article imageTesco launches school uniform for $5.82

Is your child nagging you for the latest gadgets? Perhaps a digital camera? Maybe a smart phone? It’s in our nature to cut back wherever possible, and while saving money on parental essentials will free up extra pennies to spend on your child, be warned
Modern day supermarkets are in a constant battle of limbo, lowering prices like they’re going out of fashion. Tesco is no exception to the rule, having recently introduced a £3.60 ($5.82) school uniform to the British market. Can’t argue with that, can you? I think so!
Tesco’s “Back to School” range is a popular choice throughout the United Kingdom, including sweatshirts priced at £2 ($3.24), polo shirts at 75p ($1.21) and skirts at £1.75 ($2.83).
In regards to Tesco’s competition, Sainsbury's is offering a full school uniform for £6 ($9.71), while Asda’s is £8 ($12.95) and Marks and Spencer's at the slightly elevated price of £11 ($17.80).
Although you can’t argue with the value, the quality quite clearly raises concerns. The polo shirts will probably disintegrate upon contact with fresh air, but more disturbingly, what kind of shoddy operational procedures are the helpless manufacturers abiding by? Well, I’ll leave that to your imagination.
All I can is that Tesco makes Marks and Spencer's look like Ralph Lauren.
