In the shops now! The sale price may go up, as well as down

25 July 2009

All you have to do, is look at what you're printing. That's it. Just look at it. You may print hundreds of labels, but that's sort of the job, isn't it? And when the sale price is higher than the regular price, is there no alarm bell that tinkles away behind the eyes? No. So we salute you, supermarket offer printer, for your ham-fisted use of the labelling gun and inability to perform routine addition and subtraction.

Bitterwallet reader Helen Oddie has this startling offer just in from Tesco:

Hats off to you folks - you raise the vaguest of half-smiles on the faces of thousands of customers every day. If you've spotted a pricing perplexity, get it in an email and send it to [email protected] Boss.

    If I had seen this before i went to the shop I would have got a picture, they had a reduced item at somthing like £7.99, reduceded from 15p!!!

    I believe what they've done on those sausages is illegal. You can do what you like to the shelf-edge price, but overstickering with a higher price isn't allowed.
