A Woolworths customer has caused a stir online after sharing her huge markdown haul of heavily discounted fish.

The Australian shopper was branded ‘greedy’ and ‘selfish’ after saying she bought ‘every single packet’ of premium salmon and trout that had been marked down from $11 to just $1.10. 

She posted an image of her trolley filled with the fish packets to the popular Facebook page Markdown Addicts Australia and attracted a slew comments with many jumping to her defense.

‘Imagine being that selfish, how embarrassing,’ one woman commented while another wrote: ‘Certainly some greedy people around these days’. 

‘Yes good price, but wouldn’t it be nice to leave some for someone else,’ a third said.

‘Couldn’t agree more. Greed seems to take over. Putting a few packets back could’ve fed another family for the night but no one thinks of others these days,’ another responded.

Other shoppers applauded the money-saving mum for her impressive haul with some warning to check the quality before cooking and questioning whether the fish can even be frozen.

‘Love a shelf clearer as you saved that department from having to put it down as dumped when no one else’s buys it. Love your work,’ one shopper said.  

‘Excellent score, better eaten than in landfill. Freeze that and eat happy for days,’ a second replied.  

‘I only ever bought salmon once when it was marked down and when I opened it, it was rotten. Too close to use by date for my liking, especially fish,’ another explained.

‘Be careful it may not be able to be frozen, need to read the packaging,’ one shopper suggested.
