In the wake of the Sudan-1 farce, covered in the last edition of nouse, you may have been forgiven for thinking Costcutter would pay a bit more attention to what was on its shelves. However, a quick inspection of the cheese section at the Market Square store would quickly flatten that thought.
You will not only find Cheshire cheese at the outrageous price of £1.45 per 200g but also that it’s out of date. Now admittedly it is only a few days out of date so perhaps Costuctter management would think it unreasonable to make such a fuss… Not if it’s glowing blue within the packet! I bet it will still be there tomorrow despite the fact that I told one of the cashiers. Costcutter needs to get it’s act together, you’d think that with it’s monopoly on campus it might actually consider listening to its customer base.
