I think this because it is highly likely that the products are made in the same factory so the idea that one store sells products of better quality than another store seems psychological. Tesco doesn’t compete for price. Their products tend to be much more costly than Asda’s, for instance, they sell KP Hula Hoops- Original (7x25g) for £1.00, whereas Tesco sell exactly the same product for £1.67, currently on offer 3 for 33.50, which still cots more than Asda. This saving of 67 pence may not seem like much but the total sum of the price difference is very large, also when customers do their shopping, these small savings are very effective and save them quite a lot of money.

Explain. From January 2005 to November 2005, the U.S. dollar appreciated about 15% against the Euro. This means that, when compared to the U.S. dollar, the Euro depreciated 15%.
