Re: The Tesco & other non-Morrisons supermarket thread

Oooh, does that mean you'll be able to scan both your Clubcard and your Nectar card in the above example, in the same way *I think* you can scan both your Sparks card and Nectar card in M&S Simply Food BP forecourt stores? Have never actually done the latter (scanned the Nectar but not the Sparks), ...

Re: The Co-op Thread

Used a Co-op self service till today and was mightily impressed. Was one of the card only machines so didn’t have a scale but was by far the quickest self serve checkout I’ve used. Unlike some places (Boots jumps out as an example) there’s no need to press any buttons prior to scanning, no clunky an...

Re: The Barclays and other non-Lloyds/TSB Bank thread

Went into a NatWest branch for the first time today to make a transfer, as I could only pay a certain amount via the app as I hadn't paid the payee before, and because to do a higher amount online you need the card reader, which I didn't have as I was at work. A quite baffling experience ensued! Ne...

Re: The Barclays and other non-Lloyds/TSB Bank thread

Where was I? Ah yes. What's the procedure, I wonder, with removing 'hole in the wall'-style cashpoints from a building that was once a bank but no longer is? Saw a huge old ex-Barclays the other day (complete with the night-safe still intact on the wall) still with some very modern Barclays ATMs on ...

Re: Another High Street Rebrand

Noticed a couple of oddities when in Norwich city centre recently - firstly Primark seem to have taken to knocking down their previous premises and rebuilding it, meaning they've temporarily shifted into the old BHS (I wonder what they'd have done if BHS hadn't collapsed and there wasn't a massive u...

Re: TV Forum Watch News and Information Board

So what was said? Would you complain if the panel were made up of four Brexiteers? In any case, you have no idea how Tom Newton Dunn voted. I’ve been in conversation with the Executive Producer of the programme, and he’s taken great care to ensure that the discussion is editorially balanced, includ...

Re: Adverts that irritate and entertain

Quite like some of the bus stop adverts Lidl are doing at the moment, where they've made it look like they've stuck a poster advertising their (cheaper) product over a more expensive one elsewhere. Looks like there's two variants, one which is supposed to be for M&S mince pies, where you can see 'th...

Re: Brexit

As others have said, i think the future is really uncertain! We're certainly wasting time discussing May's draft deal at the moment because it'll never get voted through/accepted by a majority of people, but as cwathen says it's unlikely that anyone else could actually put something more agreeable o...

Is someone on the Children in Need thread doing a Tumble Tower homage? I swear 'Well done, [insert company name here]' whenever a corporate total is announced is his thing!

Re: The Tesco & other non-Morrisons supermarket thread

Popped into an Express store on the way home tonight that I imagine does a lot of trade during the week with workers on their lunch break. The store has a bank of five or so of the self-service checkouts that don't have a scale and just a shelf beneath them to save space/time, along with three more ...
