Re: Brexit

Remainers did an awful in the job in the first place trying to convince people the EU is great and we should stay. And Leavers did an even worse job scaremongering people into thinking a literal queue of Muslims were poised to enter the UK when Turkey was apparently on the cusp of joining the EU (i...

Re: The Tesco & other non-Morrisons supermarket thread

Aldi have launched their own 'local' brand although rather than a move into convienience stores this is merely a trial at rebranding their smaller city stores that have less of their range. This could be the start of Aldi finally opening up across London, they've been seriously lagging behind Lidl ...

Re: The Unofficial Sainsbury's Thread

^ Balham also has two sets: a large self service area for the side facing the high street and manned checkouts and a handful more self serve on the car park end.

Re: High Street chain collapse sweepstake

Even reading that article I still don’t get how there can be anything more than a few years left in the business. Surely vinyl can’t keep a large chain going? Once that fad’s gone what have they got left? Game has at least managed to make some of their stores more of a destination with their new Bel...

Re: High Street chain collapse sweepstake

Are Eat doing badly? Two branches in the Tottenham Court Road area and one in Covent Garden that I know of have closed down relatively recently, surely two of the busiest areas for the lunchtime trade in the UK. The quality of their baguettes have gone through the floor over the last few years.

Re: The Very Official McDonalds (and other fast food outlets) Thread

The Strand McDonalds in London which was infamous for not having the touch screens now has them. They stripped out a load of tables to install those. There must be few and far between where it's all counter POS only now? Croydon North End still has it as the site is being demolished as part of the ...

Re: The Unofficial Sainsbury's Thread

I went back to what used to be my regular Sainsburys in Balham last week for the first time in ages and found they'd added a full service Ben and Jerry's counter right next to the entrance (no one was using it) and had replaced their pizza counter with a Zizzi's pizza takeaway counter, complete with...
