Have a budget supermarket chain on all campuses

Extra Information: In a capitalist society, students on campus should have a choice of outlets to use. The SU shop is quite expensive (and tiny on Glenside Campus). I am proposing a deal with Aldi, Lidl, or even Tesco or Asda, to have a small outlet on each campus to offer cheaper alternatives for students in cash strapped times. As a university, UWE should be promoting good money management, and the SU should be ethical in how it encourages students to spend.

Actions Taken

11:33am on 13 Nov 18 Agreed. Pricing on food items in the SU shops as well as food cafes such as Atrium, and ONEZONE when compared to other supermarket/Restaurant's pricing is incredibly, and unfarily expensive, especially as it is for students. ONE individual "muller corner" in the SU is priced at 0.99p where as you are able to buy a pack of SIX in other supermarkets such as ASDA for as little as £2.00

7:04pm on 25 Oct 18 I do believe that the SU shop could be subsidized more, however I do not believe encouraging large chains with little to no interest in us students and our well being is the way to do it.
