“Prices Of Most Basic Commodities Have Gone Down Since SI 142 Came,” TM Pick n’ Pay

Retailers in Mutare have indicated that prices of basic commodities have started going down in response to the introduction of Statutory Instrument 142 of 2019. The SI reintroduced the Zimbabwe dollar and made it the sole legal tender for domestic transactions.

Manica Post reports that OK Mutare suggests that prices of many products had been reduced and were in the process of replacing the old price tags. This is said to be in response to the tumbling of the exchange rate on the black market. One unnamed OK Mutare supervisors reportedly said:

Prices of most basic commodities have gone down since the scrapping off of the multi-currency system. Our customers have not yet seen the changes because we are still in the process of changing our price tags.

New prices in OK for some commodities are as follows:

  • 2litres Cooking oil = $25 from $27
  • 2kg Sugar = $10,15 from $10.25.
  • 2litres Mazoe Orange Crush = $16,95 from $21
  • Toothpaste = $5,99 from $6,29.
  • Gloria cake flour = $16,89.

At Spar Supermarket:

  • 2litre Cooking oil = $14,99 from $27.
  • 2Kg Rice = $15.29 from $22,
  • 2kg Washing Powder = $12.99 from $15.95
  • Pack of Tissues = $7.99 from $10.50
  • 1kg Powdered milk = $28.99 from $32.95

Manica Post could not establish old pricing structure at TM Pick n’ Pay Supermarket. An official at Pick n’ Pay said:
