How can Coles and Officeworks defend this price difference?

raincoatI purchased some plastic ponchos from Officeworks for 69 cents.  A couple of days later I noticed very similar ponchos at a Coles supermarket priced at $4.00 each. I can’t figure out the reason for such a price difference. Coles and Officeworks are owned by the same company.

    Mark, Coles doesn’t have the same price points in its stores here in Adelaide.
    We are in the eastern suburbs (like your Toorak) and our Coles is much more expensive right across the board, than other stores in Adelaide.
    I think they work on having the same promo items but their other items are far dearer here than elsewhere.
