    Now THAT is a really high value post for us here in Oz, since Tel$tra shut down
    the CDMA network in April. Do try to keep up, or spam elsewhere.

    Don't knock it! I often have the desire to talk to nobody. A CDMA
    phone seems to do that job just fine [1]!

    [1] A number of my *other* phones/SIMs work fine for that as well, but
    that's another story.

    A tin of Aldi sardines is a lot cheaper, and is just as
    effective as a CDMA phone for making calls.

    Yeah, but I have the habit of opening phones once in a while, and if
    you do that - after some time - with the tin of Aldi sardines, you'll be
    in for a nasty experience!

    BTW, why Aldi? Do you guys have Aldi in Oz? (Aldi is originally
    German. I live in The Netherlands. We now also have Aldi stores, but I
    don't think I've ever been in one.)

    Interesting. They're not in SA yet.

    But what's the attraction of "national pricing"? The effect is just to
    have some customers subsidize others. And, despite Aldi's claim, that
    isn't 'transparent'.

    Personally, I prefer the Coles/Woolworths/IGA system.

    What *would* be transparent is disclosure of Aldi's per-product profit
    margin on price tags.

    http://www.aldi.com.au/au/html/ALDI_...al_pricing.htm

    "national pricing - another ALDI first

    "At ALDI we are proud to be the first grocery retailer in Australia to
    introduce a National Pricing Policy across all our stores. We believe you
    shouldn't have to pay more for your groceries simply because of where you
    live, which is why from Rosehill to Rutherford, Bundaberg to Ballarat,
    you'll pay the same low prices on groceries in every ALDI store. It’s our
    way of keeping things fairer for all Australians.

    "Since we opened our first store in Australia in 2001, we've been
    committed to making our prices as simple and transparent as possible.

    "With our first store we introduced 'everyday low pricing' across our
    entire grocery range. Then, last year we became the first supermarket in
    Australia to display 'unit pricing' across all products in our stores.

    "Now 'National Pricing' means everyone can get the same low prices on the
    best quality groceries, wherever they live."

    Thats because the krauts hate all those stupid poms in SA.

    > But what's the attraction of "national pricing"?


    You dont see them gouge customers who dont have a competitor in their area.

    Wrong. Selective pricing does that.

    > And, despite Aldi's claim, that isn't 'transparent'.


    Corse it is.

    > Personally, I prefer the Coles/Woolworths/IGA system.


    No one is holding a gun to your head and forcing you to use any Aldi store.

    > What *would* be transparent is disclosure of Aldi's per-product profit margin on price tags.


    Have fun finding anyone who does anything like that.

    And thats what national pricing is in the sense they are using the word transparent there.

    You're always welcome to bare your arse at the local Coles/Woolworths/IGA.

    Bet you can't point to a single instance of an Aldi store without a
    competitor in the area.


    >> The effect is just to have some customers subsidize others.

    Wrong? Are you seriously suggesting that Bundaberg Aldi customers aren't
    subsidizing Ballarat Aldi customers' purchases of Bundaberg Sugar and
    Bundaberg Rum (if Aldi sells alcohol)?

    It can also occur with "selective pricing", but at least it's avoidable.
    With this "National Pricing Policy", it's completely unavoidable.


    >> And, despite Aldi's claim, that isn't 'transparent'.

    >

    You just said subsidization didn't occur. Now you're saying it's
    transparent?

    No-one is holding a gun to YOUR head, and forcing you to reply to my post.

    It's called an EXAMPLE, Rod. In this case, it was an example of truly
    transparent pricing, Rod.
