There is long-held debate around the major supermarkets – which is superior?

Through one of The Brag‘s Facebook pages, ‘Good morning to everyone except‘ we’ve surveyed readers to find out: between Coles and Woolworths, which supermarket is better?

The result may surprise some, but Woolworths has come through as the preferred supermarket. Not only have they been voted as the best, but the margin is high.

Out of 26,800 voters, over 17,000 have claimed Woolies is the superior supermarket. On the opposite side, 9,400 voters prefer Coles as a supermarket.
