Re: Public Transport in your particular part of the region

That's the idea of using generic TOC names to prevent having to go through a massive rebrand every time the franchise changes out the window then?!

Re: The Unofficial Sainsbury's Thread

Apologies if I've missed it being mentioned already but Sainsbury's have been pushing Nectar (using the updated branding) heavily in stores this week, and with a new app too. Interestingly, the app provides a barcode to scan your card in-store (much like Tesco has done with Clubcard for AGES), and t...

Re: The Unofficial Sainsbury's Thread

Is it just me or are pretty much all Sainsbury's Local stores looking tired and a bit unloved these days? Unlike Tesco I've not really seen many attempts to refit stores beyond the kit they got when they opened, and as a result there's a right old mix of shopfronts around - a ex-Central store near m...

Looks quite nice but I do wonder if it suffers from the same issue that the o...

Re: TV Forum Watch News and Information Board

Crikey, not every day a long-time member has the banhammer wielded on them! I sort of don't believe it's permanent - I suppose there was that weird spat where he was going round berating other members without good reason but I didn't think that would lead to his demise!

Re: TV Forum Watch News and Information Board

Very quickly deleted by the mods but quite a revealing slip of the mask from the user 'Newsroom' tonight, after Cando joked that Newsroom might fancy the BBC's Ben Thompson... I believe Newsroom called Cando a moron in reply and questioned why ON EARTH Cando would suggest he was gay! Just a little i...

Re: The Unofficial Sainsbury's Thread

Sainsbury's stores in general seem to be much more tired in general IMO. Locals seem to get their original fit-out and then are left as-is for a very long time - have seen plenty of old fascias knocking about (although this is true too, albeit to a lesser extent I think, for Tesco) and inside stores...

Re: The Tesco & other non-Morrisons supermarket thread

I still find the voice on the Tesco self service checkouts really bizarre - he has the nasally voice of someone from a cheesy regional radio advert. Even weirder are the things he says like "Find your item, or have a browse" - because of course you're going to have a browse of what you fancy after ...

Re: The Tesco & other non-Morrisons supermarket thread

Clearly new ideas are hard to come by in retail, as I note M&S have resurrected ‘this isn’t just food...’ on some of their recent advertising! Went to grab lunch from a Simply Food today and also discovered that they’d got the Britain’s Got Talent judges to pre-record the voiceover for the tills - h...

Re: The Tesco & other non-Morrisons supermarket thread

Oooh, does that mean you'll be able to scan both your Clubcard and your Nectar card in the above example, in the same way *I think* you can scan both your Sparks card and Nectar card in M&S Simply Food BP forecourt stores? Have never actually done the latter (scanned the Nectar but not the Sparks), ...
