    I actually had a bargain today, a tin of luxury chocolate biscuits reduced from £10 to £5,
    nothing wrong with them the tin is in good nick and every thing looks pucker, so even if this is old stock or some thing how can they knock £5 off.
    I enjoy my choc biscuit with a glass of milk and these ones are excellent, a mix of dark, white and ordinary chocolate.

    If the store buys in sufficient bulk they get such a huge discount that they can sell them for that price. I know from one particular wholesaler a pub that buys x amount of a certain product will get so many for free. If they sell them for their normal price then they're all profit (well nearly), or they could do a crazy promotional deal.
