Sugar Almost 5X More Expensive at Fusion by ParknShop

I was surprised the price difference of the 1kg pack CSR Raw Sugar could be close to 5 times among local grocery shops.

The Australian-made 1kg CSR Raw Sugar is selling for HK$9 at PrizeMart. The same product is selling for HK$42.8 at Fusion by ParknShop.

Both shops are just 3 minute walking distance apart in North Point district.

Both shops are selling the sugar with long expiry date, exceeding 18-months. CSR, established in 1855, is a premium sugar brand in Australia. PrizeMart imports its products directly from Overseas and Fusion may have source its products from Hong Kong distributor. The price gap is just too extreme.
