Mercadona Yellow Sticker Price Reductions
09 September 2018 @ 09:00

In recent years I've noticed Mercadona putting yellow reduced price stickers on items that are shortly to be out of date.  The round yellow stickers says "Bajada de precio - Fecha de consumo proxima".  Typically the items are reduced by between 20 and 50%, so nowhere near as good as some of the reduced deals you can get in the UK at the likes of Asda, Morrisons and Tescos.

Mercadona don't leave it until the end of the day to start putting these stickers on.  I was in one morning recently and there were already a lot of yellow stickered products on the shelves.  The prices only seem to be reduced once, unlike in the UK where the yellow ticket prices are reduced in stages throughout the latter part of the day.

I've not seen any of the other Spanish supermarkets doing these sort of reductions before.  Maybe they do and I've just missed them...
