    Another Tesco Massive Price Increase

    Another Tesco Massive Price Increase 4th Oct 08 at 5:32 PM
    The Whitworths 500gm white sugar cubes which have been priced at 36p are now priced at 77p.
    Before there is a plethora of postings advising me thatthis is the way of retailing, I would point out that a) the SEL did not show it as a limited offer and b) Tesco appear to be funding its claim to be Britain's biggest discounter by discounting junk food but increasing the prices on some staples. Isn't that them being a bit hypocritical ?
    I am only posting this to inform other MSErs who may wish to go to their Tesco and see if they have any stock left at the lower price.

    Always bought tesco pasta sauce for 89p - went to buy it yesterday and it was up to 1.39 - no wonder their flipping profits are up by 10% on last year when they are just putting there costs up by such extorinate (sp?) amounts. Try not to shop there these days if I can help it - what rip off merchants - it's just legalised theft in my books

    Rant over.

    What's 'sharper promotions'? Is that the spike before the bogof? Sorry got a skeptical head on this morning.

    So they're also going more into banking what happens when a supermarket this size goes pop? I think their size and scope should be limited both nationally and in towns and areas.

    I've still got my skeptical head on. PR is often intended for both customers and shareholders and will mean different things to different stakeholders. Customer - "Your getting special offers" shareholder "we're making a killing and passing the benefits on to you".

    This is revealing:

    Tesco 100g cat food trays.
    Were 19p for over 6 months. Now suddenly gone up to 29p!
    And the real cheek is that they say the Ham/Chicken was 35p, now reduced to 29p!

    Never been 35p at my store, perhaps they had it at that price in one shop in the middle of nowwhere.

    Do they think we can't read and won't notice!
    The economy toilet roll went up, although they are bigger, but in this case the packet size is exactly the same!
