Shock for customers as they find pubs have increased prices by up to 10% as lockdown restrictions ease
As if things weren’t bad enough with Covid and lockdowns now we are feeling the affects of prices rising across the board for consumers. People are flocking to the pubs with the lockdown restrictions easing and are finding that the prices have gone up around 10% in some pubs for a pint of draught lager. One brewery Star Pubs and Bars who are owned by Heineken UK have suggested that customers will not notice the price increases because most of them are paying by card. This particular case is an insult to the intelligence of customers from a brewery that lost over £176 million in 2020 but points to a wider problem that we are all beginning to face.

As reported previously by A Spokesman Said there have been price hikes in many other areas such as a car wash previously costing £20 going up to £25. Many people responded on social media to this saying some of their experiences of post lockdown price jumps. These included the price of barbers going up, nail salons charging more and even some customers noticed how supermarkets are offering fewer buy one get one free deals than they did in the past.
We all understand that businesses have struggled during Covid and there is a real appetite to support them from customers who are eager to get back out shopping as lockdown ends. People themselves have also struggled and will not accept these increases in the long term, it is understandable for businesses to try and recoup some lockdown losses in the short term but this cannot continue in the future for consumers. Make sure to always shop around as you spend your money after lockdown.
