Casino products in Big C are sold at an average 300% of the price in France. Some of them at 1000%

That's absolutely not true... Most have quite similar price given that the vat here is 7% vs 20 in France.

I really hope they keep selling the casino product, the quality is so much better than products at Tesco (for my taste) or imported cheese from Australia for example...

I think this will be a plus as Big C standards have dropped since Chinese  imports have overtaken those from France and Australia

Not being a Brit: What's special about Morrisons' products that another brand does not provide?

Nothing and I never liked any of there attempts at a lot of own brand stuff. Do not expect this to last long. Just opens the door for replication.

Uttaradit does not have a Big C yet but one has been proposed , how much extra are people going to have to pay for all of these imported goods an example i usually the Australian cereal Weet-Bix which was 98baht per box of 24 rom Tesco Lotus but it is now 108baht so i wont be buying them any more it seems that Tesco is raising the prices of most things making it very expensive to shop there these days especially with the exchange rate the way it is on the Aussie dollar .

Worried about 10baht extra on weet-bix.....try corn flakes.

You mean packs of cards, roulette wheels, chips, croupieres, dice, .....I thought gambling was illegal in Thailand.

Wow- do you want us to take up a collection for you to cover the extra .4166 baht per bix? Times must be hard.

I don't believe that. The casino brand is decent and not a bad price on the pork items. The jamon at 200 baht is a decent price anywhere and the sausiccon at 159 is not bad either.

Well let's see who is talking rubbish.

 

I'm not your lackey, but I looked up just 1 product that is available at big C extra for about 300 Baht. And in Casino Paris at 40 Baht.

 

You're right, the 300% was rubbish,  I should have said 800%
