Put up prices fast than a ferret up a drainpipe
Tesco sucks. Eggs went up in our local store by 24p on Monday 12/03/2012 as soon as the annoucement about the EU not complying with cage sizes. Aldi's eggs stayed the same price 99p for 10 but Tesco's £1.19 for ten smaller eggs. What a rip off! When they give money off petrol they recoup it three fold by 1. increasing the price of the petrol, 2. increasing item prices in their stores, 3. Leaving higher priced articles on the shelves and not re-stocking with lower priced similar items. They have had numerous small shops closed down, because they could not compete with Tesco's buying power then once all small shops closed prices increase dramatically. Staff (especially the supervisors and those on the deli and fish counters), get all the best reduced prices, they have them put away until their shifts finish, and only then what is left is put out for the general public to buy when staff already get a discount off their food purchases. All in all check out prices everywhere else before handing your hard earned cash over to Tesco. Asda & Morrison's usually have better prices. Tesco rely on captive markets when all other shops in the vicinity have gone out of business. Support your small family shops, you'll get far better customer service before Tesco is the only name you'll see on the high streets and prices will be sky high.
