Re: The Unofficial Sainsbury's Thread

My local store had the same daft arrangement of a sign with plastic bags above. About a week later though they had been replaced with the new style bags.

Re: The Unofficial Sainsbury's Thread

The SmartShop scanners that I have seen on a recent installation are released simply by pressing a Release Handset image on the scanner and then scanning the Nectar card from the handset.

The Gibraltar refit continues. They seem to have some new freezers and are working on the new pizza counter. The checkout, cafe and bar are untouched.
I noticed today a sign saying works will be completed by December.

Re: The Unofficial Sainsbury's Thread

So these replicate the functionality of the QuickPay machines that existed in the larger stores - many of which they've now closed. It did surprise me that there wasn't any self pay option as it seemed to be a backwards step.

Re: The Unofficial Sainsbury's Thread

Has anyone seen an Argos in a Sainsbury’s with Quick Pay machines? Our local store before it moved from the High Street to Sainsbury’s had Quick Pay machines but now it’s in Sainsbury’s these no longer exist.

Also do these stores have their own cash office facilities or are they using Sainsbury’s?

Re: The Tesco & Other non-Morrisons Supermarket Thread

What is the position if a retailer fails to charge for a bag? In the past week or so I've been given four bags without charge.

I wonder if this targets the Shell sites that were sold off earlier this year. I believe they will continue selling Shell fuel for a few years.

Re: Postal Service

Thanks for those replies. It seems madness the distance post travels when it is staying within a town. Interesting to hear that the USO is being breached but I wonder if there is any sanction against Royal Mail for it.

Postal Service

I have a strange question and hoping the knowledge of the forum will be able to answer it. In my part of the world Royal Mail recently closed, I believe, the sorting office in Cambridge. The work was split between Peterborough and Chelmsford depending on the postcode. I was wondering if you post a l...

Re: Adverts that irritate and entertain

Of course it's the bankers fault - no one should ever have to take responsibility for their own actions.
