I estimate that our weekly bill at the Co-op has increased by 30-50% over the last year.This is way over any rise in inflation and way over the general increase in food prices. Since the re-organisation there is also considerably less choice and customers are now often only offered a more expensive version of a product.
The Co-op website is about the only supermarket site that does not list all its products and prices nationally. Maybe I'm too cynical,but I strongly suspect this is so they can vary their prices according to the location of each supermarket.
Supermarkets like Asda and Tesco are now much, much cheaper than the Co-op to the point where I can understand why more people seem to be getting their groceries home delivered by them.I support the Co-op for its ethical stance, but I am beginning to feel that we're being exploited because of our location.
I wonder if anyone else feels like this.
