Peacocks. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-50584658 How ethical is this, as Philip Day owned Bon Marchè via Spectre, and is the owner of Peacocks via EWM.

Re: The Unofficial Sainsbury's Thread

A new one on me today at Euro Garages Bangor: Sainsburys On The Go; a very small, WHSmith Travel style shop mainly selling sandwiches, crisps, vapes (a lot of vapes) and a surprisingly well stocked condiments and tinned goods section. Seems to be a trial at several Euro Garages that began in May. h...

Lakes & Dale's Co-operative, which are owned by Scotmid (previously Penrith Co-operative Socity be takeover and rebrand by Scotmid) appear to have adopted the International Coop branding too.

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

Can’t help but wonder, given Morrisons clearly don’t have an issue with their name being plastered all over it, why they don’t just stock Morrisons-branded stuff instead.

Re: Another High Street Rebrand

Did anyone notice Poundstretchers did buy out part of Poundworld and along with Bargin buys name. I don't think they bought it, they just started using it. Interestingly it does not appear to have been trademarked until last month, when the administrators registered it . Poundstretcher then submitt...

Re: The Tesco & other non-Morrisons supermarket thread

Popped into Jack's in immingham today and must say how disappointed I was, I looked like Aldi and Lidl 10 years ago, it looked bland and not at all warm like the Aldi and Lidl stores of the future.
