I walked through WalMart yesterday, just for nostalgia/ entertainment. Of course NZ has the Warehouse, but you could put four Warehouse stores in a decent sized WalMart.
Everything in NZ is expensive for whatever set of reasons. And if that’s part of the price of paradise, we’re happy to pay. But still… here’s some things that are irksomely dear in Aotearoa… and we don’t really know why since they are grown locally.
These next two are easier to understand… American products have to be imported. But still.
