While shopping at Tesco this morning I noticed a Tesco own brand 16 piece dinner set for £6.97 or €13.99. £6.97 equals €10.14, that is €3.85 less than the listed price.
I fully respect Tesco’s right to set prices, its rare we see the differential at all, good to note the price hike. I chose not to buy it.
If I lived near the border I could buy this item for €3.85 less. Whats with the markup? Its their own brand and not subject to RRP from manufacturer. Tesco customer care is due to call me and explain.
Every Little (hidden markup) Helps!
