This thread was complete gibberish to me. Who is bored enough to translate into American? Feel free to leave out the "duh"'s, "ummms", "ya know?"'s, and the "like"'s.

Asda, IMO, is the best supermarket now I reckon (despite the Walmart takeover). They used to be pretty crap but they have a lot of good stuff now and quite cheap too...

Oh fucking hell, another thread degenerated into a supermarket discussion. Well I don't suppose it was ever destined to be anything else though :D

I love it when we start talking about supermarkets. I swear it's my destiny to grow old working in one, or maybe I'll have a heart attack and fall in the freezers. That'd be good.

I just will not buy meat there. I've seen where it comes from.

There's a good reason why it's cheap - the quality is terrible.

Although if you just want cheapest prices, you end up going to all the supermarkets.

I wasn't commenting on how good they are, they take so much money it's scary. Apparently I found out the other day that my Dad is boycotting them on principle.

I think everyone should try and buy local produce from local shops if possible, however the supermarkets have destroyed most grocers and butchers, not to mention third world farmers.

Still...not sure I can live without Waitrose.


On the topic of Walmart- not only do they sell bullets in store but they also discriminate against women so I hear.

I have 2.

Hmm. I've got a Sainsburys, an Asda and a Co-op within a 15 minute walk...

... it's a nice idea, but the local shops have already vanished where I am.

yes I recognise tht they have in most places. Its an ideal.

i am lucky I have a butchers (remember them?) around the corner

Cruddy

More of a warning really - if you don't use your local shops then they die very quickly.

I just had a butcher's around the corner. There was nothing there.

You know, there aren't many Tesco's around here surprisingly...the nearest ones are either Lewisham or Foots Cray (other side of Sidcup)...

Hmmmm....let's see...Safeway and Albertson's are the two main grocery only places here. Fred Meyer is grocery/household, Winco is an employee owned "everything is cheaper" place with less shiny stuff and customer service. Costco sells bulk goods and charges an annual membership fee. Haggens is for rich people and has good beer, wine, cheese, olive bars, etc. Trader Joe's, Wild Oats and Nature's are hippie, organic, whole foods and health focused places.
That's about it for here...all of these are within aa 10 minute drive.

I go to Winco cause it's cheap and the other two mainstreams cause they're close. Thank god I don't work at a SuperTarget, which is also grocery--I'd never leave the place.

I've still never been in a Waitrose though, I will have to go and have a look round just out of pure curiosity...there is one pretty close by in Bromley...perhaps sometime next week...

Safeway is Morrisons now though.
