I love this new store, it is huge with a much larger product range to match. Because of this it is not ideal to 'pop in for milk' but perfect for a large shop where you can take your time.
Keep in mind they have a pharmacy in store now and prescriptions are only $3!
I went to buy a few beers for a BBQ and they wouldn't let me buy them because they said I looked between 20 to 25. It was ridiculous! I'm 33 and there is no chance I would look in the early twenties, specially that I have a beard with grey hair. I showed both, my Driver Licence and my International Driver License and they refused to accept them because they requested my passport, which I didn't have with me at that time.
Love the newly refurbished countdown - especially the addition of a coffee shop on-site. Love the new layout as well as the in-store pharmacy. The beer and wine selection has also improved! Definitely worth checking out if you haven't been in a while.
We enjoy our weekly grocery shopping at the Countdown... refurbished one is alot bigger and spacious many more items to choose from and Pharmacy and Cafe addition looks good. Lots more parking space and easy access... Happy New Year and fabulous 2017 to everyone at the Countdown... you guys are great!!! :)
