Shop in the discount stores.

YET another top supermarket has announced a significant loss once again putting the blame onto the German discount food stores.

Why don't they just admit that it is because of their pure greed that they now find themselves in this position. They spend a fortune on the pretence of offering price cuts while at the same time reducing the size of the product and on most items increasing their profits.

My wife and I and members of our family started shopping at these discount stores when they first opened two in Cwmbran almost 20 years ago. We could fill our shopping trollies with excellent quality produce and at half the price of the major supermarkets.

It is still the same today with genuine offers. money off vouchers. But with no conditions attached.

So instead of blaming the German discount stores for their loses do the same as them offer realistic prices/discount offers then maybe some of your customers just might return.

A small profit is better than none.
