Just north of Blackfriars Bridge, Sainsbury's Local is opening in the old NatWest in New Bridge Street, opposite Tesco Express (which replaced the post office).

Hi all,

After reading comments I nervously reply as a Tesco store manger (Tooley street) that if there is anything we can do, or any feedback you'd like me to try and improve on if happily take the challenge!

I admire you Mark, not a store I use- but sure you will get feedback from these lovely se1 -ers

Hi Mark,

Tesco Tooley street is a really good 'showpiece' store with a good range - I wish all the local SE1 Tescos were like your store - but unfortunately, they are not.

I've noticed your store pictured in quite a few TV and press reports about how Tesco's are improving their offer.

My idea is - could you not devise a mini-version of your store to roll out elsewhere in SE1?

Nicer finishes, graphics, lighting - more Finest products? Fresh 'Emporium' bread and pastries etc.? Local Bermondsey beer from the Kernel brewery?

Surely that's within the realms of the possible?

We're an independent supermarket and try to offer everything you need for your everyday and treat shopping. I like to think we could help you and that we offer personal service. We certainly have cinnamon and icing sugar and lots of other baking ingredients. We're Greensmiths on Lower Marsh.

Thanks Greensmith, I shall remember that for next time, I hadn't thought to try you.

Again suggest you make your first stop in Lower Marsh for out-of-the-ordinary groceries Supreme Stores (not Springfields as I mistakenly said in an earlier post). Yellow frontage next door to Betfreds betting shop.

Ah yes, had wondered where you meant, thanks for the clarification.

I have reduced shopping at supermarkets. That Sainsburys on Borough HS has an Audio system in place is too far for me. So you are now being heard as well as being watched.
