Could you remove the student card system to reduce the prices seen in the shop as since jan of 2017? The prices have been a little high and students would like to see if this would help

Unfortunately, we can put the ‘genie back in the bottle’ on this one I’m afraid. A majority of transactions use cards in the shop, and these come with a charge from the card issuers. We have absorbed this into prices which has caused some of the confectionery prices to rise (as the profit margins are so slim on these). We have put a lot of effort into negotiating with the card companies for a better deal and this will have minimised the impact on prices. Prices are also rising for other reasons – raw good prices are increasing and wages are ever increasing so I’m afraid it is inevitable that prices will rise at times.
