Living Social exploiting people during Coronavirus.

Good Morning,
I really hate anyone ripping off people during
This crisis, this morning I got an email from
Loving social, the bargains included..

12 pack of toilet roll for €15

3 100ml bottles of sanitizer for €29

Face masks at ridiculous prices.

Scum merchants should be boycotted in this
Crisis.

All the best to all the decent people and businesses
Out there.

A cross between someone who doesn't know there are regulations about advertising sale prices here, and someone who MASSIVELY underestimated how quick supply chains could respond (particularly with the Hard Brexit buffer for dry goods which has been in place for a year now).


There is no chance they even had them on sale for the required time at that nonsense original price for 30 days.

I suspect they'll be the scratchiest single ply junk possible too.

Advertisements like this really show why most of these "deals" are rip offs to begin with. As for single ply....I'd say sandpaper would be more delicate!

Hopefully people remember and boycott companies that sought to profit out of this crisis.
Turn their short term gain into long term pain.
