Tesco customers are going bananas over price hike
Supermarket chain Tesco has angered shoppers in its inner-city stores by hiking the cost of individual bananas. The retailer has stopped charging by weight and is instead charging by single banana, meaning the cost of each yellow fruit has more than doubled at its Tesco Metro and Express stores,. Customers were paying 76p per kilogram at Tesco Metro stores, which worked out to about 10-15p per banana depending on the size. "A Tesco spokesperson said,"Due to the higher costs involved in operating our Express and Metro stores there is a small premium on a number of products. The change in pricing took effect last week and one Twitter user noticed right away that the new 25p price was a considerable premium on the 14p the store charges online.
