Re: Adverts that irritate and entertain

Is it just me wondering why watching a virtual Rita Ora trod around some London landmarks through an iPhone is something anyone would want to do? You have to wonder if they're trying to think of cool new things you could do with 5G given there aren't really any compelling reasons at the moment. http...

Re: The Tesco & other non-Morrisons supermarket thread

Has anyone else got the new style self scan interface on the scan as you shop checkouts? Instant transfer from the guns, readable receipts will *full product names*, and a much simpler set of buttons on the screen. Yes - there's a rating screen at the end so I assume they're trialling it on scan as...

Re: Another High Street Rebrand

Starling Bank have updated their logo, with a slightly revised icon and new font. It doesn't seem to have made its way through to all elements yet - the app has the new icon but it's not been updated anywhere within the app or on the card design.

Re: High Street chain collapse sweepstake

The Argos in Sheffield city centre remains closed, however I’ve seen that you can do a click and collect at a nearby Sainsburys Local. Is that a recent thing? There is a concession in the one on The Moor now - perhaps that's why Angel Street is still closed. I think the ability to collect from Sain...

Re: Another High Street Rebrand

The former B Works unit. It looks like B customers are the first to transition to Virgin Money, which is really just a re-branded version of B anyway and seems to be using the existing Yorkshire/Clydesdale Bank infrastructure in favour of the Virgin one, presumably because the old Virgin current acc...

Re: Another High Street Rebrand

They seem to be slowly rolling it out rather than a blanket swapout. I'm hoping it means the introduction of self service checkouts in time - they trialled them in Sheffield around 2008 before the rebrand when they still had IBM registers, but they ripped them out when the Fujitsu ones were introduc...

Re: Another High Street Rebrand

A bit of an odd one, but Frankie and Benny's have gone back to the old logo that they changed in January 2018 - and seem to have toned down some the new, more playful branding they introduced at the time. It was a bit jarring at the time and didn't really fit with the old New York diner theme most o...

Re: The Unofficial Sainsbury's Thread

They've just done something similar at a site in Chesterfield - it used to be a Little Chef/Burger King, more recently just a Burger King (using the old, unrefurbished Little Chef dining area for many years) and has now been totally refitted at a Sainsburys, Vape Store and Burger King with a dining ...

Re: Another High Street Rebrand

In fairness that second logo might have stuck around a bit longer if Santander hadn't bought them and brought them under their own corporate brand. I also disagree about people not wanting their bank to be "trendy" - see Starling/Monzo/Revolut/N26, and banks like Smile/Cahoot/First Direct ...

Re: Another High Street Rebrand

Most of Boots in Meadowhall is closed off for refurbishment - the signs explaining the refurb are all in the new style.

I wonder if it will be one of the first examples of their new store design? I'll update once I see it completed.

Re: Another High Street Rebrand

Seemingly not inside going by this photo.

I was hoping they might have had a new look inside, Boots stores are incredibly bland. Maybe we'll see something new in the coming months.
