Price Watch October 2013

Yawn! Carrots cost 75p for a 1kg bag this month….

Co-operative Hedon rooftopOUR Food Prices exercise during continues with only one unsurprising change this month – carrots are back at £0.75, and for a 1kg bag.

In this continuing year of austerity, shopping carefully has become essential – particularly for those families on a tight budget. Our Price Watcher exercise is following the prices of four staple food items in the Big Co-op on Hull Road. Note: These are often different from prices in the smaller Co-op Store in Hedon’s Market Place which charges convenience shop rates for the same items in many cases.
