CITY VIEWS: HAVE YOU NOTICED PRICE RISES EASING IN CONSUMER GOODS?

TONY KIERNAN

“Not so much with food – but to be honest I don’t do the shopping, my wife does. I’m more aware of the price of petrol – it often stops me getting in the car.”

PHILIP GIFFORD
DELOITTE

“I’ve definitely noticed food prices stagnating, especially bread and milk. Prices have risen so much over the last year or so, but they seem to be leveling off.”

MAUREEN BOYLE
BANK OF IRELAND

“No, I haven’t noticed. I’ve got kids, so rising prices do affect me. I’ve started to buy a lot of supermarket own brands lately – the kids still have to be fed!”
