|The West Brom factory store started a competition to win a £30 meat hamper on 13 Feb 2017 and which, to date, has had 1076 shares:
The Astley factory store started a similar competition 5 hours ago and which has already had 563 shares:
Times are hard and you just have to 'like and share' to get entered but those numbers are still interesting re the factory stores and following on from vicarage's post #4848.|
|Perhaps, the new business rates are a possible / further explanation re CRAW seemingly going down the factory stores route; and in areas with historic low rental values?
|A news report from Southwold this morning about a local butcher who has had a 175% increase in his business rates.. about £1k a month.|
|Programme of possible interest last night; "Supermarkets: Brexit and Your Shrinking Shop: Channel 4 Dispatches."
Have you got a light Mac.|
|I decided to take a stake in this one after the market seem to knock the stuffing out of it. It is hard to make ends meat currently as we have had some lean times but it always pays to buy the dips.|
|I wouldn’t be surprised to see him pop-up on the shareholder register just before the annual AGM so Noel shouldn't be jumping for joy just yet and Colin might very well join him.
I may struggle to get a word in edgeways, that’s never happened before.|
|Ask him he's on LinkedIn|
|He has had a fair few quid out of the group.
Did he buy these?
|Why would he sell now? Either he thinks the company is not worth 17p or he has taken a job in a competitor and has to? Not sure what to make of it to be honest.|
|So who bought then? Think we could find out shortly.|
|That would likely be the 1.3mill sell yesterday morning.|
|I see that Kevin Boyd has ditched his holding:
|The title from this song from the 90s sums it up vicarage:
|From what I am seeing Bilston and West Brom opened within a couple of weeks of each other and the prices have been different since opening so whoever thought up the pricing structure should go if they are still at the company
It's everything that's different prices between shops..... It's nuts !!
If it was the same prices I would use Bilston but as it's cheaper in West Brom I go the 4 or 5 miles down the road|
|Cheers for that shakkaa; previously saw on the website that the 'featured employess' section - and which did used to feature one of the area managers - stopped featuring employees around Oct 2016....!
supernumerary, that would be the ideal scenario though probably not likely to happen to a significant extent re those buying FTG will primarily be there for breakfast or dinner; ie either going to or during the working day. What I have seen is persons buying their meat for the week and then also buying the cooked chicken and cooked joint for a fiver from the FTG for that night's tea, etc.
Bizarre tactics re Bilston / West Brom. If there is no prospect for the high street shops then they need to be binned off sooner rather than later. If they can be / are viable then the prices need to be consistent at both; logic that you might get a greater discount if buying in bulk at the factory shop but if you're just buying one lot of product A then the price should be the same at either store. Perhaps another, ahem, well thought out 'gimmick'??|
|Would make a great story the next time they need to raise funds for a change of direction into more factory shops...
"Yes, look at how well the sales at the factory shops are going ! (SHHH - don't mention we're nicking all the sales off our normal shops)."|
|vicarage13, that's ridiculous them doing that unless they are purpusly running the shop down to close it and build the factory shop up.|
|Those chicken breasts are fantastic value
The problem as I see it is the difference in prices between the factory shops and the High St shops
As I live in Wolverhampton I went to the Bilston High St shop to check on prices on flavoured chicken drumsticks for a party which was coming up and they wanted £2-50 for 750g
The woman I spoke to advised me to go to the West Brom factory shop as prices were better
Never knew there was a shop in West Brom so off I went to find it and we got 1.5 Kg for £2.50 ....3 packs for £6
It's crazy, same company, same suppliers I would think but different prices ?
We now pass Bilston shop to go to West Brom factory shop
Bilston dead.....West Brom rammed
It's business suicide and they know it|
I also noticed the braising and casserole packs had been reduced in weight, but still bought, not just because I have an interest in Crawshaws but because it is still good value for a good quality product and being a Yorkshire man I had looked around and couldn't find it any where else at the price.
Not happy with it but that's the way it goes...when I went next time I bought the 5 kilo of chicken for £20, had several packs of those...excellent value.
Also I note when shopping at ASDA (not for meat) the prices there are rising and not just by the governments published 1.8% inflation figure...but they don't always tell the truth do they!
Thanks for the info on the factory shop, we haven't got one very close but I will have a run to Rotherham to look in there when I next need a freezer filler.
|Vicarage...you make an interesting point re the price of braising steak....but prices do fluctuate and the meat price is affected by currency....With sterling being weak, British beef looks cheap to a euro buyer...I have just checked online to see what price braising steak is at ASDA....£10 per kilo Whilst at Tesco it is £7.47 per kilo, Morrisons is £9.97....Craws price sounds competitive to me|
