Price List For Luxor Thread

Post by Zooropa » Thu Feb 28, 2013 7:07 pm

Aye up Guvnor, isnt it time that the locked thread above were updated or removed?

Its rather pointless as it bares not resemblence to reality anymore, being 5 years old.

Would be really useful if it was updated rather than delleted but i think something should be done?

It would have been much more useful if the information had been updated rather than deleted!

Brian the prices are changing constantly so by the time I have a price list up, it most probably be wrong... for example chedder chesse can range from 28le to 44le a kilo, tomatoes went from 2le a kilo to 15le and then dropped back, cigarettes will be going up another 50 piastas to 1.75le soon.

Have never smoked but as I was standing a checkout line today and staring at the Camels & Marlboros I did note they were $7UDS/pack. Have no idea how this compares to other areas of the world - just prices I saw today.

Have never smoked, but last summer my Norwegian relatives complained that 20 cigarettes were NOK 80 = $ 14.

Hahaha Bombay 1.75le price increase on a packet of Marlboro/Merit, which sells at the moment depending which shop you go to from 14le to 15le.

BTW Marlboro/Merit were 7.50le when Mubarak was in power.

You'll pay more than $18 a pack in Australia...... they are hoping the cost will help people give up. Not to mention the increased revenue, of course. :|

Gee, hmmmm - can see a new use for dried up camel dung............particularly if the Aussies took a shine to it followed by the Norwegians! Camel dung and a few grass clippings and the next Millionaire is made! :mrgreen: :mrgreen:
