Re: Yet another Morrisons thread

Just to add to the Morrisons branding inconsistency - they seem to be missing a trick not rebranding their delivery vans, they're essentially mobile billboards and so they're another great way of spreading an updated brand. And yet they're exactly the same as in 2013 when they launched their deliver...

Re: The Tesco & Other non-Morrisons Supermarket Thread

Also Pay at Pump has no obvious contactless hardware. My new Clubcard arrived today and it mentioned in the leaflet that tapping and scanning at some Pay at Pumps won't be available until later in 2017, so the machines must be getting a hardware upgrade. No idea if that'll bring Contactless technol...

Re: High Street chain collapse sweepstake

Store Twenty One - a store usually found on horrible high streets selling cheap rubbish - seems to have finally given up the ghost after going insolvent last month. Their website is still online but stores failed to open over the weekend. The store near here had no signs of impending closure, just a...

Re: Pride

I think it's because it's become more fashionable to show your support for it on Twitter, Facebook etc. for whatever reason - businesses are just jumping on the bandwagon to improve their brand image with that demographic. Nonetheless, I think there are worse things to show support for and it's nice...

Re: Another High Street Rebrand

I'm surprised they changed back so quickly since they'd started rolling out the sunburst logo to store signage, but the sunburst really was pointless - it added absolutely no appeal to the brand. I'd agree ASDA is in a mess - I think the brand and the stores themselves comes across little downmarket...

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

Has anyone made much use of the table service? I've only used it when paralytic in order to reduce the chances of me falling over and smacking my teeth on the counter. I'm surprised it doesn't slow down the counter service. They have it in the Uxbridge restaurant, but only in one area downstairs. T...

Re: Yet another Morrisons thread

I can't believe it's now 21 months since the new tree logo. We're now at that annoying but interesting mid-point in own brand logo replacement cycles where momentum always seems to fizzle away. Expunging the whole 'Signature' range and replacing it with 'The Best' + tree logo was clearly treated as...

Re: Yet another Morrisons thread

Morrisons seem to be expanding their Morrisons Daily convenience store format at petrol stations, though I'm not sure if it's run as a franchise or directly by Morrisons themselves. One's popped up here in Sheffield at a Texaco - it was actually a Co-op up until around September 2016 (new build as a...

Re: The Unofficial Sainsbury's Thread

I believe the only Argoses with no catalogues are the Argos Digital stores where they have tablets instead of touchscreens. The Digital store format has been rolled out to all the stores here in Sheffield (although I've noticed it doesn't seem to have rolled out anywhere else) - the tablets are far...
