On Thursday, Opposition Leader Peter Dutton called on Australians to boycott Woolworths following its decision – and said to shop at Coles, IGA, and Aldi.
“I think it’s up to customers whether they want to go in and buy the product or not, Mr Dutton told 2GB radio.
“If they don’t want to celebrate Australia Day, well that’s a decision for them, but I think people should boycott Woolworths.
“I would advise very strongly to take your business elsewhere and go to IGA or Coles or Aldi. I think until we get common sense out of a company like Woolworths, I don’t think they should be supported by the public.”
