Re: The Tesco & other non-Morrisons supermarket thread

2. Location of baskets. Why (oh why oh why...) do they only place baskets right at the front door? Surely the very business model of these 'convenience stores' is to lure in customers that want to quickly grab bread and milk and then get them to buy more items. Should this happen, that customer has...

both nixdorf models. Newer Morrisons have NCR FastLane 6 which are excellent.
What are both Nixdorf models?
sorry thought I'd quoted that.

The B&Q ones and the original Morrisons

Greggs have stopped putting the bit of plastic on top of a single doughnut to please Greta Thunberg. The problem is now the icing sticks to the paper bag and rips off :(

Re: The Unofficial Sainsbury's Thread

I tend just not to use them because they're totally unnecessary. I did once manage to confuse a member of staff who was doing a 'service check' on me at Tesco because they believed I should be printing off a label for every red onion I get if I'm not going to put them in a bag. Divvy. I've sort of ...

Re: The Unofficial Sainsbury's Thread

Fruit and Veg plastic bags have been axed for reusable bags that cost 30p. I tend just not to use them because they're totally unnecessary. I did once manage to confuse a member of staff who was doing a 'service check' on me at Tesco because they believed I should be printing off a label for every ...

Re: Another High Street Rebrand

Don't really know where to put this but it doesn't need a new thread. Went to B&Q in Aintree last week, and they've removed the self-service checkouts. Looking on Twitter, it appears they've done this in other locations too. Apparently it's because of too many people stealing. It's not only that, i...

Re: The Unofficial Sainsbury's Thread

There's been quite a rapid scaling down of Sainsbury's operations in Hull recently. A couple of months back they announced the closure of 2 Locals, and today another 3 are being lined up for closure. Ever since they acquired Jackson's, Hull's always had a disproportionate number of Locals to its po...

Re: Yet another Morrisons thread

First of all, this talk of the Gibraltar Morrisons without photos is unacceptable. Get snapping. Especially with wide photos I can use for the header image. Second - what exactly is the point of Iceland's "Food Warehouse"? It appears to be a branch of iceland except with higher prices and - oddly - ...
