Woolworths worker reveals Tuesday night sales ritual on TikTok

A Woolworths worker has given customers a behind-the-scenes peek at what goes on every Tuesday night at the giant supermarket chain.

Woolies employee Tilli showed herself and a colleague removing the weekly yellow 'price reduced' tickets from the shelf, in preparation for the next day.

“Every Tuesday night,” She wrote in the video.

Every Wednesday, the supermarket debuts a new range of specials.

However, in order to snag a special, a team member has to remove the previous week’s sales tags each Tuesday evening and put the new discounted tickets in their place.

The specials can be found in the weekly catalogue, which is also available online.

Every week, the supermarket giant puts out a new range of 1/2 price buys and specials at midnight on Wednesday – but not before workers like Tilli perform this tedious weekly ritual.

Coles and Woolworths shoppers slam horrific abuse

Coles and Woolworths customers have spoken out online recently, detailing the abuse they've witnessed of young staff members trying to enforce Covid check-in and mask rules at the entranceway of stores.

In a number of posts uploaded to Woolworths and Coles Facebook pages, customers have called for a change to entry security protocols in response to non-compliance with QR check-ins and mask mandates as well as aggressive behaviour towards staff members.

A representative from the SDA retail union told Yahoo News Australia last week that enforcing Covid-19 rules is not up to the retail workers.

“A retail worker can request a customer check in, but they cannot and should not be asked to enforce such requirement,” the spokesperson said.

“Public Health requirements are valid in promoting greater health and safety for retail workers and the community, but enforcement of Public Health Orders is not the responsibility of retail workers.”
