UK: Somerfield gives customers £0.5 billion in discounts
Somerfield today turns up the heat in the supermarket price war by launching one of the largest ever on-going price promotions, investing £0.5 billion in discounted products in the first 12 months alone.

Megadeals, however, will give shoppers £26 million in savings in the first two weeks.
