Re: Public Transport in your particular part of the region

Talking of TVMs operated by either London Overground, TfL Rail or London Underground operated on National Rail metals. At my local station which is operated by London Overground, there are two different types of TVM, there are two totem TVMs which aren't linked to sell all TfL products, but can sell...

My stats included that I'm the number 1 buyer of Innocent Seriously Strawberry in my local store and I like to buy a lot of porridge and fruit bags.

LondonNewsBites seems to have an obsession with kids channels. Seems very Paul Akinbola like.
Makes me think that I should change my TVF username from London Lite considering that Akinbola already posts nonsense on DS as LondonBite1 and that LondonNewsBites account has similar characteristics.

Re: The Tesco & other non-Morrisons supermarket thread

Considering I have the Nectar app, Sainsbury's are still dishing out paper vouchers in addition to the weekly ones on the app. A complete waste of paper as they're still not tightly targeted to my shop compared to the app.

Re: High Street chain collapse sweepstake

Talking of Sainsbury's & Argos, I feel like I say this every year but could 2020 be the year Homebase finally bites the dust? I haven't seen any real signs of recovery...

Re: High Street chain collapse sweepstake

HMV continues to be volatile, closing more stores this month due to landlord issues. If Sunrise Records can't make the business viable, then I think it's finally game over for a business reliant on physical media sales. As for Argos, their issues at Christmas were down to axing their traditional 3 ...

Re: High Street chain collapse sweepstake

Primark seem to be getting bigger and bigger, branching out into themed cafes etc. I’m not sure how it fits alongside cheapo clothing but they’ve figured out that gullible millennials will Instagram anything that vaguely looks like something to do with Disney or Friends. The Central Perk cafe in th...
