I see that TGI Fridays is now just... Fridays.

Re: Coronavirus - Strange times

What really takes the biscuit is bar staff and cafe staff wearing those stupid splash guard screens. They provide absolutely no protection from the virus on their own. The Government guidance has more faith in them than you: "...a clear visor that covers the face and provides a barrier between the ...

Re: Coronavirus - Strange times

I'm confounded by the claim that Cummings sought "senior medical advice" which cleared him to drive back from Durham to London to return to work. We're therefore asked to accept the idea that he reported having problems with his eyesight, and a "senior medical advisor" confirmed—without any test or ...

Re: Another High Street Rebrand

It's taken the full year but we now seem to be in the position where only the mysterious Just Right remains in the older packaging I see Special K has now switched to packaging that doesn't feature the word "Kellogg's" at all on its front panel... apart from one letter, of course. https://up.metrop...

Re: The Unofficial Sainsbury's Thread

I’d be interested to know how you will checkout for this. Currently the store has no obvious room to install a bank of Smart Shop checkouts like I’ve seen in other already enabled stores unless they took out some manned checkouts. Perhaps the new barcode scanners at the manned checkouts will someho...

Re: Yet another Morrisons thread

Apropos of nothing, I thought this thread might enjoy this unusual sight I spotted earlier this week:

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

And updated branding coming worldwide too. Suggests an interesting shift in their approach to product photography: "No more muddling up the photos with unrealistic props like marble surfaces, cutting boards, glass bowls, and linen tablecloths. We wanted to be more authentic and celebratory of the wa...

Re: End of MAY

Just a thought and I don't know if it would be possible. The day before the new leader is announced, could May go to Buckingham Palace and ask for permission to dissolve Parliament trigging a General Election? It is said that the Queen doesn't get involved really in politics and leaves that up to h...

Re: High Street chain collapse sweepstake

Pharmacies operate on a license type deal don't they, whereby the pharmacy has to prove to the NHS that the Pharmacy will in some way fill a gap in demand? Hence why newer ones tend to open late at night, so they can prove they provide a service not already available. It was certainly once the case...

Re: The Tesco & other non-Morrisons supermarket thread

I took a photo of one to show you just how basic it is. https://up.metropol247.co.uk/Whataday/Screenshot%202019-04-09%20at%208_27_07%20PM.png This doesn't really suggest the sophisticated advertising for which the slogan is known. It's not just unsophisticated, it's also off-brand given that the mu...

Re: High Street chain collapse sweepstake

I note with some wry amusement that the Q3 trading statement from M&S partly blames the weather for the falling sales ("an unseasonal October") for the eighth consecutive year. Edit: Actually, I'm mistaken. They didn't blame the weather in last year's Q3 statement, they waited until the full year re...
