Re: Coronavirus - Strange times

My local Tesco Express has a one way system that nobody is adhering to. It's also pot luck if you have to queue or not, when I went on Sunday afternoon, I had to queue, yet today there wasn't one. The one adult rule in Sainsbury's appears to be helping in making the time stood in a queue shorter, ev...

Re: Coronavirus - Strange times

Speaking of Sainsbury's, I've found them to be far the worst locally when it comes to getting stock back to (somewhat) normal levels - what's everyone else's experiences like? I've found Sainsbury's are still low on tinned food and spreads locally. However they're fine for toilet rolls now. The str...

Re: Coronavirus - Strange times

The one adult policy goes national in Sainsbury's from today (Friday) and limits will start to be removed from some items from Sunday.

UHT milk, pasta and tinned tomatoes will continue to be rationed.

Gibraltar is lovely although word of warning, make sure if you have any Gibraltar banknotes, spend them in Gibraltar! I had one and couldn't spend it in the UK and no UK bank would change it!
I sometimes get Gibraltar coins over here that has sneaked into circulation.

Whatever you may think of Mike Ashley, those stores would be better in his hands than the current Debenhams management.

Re: Coronavirus - Strange times

Not sure if this is national Sainsbury's policy, but the nearest Sainsbury's standard supermarket to me has introduced a one adult policy and are giving hand sanitiser to every customer on their hands.

Re: The Tesco & other non-Morrisons supermarket thread

Sainsbury's recently launched the replacement brands for Basics. House 247 is the new budget brand for household products. This follows Stamford St for some food products.

Re: Coronavirus - Strange times

Sainsbury's introduced all day queuing from Thursday, which is making for a much more pleasurable experience in-store, which as mentioned, the majority of panic buying has ceased with plenty of food in-store, although toilet rolls and canned goods are still low in stock. Mine seems to be turning th...
