messageSainsburys Dog Kennel Hill price increases
Posted by Passiflora January 11, 10:57PM

After Christmas and the New Year and Sainsburys have a sign all around the store about 'Price lockdown' but a lot of their stuff has increased in price since before Christmas.

Anybody else noticed this?

I was pleased that Glade air freshener - which has been 1.30 in there for a few years - is now locked down to 1. The same price as in Wilko's. Progress!

Some fruit and veg have gone up i.e. a large cucumber before Christmas was 60p and it's now 65p. Pot of original houmous was 1 and it's now 1.35. Pack of fish which was always a fixed price has gone up 20p. Noticed lots of other bits but can't remember prices before Christmas.

I noticed this with Kerrygold butter and put it down to the currency variations in Euro to Sterling having a knock on effect. Presumably impacting other goods too.

This is a list of the items Sainsbury's are saying are on 'lockdown'... [www.sainsburys.co.uk]
What you have to bear in mind with any savings a supermarket offers, is that some other products will go up in price to counter the savings. Supermarkets aren't in the business of giving away money...

Or maybe Sainsburys have discovered that most of their cleaning products, shower gels, wipes, bleach, bathroom, kitchen cleaning products (more or less everything on the list) can be bought in the local pound shops at cheaper prices so they are now 'locked down' for however long?

If you look around, you can find deals - coffee usually has markdowns in different shops at different times.

I manage to shop in Sainsbury's relatively cheaply, but it is hard work.

Apples vary from 1.50 for 6 to 3 for 4.

I do shop around though and get bits from different places mostly. Sainsbury is nearest though. I have noticed that not all items are priced on the shelves which is confusing. Nuts near the jam for instance - some packs are significantly cheaper than others for the same things. None are priced though so I get the cashier to check them and then decide which I want.

Maybe linked to the drop in the value of the pound?

Just be pleased that you don't live in the Falkland Islands where it will cost 10 times or more for fresh fruit and veg.

I don't think so.
