Tesco error prompts booze rush in Scotland
Every little helps say Tesco, especially when they've got a glitch in the system that helps already willing Scots get drunk on the cheap.
An error at a Scottish store in the tills ended up slashing the price of beer and cider, leading to a rush of customers piling through the door to exploit the supermarket giant. A deal that offered three boxes of various boozy treats for £20 was going registering on the checkouts at three for £11.
Of course, this news spread like wildfire across the internet from around 7pm, with people either getting in on a good deal or simply having a laugh at the expense of a company that makes huge amounts of money.
One human on Twitter chirruped: "Price glitch for beer has literally caused a stampede at the local Tesco. Tempers are flying in car park."
Such was the rush that the police were alerted to the Tesco in Greenock after the carpark swarmed with giddy people, causing heavy congestion.
Sadly, the spoilsports at Tesco quickly spotted the pricing error and soon, all the cashiers were putting correct prices through.
