Can of Coke 1.30
500ml bottle of Coke 2.00


I know its not good for you but it was nice for now and again but that's the end of buying it anymore.

Those prices scream "corner shop" or "convenience store". Prices are a good bit cheaper in bigger stores, was in Dunnes in Omagh earlier and a can of Coca-Cola was 85p, a 10 pack at 5.95 and 1 litre bottles at 1.30.

Heard a nurse on the news saying this morning he only started nursing this year but hes gonna quit due to the pay? Would you not know the pay when starting a job ?  :-\

Would be interested to hear what big salary job he has lined up as an alternative. Sorry for generalising but I find the available labour market pretty flaky these days.

Yes I can.. Because maybe if they hadn't made a pigs arse of the economy by going through more PMs than hot dinners we wouldn't be half as bad, also brexit when NI voted against it.
