    Tesco price variations

    Was in Tesco's the other day discussing the miserly discounts for food close to sell by & gardening products, only to be told by the guy on the checkout that it's because it's left in large part to the store management which is why we see the wild goose chases posted here.
    He then went on to claim that it's not just the deals which are store specific, the only time store prices are the same is on price advertised products. He'd visited one store where there was little competition and in am affluent area, only to find his weekly shop had cost around 20% more than usual !

    It seems that not only are the deals prices variable, but ALL prices in Tesco are store dependent, and that some stores are dearer / cheaper, than others !

    Cool story, but what's the question?

    Completely wrong. Stuck on labels to the product are store specific price. Labels printed on the shelf are company set and the same in every shop. The only time this differs is between express shops and larger shops

    the guy on the checkout was talking out his backside. Prices are national.

    Prices are not national if I shop in a big tesco in Plymouth then go to callington tesco my shopping is dearer on some items , n this is due to the area as I have questioned this with them and also boots do the same as well my local saltash store is dearer on some products then the one in drake circus which is massive !

    so you have bought the same items in two stores on the same day? Prices can change daily NATIONALLY!

    If that was the case, they couldn't justifiably display ANY prices online.
