Melbourne shoppers flock to discount supermarket Cheaper By Miles to save on their grocery bills

Shoppers looking to save a buck on groceries find a bargain supermarket selling items for a fraction of the price

  • Melbournians are loving Cheaper By Miles 
  • The store sells heavily discounted groceries 

Bargain-hunting shoppers have discovered a little-known supermarket that sells groceries for a fraction of the price in the middle of a major Australian city.  

Cheaper By Miles, a grocery store in three locations across Melbourne that sells goods close to or just past their best-before date.

Customers are flocking to the retailer for its ultra-cheap prices on items including cheese, oat milk, alcohol-free drinks, toiletries, ready-made meals and more.

They source their stock from suppliers who would otherwise throw it out for being so close to its expiry date and sell it at a heavily-discounted price.

Shoppers are obsessing over the one-of-a-kind store for its ultra low prices amid the rising cost of living including Claire Fastuca who called the bargain retailer ‘insane’.

‘If you aren’t doing your grocery shopping at Cheaper By Miles you are missing out,’ Claire said in a TikTok video. 

Claire, who blogs about food finds from all over Melbourne, was shocked by the super-low prices.

She found oat milk for $1 per carton as well as pea snap chips for $2 a bag, and Dove and Schwarzkopf shampoos for just $3 each all because they are nearing their best-before date.

‘When I say close by the use-by date I mean like two, three months, four months, five months,’ she explained.
