I heard Tesco are struggling to change all the stickers on their produce, so they can sell all the out of date food that wasn't sold over Christmas at full price.

Don't all the super markets do it? Any bagged potatoes that are out of date you split them open into the loose potato rack as well

agree, used to do it myself.
Also, broke down the Mars bars from packs to individuals as they were more expensive to buy singular-until they printed 'part of multipack' on the wrappers:thumbsup:
I bet most corner shops do it:-D

Used to do this in Somerfield!!!!

I think that's been stopped now as most have "multipack not for resale" on them, or are a smaller size than standard bars?

Erm. I think, maybe, you need to take a few of the above posts with a pinch of salt.

They're still trading as a going concern, use your credit card and you'll be covered for purchases over £100 anyways :thumbsup:

I ordered the 23rd, and got my stuff 24th. OK before all the administration talk, but great service, and i got bargains

Will be a shame if they do disappear. Mind, i find most of their stuff overpriced. Only shop in there at sale time, and the odd thing during the year at full price.

So don't buy from them?

Well buy, but make sure they fit etc before hand :thumbsup:

Administration doesn't mean the end for a company. They may well survive and go on fighting. The administrators will have to decide that.
