A series of price marked promotions is being run by Carlsberg-Tetley this year. It begins this month with 500ml cans of Skol at 65p, 500ml Castlemaine XXXX at 75p and 500ml Carlsberg Export at 89p. These give independents a competitive offer with attractive margins. The brewer said price marking is wrongly regarded as a restriction for independents. Head of impulse sales Stan Middleton said: "These are an opportunity for independents to establish themselves as convenience stores and provide an alternative to multiple specialists." {{DRINKS }}
