Re: There an election this year.....

The SNP collapse was much bigger than I expected, even Dundee moved from a 12,000 safe seat to a 645 marginal. What I find odd is the suggestion that reform's vote share is somehow surprising. It's the same UKIP got in 2015 when they came second in several places, before said vote being reabsorbed i...

Re: The Unofficial Sainsbury's Thread

Was asked about potential new 'Nectar Price' SEL designs in a survey: https://up.metropol247.co.uk/scottishtv/2406_nectar_sel_designs.png I believe this is to allow the introduction of esels - at the moment the use of Nectar purple on the ticket itself is a blocker. In what way? Are those plastic c...

Re: Old supermarket signage

The Tesco Express in town has had its main outside sign updated to the new one with the branch name and Est 2012.

Interestingly it has the lower 15% in that stupid wood effect. it looks awful.

Re: Yet another Morrisons thread

you can't get your more points added on retrospectively either. and given that the app is always timing out and the pay at pump doesn't give you much time that's not ideal not sure if you could get them added in the main store. the people in the petrol station seemed completely disconnected from the...

Re: Pres Cafe Watch News and Information Board

Pete, you seem a sound fellow... so I don't quite understand why you and others here are so keen to stifle any negative discussion about Pres Café? I have no issue with people discussing or criticising Pres Cafe. I have issues with the site, and tbh preferred TVLF, I simply don't use it enough to b...

Re: Another High Street Rebrand

Cant think what difference that made to fit outs? tbh the thing that got me was their claim it would cost £10m as if that was new money they'd need to find. The majority of clubcard price branding is replaced every few weeks anyhow bar some end of aisle signage which again needs replaced in due cou...

Re: Another High Street Rebrand

Why you'd want a trolley 1/2 way round the shop is a mystery. When you realise you've bought too much and have no hands free. compared to Sainsbury's and Tesco which have had 1 refresh in the last decade. No Tesco have had a few... they went from the light blue to the "Hello" branding wit...
