Exclusive to Woolworths?

Dear Editor,

Home brand mainly bottom end low cost grocery products retailing exclusive in Australia and New Zealand under the Woolworths flag are sold here in Samoa Supermarkets. 

Do these items have the same liability cover as in Australia and New Zealand consumer protection laws, which are very stringent or is Woolworth coming to Samoa?

Is Samoa becoming a dumping ground of unsellable goods?

One day I had a conversation with a Chinese businessman. I asked how’s business? His answer was interesting. He said: Business is very good here in Samoa; because Samoan people eat anything. 

Being silent and ignorant makes one guilty.
