COSTING A MINT

 

DONAL MOORE,

Madam, - This morning I bought a tube of Polo Mints for 36 cent. No big deal - but how come I was charged 64 cent for an identical packet "airside" in Dublin Airport on October 21st? (No mistake, I have the receipt.) Can somebody please explain the reason for an 80 per cent mark-up on such a simple item? Or is this a classic example of the type of tourism rip-off that is becoming all to prevalent here? - Yours, etc.,

DONAL MOORE,
