The "Poundland Style" non Bargains
in Food Shopping & Groceries
9 replies 3.3K views
Following the recent TV programme about Poundland's so called bargains which were shown to be dearer than supermarkets because pack sizes were less in weight but looked the same, I thought people should know that the main supermarkets are playing the same game. I've noticed today that Asda are selling Galaxy bars (125g) for £1 and Sainsbury's are also selling their Galaxy bars (114g) for £1. To look at they appear identical but the price per 100g is very different. I wonder how many other goods are being portrayed in the same underhanded way. It seems we've all got to be even more vigilant when price watching and the only way to be sure is to go on the unit price. I know a lot of people don't have time to, but I check prices online before going to the supermarket, and it's surprising how much I can save by splitting my shopping between the two main local supermarkets.
