Re: The Unofficial Sainsbury's Thread

Weekly shoppers saving £200 a year really doesn't sound much to me. A couple of quid a week. With Clubcard Prices it seems like you could save a lot more.

Re: The Tesco & other non-Morrisons supermarket thread

Asda's new advertising is much improved since the takeover. They've ditched that embarrassing "ASDA Superfan" campaign (if you can even call it that) and it's finally clicked that the Asda Price pocket tapping was the strongest messaging they ever had. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dnWUY...

Re: Another High Street Rebrand

This documentary by Iceland is an absolute belter for supermarket history enthusiasts. Loads of high quality archive material, thanks to Iceland's in-house archive collection. Very impressive and fascinating. https://youtu.be/7HdbUliH470 Huh, a non-red logo. I've never seen that blue one on the thu...

Re: The Unofficial Sainsbury's Thread

Is it just me that thinks Chop Chop is a dreadful brand for that service. It's just as rude an expression as it is to snap your fingers at a waiter isn't it?

Re: TV Live Forum Watch News and Information Board

As much as I roll my eyes at some of the posts by new members, I think it's worth remembering some of the drivel we all posted when we first started. If there's anything I learned from the demise of TVF, it's how many people would lurk rather than post because they didn't want to be shot down for sa...

Re: The Unofficial Sainsbury's Thread

there are still businesses around which either don't take card or still have quite high minimum transaction levels (my local Chinese takeaway will not take a card below £15, with my regular order being slightly under that so I have to take cash out specially for them). I have never understood why c...

Re: High Street chain collapse sweepstake

A 15:17 department store has opened in the former Topshop in Cardiff and it's actually not half bad. https://i2-prod.walesonline.co.uk/incoming/article20770896.ece/ALTERNATES/s810/1_rbp_mai080621shop7922JPG.jpg https://i2-prod.walesonline.co.uk/incoming/article20770888.ece/ALTERNATES/s615b/0_rbp_mai...

Re: The Very Official McDonalds (and other fast food outlets) Thread

Has anyone tried the "fake McDonalds" products from Aldi yet? The only one in our Aldi on sale is the big mac. I'm waiting on the McNuggets and Hash Browns. If they can do microwave fries and curry sauce like Maccies though I'll I'll all over that. Iceland also have fake McDonalds product...
