Waitrose joins Tesco in reducing price of sanitary products to cut 'tampon tax'

Friday 11th August 2017

Waitrose has become the second major UK supermarket to announce it will cut the price of women’s sanitary products and pay the “tampon tax” on behalf of its customers.

The high street giant is following in the footsteps of Tesco, which announced last month that it will drop the price of almost 100 products by 5%.

Waitrose will reduce prices by the same amount. The cut will apply to 97 different products, including named brand and the retailer’s own-brand goods, and be implemented over the course of this week.
