CHOICE Member in the Spotlight

Member in the Spotlight JimBarbaraPollardweb

Introducing Barbara Pollard, a fitness instructor, mother of five, grandmother to 12, and great-grandmother to two. Barbara has been a CHOICE member for more than 50 years!

Why did you join CHOICE?

My husband first joined in 1960. Money was tight, and we needed to make sure that the products we bought were going to last. I continued our membership because I wanted to keep up with current information.

What section of CHOICE or CHOICE online do you look at first?

I go first to stories on health, because they help me with my work as a fitness instructor, and then I read the whole magazine from start to finish. I also find CHOICE Health Reader to be exceptionally useful, keeping me up to date with the latest research.

Have you made any CHOICE-recommended purchases?

My husband and I made dozens of purchases based on CHOICE recommendations over the past 52 years, especially whitegoods and electrical appliances. Every time we needed to buy an item we would ask, "What does CHOICE say?"

What product would you like to see CHOICE put to the test?

More Queensland-based products.

What do you tell people about CHOICE?

CHOICE has helped me to buy reliable items for over 50 years. The independent reviews are trustworthy. I can be confident no one has influenced the results for their own good.
