Incredible price rises at Tesco, Penang

I am just back from Tesco shopping. Not fun, but necessary.

 

When Tesco opened the vegetables and fruit were considerably cheaper than the wet market. Not so, now. On the way to Tesco we shopped at Mt. Erskine wet market, where beetroot, for example, was RM6 per kilo. At Tesco the price was over RM8 per kilo.

Vodka, locally produced,  in Tesco has now increased by about 10%.  Canned fish is more, but I can’t remember previous prices.  But the biggest price rise that concerned me was basic cheap soil I used to buy each time.  It was previously RM1.40, but now is RM1.90, a 36% rise.  The better soil is almost RM5, about a 40% price increase, too.

Up from RM1.40 to RM1.90!

Another massive price rise on this product.

I will be looking for a new source for soil.
