I went into my local feed/leisure store earlier this afternoon to get some more Burns Alert lamb and Rice. I usually get the 7.5kg bag which costs £23.99.

I know Burns have reduced the 7.5kg bag to 6kg and i think its around £20 and they have reduced the 15kg bag to 12kg and also reduced the price.

Anyway, i picked up the 6kg bag and they charged me £23.99 the same as the 7.5kg price which i thought was wrong. I think maybe they are trying to be crafty, i questioned it and they said the price was the same.

Probably theres not many people who would know about the bag size being reduced and would carry on thinking they were getting the 7.5 kgs for the same price.

I left saying i would be buying elsewhere :rolleyes: Does anyone actually know what the correct prices are for the bag reductions please ?

its very common practice now for companies to reduce package sizes instead of increase price but I dont know if your company were right in that it is the case here

well this website doesnt even make sense, the rrp and selling price are the wrong way round!!
