The best news for us veggie lovers is a 2.5 kg bag of potatos for 25 p, or do you fancy a brocolli for 28 p? Supermarkets are always conducting price wars, and these vegetable price cuts are definitely making me a happy bunny.
As you may know, I am loyal to no supermarket. I shop at M&S (don’t think I’ve had one bad thing from there ever!), Sainsbury’s, Tesco, Co-op, Morrisons and Aldi. Basically, I try to steer away from Waitrose as those prices scare me just a little bit…I had to do without brocolli the last and only time I did a weekly shop there, as it was £2…gulp. I don’t mind paying for quality, but there’s a limit.
Anyway, the Aldis and the Lidls are basically making larger supermarkets a bit hot …
Yep, you read it right, a penny cheaper than Asda! So Morrisons have got a promo on at the mo, where some vegetables are super cheap. I bought carrots, brocollis, potatoes for 28 p each, and there were other veggies there too.
It really is heating up in the supermarket wars! And the pack sizes are not stingy either at Morrisons. The carrots are 1kg for 28 p, would have been 68 p normally. Brocolli which tends to be around 49 p for the cheapest and 500 g swede which would be around 50 – 75 p normally.
Oh and if you can’t get to Morrisons store, go and shop on line as most of the same discounts apply, though I couldn’t find the potatoes.…
Morrisons has revealed its Match & More scheme in bid to boost sales. Morrisons is first to offer a price match against budget chains Aldi and Lidl.
The supermarket is launching a new loyalty card which will give customers points if their shop would have been cheaper in another supermarket – including the budget rivals.
The Match & More card scans a database of thousands of products to find the cheapest shop.
It is the first system which compares prices with budget chains Aldi and Lidl.
Morrisons Chief Executive Dalton Phillips said the scheme was ‘the best of its kind in the UK.
‘Because it price matches the discounters, the Match & More card will provide the ultimate guarantee about Morrisons’ value-for-money.’
This new initiative follows on from the move In May, when Morrisons said …
Watched dispatches Supermarket Wars tonight. It was interesting to see how the Big Four supermarket sales are stagnating or decreasing while they are growing by 23% for Lidl and 39% at Aldi.
While the discount stores aren’t pretty, one of the reasons they can keep their prices low is that they don’t offer the variety as do larger supermarkets.
On average supermarkets stock 30,000 different products while discounters stock 1,000+ items. So less products, mean less storage, people needed and costs.
One lady said she would have spent £100 at Sainsbury’s but instead she got her shop for £53.
However, the discounters are not only for the cash strapped, but are also offering a small range of “posh nosh” which helps to change middle-class consumers’ perceptions. I wrote last week about the riding gear special …
Our Morrisons is having a major revamp and it’s part of a bigger drive to cut prices for consumers.
I recently asked if Morrisons could really take on Aldi and Lidl in terms of pricing. Well, let’s just say, they’re having a good go at it.
On 1 May, Morrisons pledged to cut the price of 1,200 products by an average of 17pc. I saw evidence of this today in my shop, with a firm favourite Jammie Dodgers down to 49p from over a £1.09. This price matches Aldi’s.
Looks like Morrisons is banking on the price cuts to encourage shoppers to spend more at the shop and less at Aldi and Lidl. Now I would welcome that as I would be able to get everything in one place and prefer Morrisons products sometimes.
Good news for us maybe as Morrisons joins the discount wars.
I shop mainly at Aldi and complement it for my favourite branded goods at Co-op and Morrisons, so when Morrisons said today that they will be giving us more discounted products, that made me smile.
Sounds like Morrisons won’t become a discounter itself, but they said that “prices would … be just low enough that their fresh food and quality offers would be worthwhile.”
I already noticed their market street offers with some fruit and veg for 49 p including broccoli and cucumber, and this week saw 3 selected veg for £1.50 or 69p each.
Now if I could get a bigger value range at Morrisons, I wouldn’t bother with Aldi, but currently they don’t compare, and neither do the other supermarkets. You get …
