Smart Consumer reader Tom Cleary got in touch to warn readers to be on the lookout for high-priced bird foods.
Tom was shopping in Lidl on Parnell Street in Dublin recently when he spotted a man who was buying up huge stocks of Erdtmann Wild Bird foods.
Tom writes: "Commenting on this to someone in Moore Street an hour later they said that they knew him and that he buys up most of the stock to sell on in a pet store or market stall!"
For the record, the prices in Lidl are €2.99 for the Erdtmann Bird Nut Distributor, Bird Seed Distributor and Eight Part Feeding Chain, and €1.39 for Erdtmann's Fat Balls.
