Fooling the Consumers?
« on: November 02, 2013, 12:14:48 AM »
I have heard that some companies lower the quantity of their goods so that they can keep the price at the same rate? How is this true?

Well, if you’re wondering why your Cheerios isn’t raising its prices, it’s probably because they’re cutting with the packaging and keeping the box while lessening the amount of cereal in your box. It’s a marketing ploy where manufacturers keep the size of the container while lowering the cost of the item.

I totally agree with you guys on this one. There have been numerous consumer tests about this and time and again, the item that you have bought last year may not be of the same quantity as what you have bought now. The tissue roll may be thinner, and the contents of containers, leaner.

A good way for you to save money is to pick the right kind of grocer. There are grocers that are really into lowering their prices and it’s best to pick them out. Just talk to other people in your neighborhood or workplace and see to it that you can get a suggestion as to where you can do affordable grocery shopping.

I think the reason why they do this is because they don't want to increase the price of the item. There are so many companies who are doing this. We all know that the prices of basic commodities are increasing, at the same time, companies have to maintain their prices so that they will not lose customers.
