    GC opp.?

    Perhaps have a look at the SELs and the product that you have in stock for A's Bin Liners as there are new ranges of at least some of them and I think there is scope for confusion. For example, if you have stock of Extra Strong Tall Kitchen Liners 50 litres but the only SEL you have is one for Strong Tall Kitchen Liners 50 litres at 3 underneath them and no stock of the 'old' strong tall kitchen liners, the extra strong kitchen liners are 4 but the SELs may suggest they are 3. There may be others on different litres that may be mixed up, with staff putting the old SELs and pricing for the older range products as if it applied to the new products that are more expensive than the SEL price.

    I had 3 underneath one of my products that is 4; however I also had 4 SEL on the shelf and couldn't be sure that I could say that was an overcharge as they may go back to shelf and see the 4 SEL and the stock on that section of the shelf first. I'm also looking at BCs of products and they are different on the SELs, therefore relate to other products than the stock I have, however most people do not go into this level of detail and may think the 4 product really was 3 when the SEL next to some of its stock says that: problem is I have other stock of the same product elsewhere and 4 showing - no stock is 3. In my other store, I did have 3 stock product and 3 SEL for that but, again, some potential confusion as to whether that also related to Extra Strong liners that, at this point, did not have a SEL. On balance, again I've concluded I can't say there would be an overcharge as 3 SEL clearly - but that is to myself, looking at it in detail - is the 3 product and the 3 label does not relate to the non-SEL product that, judging by my first store, will go through at 4. However yet again I am into the detail of looking at BCs printed on SELs, which many customers may miss. As I've found issues over the 4 product lacking a SEL or having a 3 SEL for a different product that isn't it underneath it, in two different stores, it's possible there is wider confusion across A and that, depending on how your shelves look, what products are or are not there and what SELs you have and what they say - and could be some issue over different litre capacity ones beyond the two I was looking at - you could claim an overcharge as it looks like the SEL applies to a product that is actually higher priced. There are also some cheaper SELs that I have on some new products here in one of the stores that appear to be cheaper priced - you don't want to be messing with those - however they are not there in every store, so if you don't have the cheaper price SEL for a new product but your store has an older product SEL but stock of a new product that is higher priced than that...

    EDIT: Gosh I have gone into a lot of detail again in that last paragraph - more than I thought. I had a brief summary in my mind but I just waffle when I write. Hope it is clear.

    Anyone who has Quidco premium please can you explain the benefits - is it really worth 5 a year?.

    They have sent me an email which says "bonus cashback worth 50 a year" - but is that a certainty or is it a best guess and only really applies to the highest spenders eg people who book hotels and train trips for work trips etc ..

    In the true spirit of Christmas Froctober.

    I thought I would finish up the mince pies.



    What I didn't realise was that they were dated January 2017.

    Good morning all

    TM you are on a roll with all these good buys Thanks

    Did I say I am with my new fitted wardrobes Ok to some this may be strange but it means lots of decluttering of old clothes has been done and its all out of the loft Normally summer/winter rotation

    I have been collecting "stuff" for my friends xmas fayre only to discover a lot will not be required Its too good a bargain and acnt go in as it exceeds the value of the general bag The blind bags that I was sooooooooo looking forward to making up will not be happening She can use some of it so thinking cap on as I need to clear some of it

    I will come back for suggestions once I have improvised on some plans

    Take care and stay safe

    Do you have a local shopping centre? We have a similar issue but our shopping centre manager has kindly agreed to give us some space, free of charge, for us run a tombola stall to raise extra funds. Might this be an option for you?

    We had the free garden gourmet pieces for tea tonight, used a jar of sweet and sour sauce (dated 2014 ) and it was actually quite tasty.

    Still have the mince, burgers and vegetable bakes to go.
