Re: Yet another Morrisons thread

A Morrisons near me has been kitted out with all new self and staffed checkouts. The staffed checkouts come complete with a 1-2-3 "scan, pay, pack" instructional message at the start of the conveyor belt. *I think* the idea is the bottom bay area is divided into two, so one person can pack their sho...

Re: Metro/TFM

Indeed, back on air Sundays only with Little Plum as the opening theme, sounding great. Freudian slip at the start referring to "Great North Radio", which (a quick Google later shows) was one of the many former names of the AM station in the North East prior to Magic/GHR. As far as Metro is concerne...

Re: Metro/TFM

He's also just let slip that "the Metro name may not be around much longer". Hardly surprising but there we are. Sigh. Hello Hits North East or something equally bland. I'm presuming this is Alan's choice to leave? Don't think even Bauer would be brave enough to push him out the door. It all happen...

Re: Metro/TFM

Historic evening - the last edition of Alan Robson's Nightowls is currently going out and it really does feel like a final goodbye to the history and soul of Metro and local radio broadcasting in the North East in general. He's also just let slip that "the Metro name may not be around much longer". ...

Yikes - that logo is a shocker, far too much going on.

Re: Another High Street Rebrand

For those hitherto unfamiliar with the layout of the MetroCentre, Gateshead, one of its defining features is its colour-coded mall system (Red, Green, Blue, Yellow), as featured in the centre's original logo. For reasons of corporate design insistency, the interior navigational signage, previously d...

Re: ***THE OFFICIAL ALL NEW SAFEWAY THREAD***

Thought you would appreciate this wonderful Safeway hat proudly adorned by a gentleman on Look North this evening:

Edit: Incidentally, I note *they have* referenced the old wave under the logo in some of the new packaging.

TUI following the old "if you have to explain it, it's probably not that good" UI rule.

Re: The Tesco & Other non-Morrisons Supermarket Thread

A local Tesco Extra has undergone a major refit over the summer, with new wood panelled totem, extensive new external and internal photographic signage, wood panelled deli/butcher, etc. counters... all using the old font, mostly in uppercase just to make it even more glaring. Not a trace of the new ...

Re: TV Forum Watch News and Information Board

That's not what I said. Did you actually read what I said or just skimmed over it? Ahem... The insufferable idiots are the ones on here complaining about other people's attitudes. If you can't take a little challenge to your pre-conceived notions, then in my view, you aren't worth my time. Record n...

Re: TV Forum Watch News and Information Board

Oh you'd love that. A safe space for all your special snowflakes to whine and complain about things they don't like. Try getting along with people you don't see eye to eye with. It's called life. Live it. You have just labelled people who hold an opinion (and/or fact based on industry experience) d...
