PRICE COMPARISON TESCO v. LOCAL

Our team went round the local shops to find out whether Tesco was in fact cheaper than local suppliers, during the month of April 2010.

By carefully choosing local shops in and around Stokes croft, savings of over 20% were achieved.
Here is a
price comparison of a basket of groceries from Tesco Express on Gloucester Road, and the same goods bought from local shops.
