Re: The Unofficial Sainsbury's Thread

EDIT - it's for Nectar, they're going to push using an app rather than a physical card, and the existing scanners wont scan phone displays. It's just a barcode reader though, nothing sinister. Thanks for that. I know the M&S self scans will now read the in-app Sparks card barcode, so presume the se...

Re: Another High Street Rebrand

Not a rebrand, but I noticed my local Homebase has had it's frontage spruced up with a new fascia/banner type thing the length of the store. Presumably it's trying to make the place look more exciting. https://up.metropol247.co.uk/scottishtv/homebase_banner.jpg UPDATE: the multicoloured fascia has ...

Re: The Unofficial Sainsbury's Thread

I mostly use the self-checkouts, but I noticed Sainsbury's staffed tills now have little barcode/image scanners attached to the Chip and PIN device. Couldn't really see anything about this online, other than in the tweet below (not my content). Presumably something to do with payment is in the works...

Re: The Unofficial Sainsbury's Thread

Sainsbury’s saddles up with Deliveroo for takeaway pizza trial . I understand the point of trying to utilise hot food counters more, but this wouldn't appeal to me.

Re: Another High Street Rebrand

I’m waiting for someone in the latest death thread to blame Brexit for Jeremy Kyle’s axing.

Re: TV Forum Watch News and Information Board

I guess he might be trying to make a joke about cuts to the number of frontline police officers, or something. I'm probably giving him too much credit though.
