Re: High Street chain collapse sweepstake

Grainger Games - a gaming store chain based in Newcastle with 67 stores has closed all its stores. It's a shame as they always had great service and they were reasonably priced - the one in my local town centre was always quite quiet, but the Grainger Games in Sale where I used to live always had a...

Re: "Select Convenience" from Bargain Booze?

It was so strange seeing that place become a convenience store in the first place - wasn't it originally a pharmacy and a fishing tackle shop? I vaguely remember popping into the new Spar once when it opened but I wasn't particularly enthused by it. It's got a lot of competition with Best One at the...

Re: Poundland to buy out 99p stores

Slightly OT, but I was in the Stretford B&M Bargains earlier - it's in a former Woolworth's unit (in a shopping mall). Looking around, I suspected that most of the fittings haven't been changed since Woolies' demise. That seems to be an ongoing thing with B&M Bargains - their Sale store didn't chan...

Re: The Asda Thread

Moving off the topic of Asda (yet again), I went into Tesco in Stretford for the first time in ages today. I only went in to catch up with someone who works there, but I was quite surprised to see that they've now caught up with the 21st Century and have the self-service checkouts. It's had those f...

Re: The Asda Thread

If we go to The Trafford Centre we tend to pop into that Asda aftewards, mainly for the DVDs mind. Have you been to Krispy Kreme opposite? Nice but what a rip-off! I know that Asda in Widnes (which isn't very big) has a Maccies inside it. Theres a good Tesco down the road in Irlam, but it's some dr...

Re: The Asda Thread

Is Asda Trafford Park the only Asda with a McDonalds in it? the old co-op hypermarket in palmersville, just outside newcastle has a mcdonalds in it. I don't see the appeal myself. It throws any healthy living image out of the window. I don't particularly want to eat shit whilst doing my shopping, b...

Re: The Asda Thread

I've been moved to look at my nearest store. It's in the midst of a unpleasant part of town so I'm not inclined to go, but what on earth is ASDA Living? Clothes and Furniture AIUI, they have one just off the A56 in Altrincham. It used to sell Electronics, CD's, DVD's that kinda thing, but they drop...

Re: Premier Inn or Travelodge?

I've stayed in both, and to be honest, I couldn't tell the difference between the two.

Re: Baffling local news stories

That is true. I love the way that the Messenger is so obviously biased towards Labour. Their Tories in Turmoil section proved that their paper isn't worth reading.
