A promotion for a sale on jars of Nutella led to scuffles in some supermarkets across France on January 25.
Several Intermarché stores announced that they would offer 950g jars of Nutella for €1.41 each – a 70 percent reduction on its regular price. The result was Black Friday-like scenes as shoppers pushed and shoved each other out of the way to reach the shelves, as seen in this video.
The promotion came on the same day that President Emmanuel Macron was due to announce an outline for draft legislation to reportedly put restrictions on retail promotions. Credit: Kheïra Dak via Storyful
