    the small supermarket near my place is always 10-20% cheaper then the PnS or the Wellcome nearby. Unfortunately they carry only a limited selection of goods...

    As noted in a recent consumer council report the supermarket prices are in general 5% higher on Fridays, so you're not saving anything - just not getting scammed like the rest of us.

    Right, so in a way you pay for a large selection and convenience.

    One of my favoured examples of discounts/packages that don't make sense is on the parknshop website. 1 bottle of Babich Sauvignon Blanc costs HK$ 89, the pack of 3 bottles of the very same wine costs HK$ 276... go figure
