I am a little less sure about their ranging and display since this is a facility we already provide through our retail club in conjunction with leading suppliers.
I’ve been looking at recommended retail pricing and retailer profit margins on our own brand range and wonder why (space considerations aside) more retailers do not take advantage of these opportunities that produce up to 50% profit on return.
Why you should want to be the Energy Snack sponsor of the England Wales Cricket Board in the West Indies, given all its risks, is quite beyond me. Freddie Flintoff and his pals should have stuck to the Jaffa cakes to energise their performance.
I am unhappy to see our Pringles 99p retail deal flattened by a leading multiple multi-buy offer of two for pound;1.80, a 10% differential! I think that when we invest our margin, ask our customers to do the same and produce point of sale material, we should at least be able to match the multiple offer.
