Tesco blames pricing discrepancy on computer error
Industry research found that shoppers in some stores north of the border have been paying an average of 5% less on a range of 800 items during the last three weeks.
Tesco has denied that it is attempting to introduce a two-tier pricing policy blaming the price differentiation on a technical glitch.
A spokesperson said: “A relatively small number of products were incorrectly priced by a small amount. This was caused by a technical error as our Scottish stores are being moved to a new pricing software system. The error has now been corrected.”
