    Default Tesco to cut prices on 5,000 Groceries Order products

    Tesco has announced that it is cutting the prices of more than 5,000 grocery products in Ireland from Monday in response to the abolition of the Groceries Order.

    The company said it plans to reduce the prices of 5,000 more products by early next year until all items previously controlled by the ban on below cost selling are cut.

    The average reduction is of 4.7%, and Tesco is promising no other prices are being increased to compensate.

    See? To the cynics who said the removal of the Order wouldn't bring down prices...you were wrong and should admit your mistake. Hopefully rip-off Ireland will be consigned to history in the next while.

    Anyone who thought food was all of a sudden going to be free the day after the order was scrapped was living with their head shoved up their… stomach.

    It’s a step in the right direction. Really don’t see how this can be a mark against the gov
    Something obscure and witty that makes me look like i know something.

    It's not completely good news. Why do you think Tesco do this?

    To compete with rivals for market share, which in turn will force competitors to do the same or lose business.

    That may be harmless enough, but it's those retailers who aren't rivals of Tesco that should be watched.

    There...it's working. 4.7% is not to be sneezed at. Now the others are likely to follow. It's funny- when shops dont cut prices they are ripping us off , and when they do they are clearly up to something.
    The political establishment lacks both vision and courage.

    Not really. Look at the press release.
