As another day passes on this alpine country... People are constantly asking themselves this; When will the local retailers adjust their prices? When will my filling up costs fall by 20%? Will they ever? Should I just cross the border and get what I need where it's cheaper?
And before you know it sales figures are falling and retailers are having to discount their prices to entice their customers to shop locally. They have no other choice.
I popped into our local coop yesterday evening and noticed that a lot of fresh goods had those orange stickers on them reducing the price by 50%. It seems that sales must have already taken a hit and they are having to clear fresh produce at least.
