EUSA shops over charge on stationery and clothing

EUSA shops, EUSA-less can reveal, take substantially higher profit margins on stationery and clothing than they do on tobacco products.

What is the logic here? Charge students more for pens & paper which they use in their studies and charge them less for cigarettes which affect their health and litter our pavements? Surely the shops should be driving down the cost of basic stationery for us?

Mr Vincenti, the shops general manager, explained the difference in profit margins to the Union Executive last month.

Needless to say, no EUSA representative seemed surprised by his revelation...
