The place is shambolic. The thing that winds me up the most is the huge truck parked on the pavement every morning at about 8.30 with around 6 cages full of crap blocking the way while workers, who could care less about public safety, blindly wheel 7 foot tall wire bins full of stuff in the opposite direction. I will take a photo once The Cut reopens. Most problems at Teso stores are down to a clueless and incompetent manager not getting a grip on the situation. Come on fella - sort yourself and the store out (I complained to you last week and it was your helpful staff - not you - who sorted it out)

have to aggree with the above comments , place always seems a mess. Hardly any staff , the self service machines seem broken half the time and the part where the bag goes is so small you can only Balance a few items on there !!

Ninja999, I've asked that they move the metal frame on the counter that hold the plastic bags so that customers can push the wire basket further down the counter so there's space at the front to rest our own bag. We are all encouraged to bring our own bags and yet they don't make a space for them. It's the worst supermarket I have been in for a very long time.

just one more reason, why it might be a good idea to boycott Tesco. it's not as if there aren't alternatives within easy walking distance - a bit of a longer walk might mean that one could get rid of ones gym membership and save money too!

good idea JOnR - to be honest I try to avoid the 'chain' supermarkets for lots of reasons but I have the odd moment of weakness/laziness

Perhaps we could draw up a list of decent places to shop in the area?

I will start with M and S Bankside. Staff are welcoming, bargains are to be had half an hour before closing time, and the store is clean.Just avoid the lunchtime rush hour.

Iceland on Lower Marsh is good value, staff are friendly, and the place is clean too.

We've got this BS to look forward to when the Tesco opens on Queen Elizabeth Street/Curlew Street. Yippee.

I quite like the Sainsbury's and Tesco's opposite each other on Great Suffolk Street. Not because they are particularly nice shops (Tesco stil very scruffy despite refurb) , but because I can check out both for the same product and buy from the cheapest. For some items I know which ones are always cheaper where, so I end up doing a shop in both. Not sure that's how they intended it, but it works for me.

I'll also vote for Iceland. And Sainsbury's in Blackfriars Road is very nice, tidy and not at all busy in the evenings. Also very nice and friendly staff - one actually rushed to me from stacking shelves to see if I wanted to be served on the tills! Also nice bargains often.

Hi Nick - here are a couple of pics I took of the Tesco lorry, parked on the pavement, with the cages being wheeled through hapless pedestrians trying to avoid the nuisance. When there are lots of pedestrians, prams, children, this is a real bottleneck. I really hope this does not happen in Queen Elizabeth Street.
