Firstly,  to everyone who has posted positive and complimentry comments about our new business...Thank you very much. Right... now on to all the misguiding, narrow minded and, lets be honest here, just plain stupid ones! Last time i looked Tesco didnt have a presence here in Italy and even if they did do you not think that a multi million pound company might just have a slightly bigger purchasing power than a single little shop tucked away in sleepy Marche? So to compare our prices to Tesco's is just ridiculous! As to our pricing policy...yes we are  more expensive on some products than britishcornershop...equally we are  cheaper on many many more...something the person neglected to mention when making the comment. Combined with the fact the we charge E10,00 for a 20Kg box (not 10kg as stated in a previous comment) against britishcornershop charging £17.99...well im sure you can do the maths yourselves. To be called and i quote from another comment here "a company who sells prepacked, sterile junk foods and sweets"...excuse me!!.....Scots Poradge oats, Ryvita, Colemans Mustard, Rose's Lemon & Lime Marmalade, Fresh Cheddar, Stilton, Bacon...i could go on but think i've made my point. The last point i would like to make is about changing Italian tastes...In the 6 months since we opened the shop we have see an increasing amount of italians come to shop...about 30% of our customers now! Some know exactly what they want whilst others come in to browse and are more than willing to try pickles, sauces, biscuits and many other things. So to say Italians are not adventurous on other cuisines is quite frankly slightly ridiculous and insulting. Of course everyone is entitled to their opinions, whatever it maybe, but you really shouldnt air them on a public forum without checking your facts first...especially when your ill informed comments could effect someone else's ability to earn a living and provide for their family.
