updating the Woolworths app and website so you can see the total price when you make a listing – a great new budget-friendly feature that lets you track your spending before you shop,” Mr Banducci said.
“It’s already available to over a quarter of our Woolworths app customers and will be available to everyone else by the end of November.”
Mr Banducci also used the letter as an opportunity to update customers on issues with delays and stock levels for some fruit and vegetables.
“As the La Nina rains continue on the east coast, we could see a delayed start to the season for fresh fruit and vegetables, including cherries and stone fruit,” he said.
“Poor weather, particularly in Tasmania, has also affected supplies of frozen vegetables (such as corn and potatoes) and potato chips. The good news is that mango season is on the way with a bigger supply.
“We’re working hard to ensure we stock enough of everything, but please be patient if you see any gaps at this time. Bad weather has exacerbated ongoing supply chain challenges (e.g. shortages of raw materials, pallets and truck drivers) so it is far from easy.
“Of course, the weather has also hit many communities hard with flooding. Along with the many examples of what our local store teams are doing on the ground, we are working with our partners – The Salvation Army and OzHarvest – to provide assistance where it is most needed.”
