Woolworths employee Liam Kirley, from Sydney, has revealed a little-known feature to help customers know exactly when the best times to shop to avoid huge crowds

‘Here is a shopping hack to know how busy your local Woolies is at home,’ Liam said in the video.

‘So search up Woolworths Q Tracker, enter your postcode and it’ll tell you how busy your store is and if there’s any [queue] wait.

‘The information is provided by the store, whether that’s how many people are in the store, how long it takes them to shop and queue wait times.’

The data gets updated every five minutes so shoppers will have the latest details whether they are about to leave their home or on their way to shop.
