what's the waste like on those giant fuck off cakes they always have on the patisserie counter?

It's a bit like the fancy store in Pimlico, which has since reverted to a standard format.

Looks like the concept Morrisons store from a few years ago near where I used to live. I’m sure all supermarkets have come up with this sort of design over the past ten years.

It does look dated already. I seem to remember Tesco trying something similar around 10 years ago.

Reminds me of the new look M&S food halls that they started rolling out last year and that seem to have ground to a halt due to COVID.

Not sure, that used to be managed as part of the bakery department rather than counters. I imagine high but made up for by ridiculous markup given the price of similar huge cakes at Costco.

Still showing as a temporary closure of the counters in my local Sainsbury's! I wonder what will go in their place, this store (Hedge End) was only refurbished a year ago!

Identical at Dundee, who cut their fresh cheese offering in half removing my favourite cheese :(

Really missing Sainsbury's Mull of Kintyre cheddar here, but that's down to the creamery going bust. Going to treat myself to some Wookey Hole from Waitrose for Christmas, and a baked Camembert or two. Hmm.

It appears Sainsbury's have integrated Argos's stock checker technology as they now offer a stock checker for groceries on the JS website.

I very much doubt that relies on any Argos technology at all.
