Picture of the Week: Booze School

Tesco place a “Back to School” banner above an alcohol display in Swansea

 

Shoppers at Tesco in Fforestfach, Wales were controversially confronted by a display of gin, vodka and whisky complete with a “Back to School” sign in recent days.

Tesco’s sign should have read “Back to the Booze” rather than “Back to School”

 

Posted on Twitter by a user named James Davies, the revelation at least attracted an honest response from Tesco. A for the supermarket spokesman commented:

 

“This photo was taken whilst our displays were being changed over. While we understand that it may have raised a few eyebrows, it would only have looked like this for a few minutes”.
