Tesco announces huge increase in profits – by ripping off customers?

Last Updated: April 11, 2024By Tags: , , , ,

I almost spiked this story due to the rabid, indignant response to this X post:

It seems some people didn’t think it was out of order for Tesco to increase its profits because they were still relatively low in comparison with some of the big American supermarkets.

But American supermarkets have a much bigger market from which to profit, and far fewer morals against which to fight. Tesco should be better.

And also…

If a supermarket increases its prices at double the rate of inflation, during an inflation crisis, it is deliberately attacking its customers.

So Tesco deserves all the criticism it gets.

I’m only sorry the profit announcement was made on the day Rishi Sunak announced new penalties for shoplifting:

It would have been better if the announcement had been about pickpockets, because that is what Tesco has been doing to its customers.

As for shoplifters: if they’re in Tesco, I wouldn’t be surprised to see even the security guards patting them on the back and sending them on their way.
