WHERE TO PURCHASE PACKS OF CRISPS AT CHEAPEST PRICE ???

Found 17th May 2012
Hi Guys -

As ive mentioned a few times on here - we run a small tuck shop for our local junior cricket team.

As part of this we simply try and buy things like pop and crisps, chocolate bars etc at the lowest possible unit price per bag or can of coke etc and sell them at a price that can make a decent little profit - all profit goes towards running the club itself.

We sell our bags of crisps at 50p and our cans of pop at 70p

We recently managed to get full size bags of walkers crisps at our local B & M for just 10p each - therefore 40p profit was made on each bag which was excellent for us.
We also bought multipacks of coke from Tesco and i believe these cost us appox 35p per can so again almost 40p was made per can sold.

Can anyone please tell us where we can purchase more crisps and cans of pop, chocolate etc at its cheapest price as unfortunatly the B & M store no longer has any items for sale.

Thank You

naughty!!!
Costco.

If you register for VAT, you'd claim most of your VAT back as well, although it is a pain doing VAT returns every three months.

Why is that naughty, they may be printed with "part of a multi pack - not to be sold separately" or similar but this is not legally enforceable.
you'll make a fortune

tesco has the 16 bags of walkers buy one get one free at the min and there £2 a bag so getting 32 bags for 2 pound making its just over 6p per bag so making a bit more then bargain madness prices. there just the normal salt and vinegar, ready salted and cheese and onion in the offer hope this helps
Don't know the prices but check out Boxes of Crisps at Farm Foods or ASDA but make sure they are
the ones with 32.5g (approx) per packet. Some multipacks are only 25-28g and I think its unfair to charge full price for these. Also have you looked at Seabrook multipacks in supermarkets, they are full size packets but you won't make as much profit. I also agree about Home bargains.
Chocolate is often on affer at 4 for £1.00 at different supermarkets or I buy them in Iceland/Farm Foods at 7 for £1.90 (Mars-Snickers-Twix-Kit Kat etc) , Stock up when they are on offer!

ordered before when free delivery offer was on. Got £100+ of groceries for £30 delivered and all is perfect quality despite some being out of date by a month or so.
why dont you try a cash and carry? my girlfriend ran a tuck shop for a short while at the youth club that she helped out at, they were able to sell pretty cheap to the kids but werent trying to make a big profit out of it.
