A lot is being said lately about supermarket prices. Mostly, it’s about the false claims on packaging to do with better value.
Today was like most other Sundays for me – I go shopping. And like most shopping days I end up on Sainsburys where I go through the rows of shelves looking for items I need.
Tomatoes in tins were the amusing items today. Actually, the price of tinned tomatoes was the issue.
Look closely at the image – you’ll see two prices. On the left is the price for a single tin. On the right is the economy pack of four tins together. You think you know the big pack will be cheaper, but just check…
Yup. It really does cost much more! And this is one small example of dozens I could have pointed out today.
Should supermarkets be held to account for this? Probably. Will they? I very much doubt it.
