Re: Adverts that irritate and entertain

And would something like that require 5G speeds? I doubt it.

Re: Yet another Morrisons thread

I noticed on my trip to Morrisons today that there's now a QR code for "mobile shopping". I've not spotted this in previous weeks - is this something they're trialling / about to trial?

Re: Coronavirus - Strange times

Shouldn't that lockdown mean non-essential retailers have to close? Why, then, is Max Spielmann still open? They're a photography shop, they're non-essential. Do they offer essential services? Being part of the Timpson group, if they offer (for example) dry cleaning, that is classed as essential an...

Re: The Unofficial Sainsbury's Thread

I'm surprised at Sainsbury's closing all their deli, meat & fish counters - I can understand in small stores they may not be so well used but the the large out of town stores I would have thought they'd make a profit. Will Tesco follow? I'm less surprised, there was clearly no reason to have le...

They stopped in 2019 as a cost-cutting measure.

Re: The Tesco & other non-Morrisons supermarket thread

Have fireworks been on sale in supermarkets this year? I don't really live near any that normally stock them so can't tell if things are different, I completely forgot it was Bonfire Night until seeing it on Twitter. I've seen the counter at both Morrisons and Tesco. On a related note, there were q...

Re: TV Forum Watch News and Information Board

Anyone know why accounts are now being deleted at will without warning? Presumably sockpuppets of previously banned users. I asked the site admin and apparently I was marked as another user posting at the same time. This was not the case but I am unsure of what system is in use to determine multipl...

Re: TV Forum Watch News and Information Board

I'm happy to see the new anti-rota rules being enforced well, even if some members are actively moaning about it.

Re: Poundland's going chilly

Interesting. Poundland have been refitting all the stores around here over the last few months, and I think the first I saw with a full freezer section was Huddersfield back in November/December last year. It'll be interesting to see what they do with the legacy Fulton Foods which are typically in ...

Re: The Unofficial Sainsbury's Thread

It's a big difference between Sainsbury's and Morrisons - all the Morrisons counters are back open and have been for weeks.
