Tesco in sugar scam?

Noticed some split 2kg bags of sugar on the floor - fallen about a foot. Asked if I could have them to feed my bees over winter. Many staff later I was told No as it might get back into the food chain? Eh? Are their floors that dirty? Some stores have said no as it goes to the cafe!
2kg of sugar was £1.20 a month ago - it's now at a 'New lower Price' of £1.68 - how do they get away with that?

They do that so that they can cut the price this coming week in the "mega price war" i.e. the price will go bck to £1.20 !!

They'll have to Taff. Tesco say they're taking £500 million off prices. The scam is that £300 million will be done by ending double Clubcard points. Sleight of hand, as usual. Much - as you suggest - will be by 'reducing' prices that they recently raised.

You really can't trust the bast---ds. But then has anyone ever thought you could? Oh yes, the simple cretins who consistently write here stating that Tescos is the best thing for Lewes since sliced bread. Idiots.

It turns out that Tesco are going to save £350 million on the Clubcard scheme so that £500 million 'war' on prices amounts to even less. And, as someone writes in the papers today, they aren't foreseeing any cut in profits so it looks as if the staff are going to be the ones who pay for any price cuts there are.

Any shop that has a sale mysteriously raises it's prices in the weeks before the sale so they have more "discount" to offer to the buyers
