A while ago, on this forum, there was some talk of Sainsbury's and Tesco fighting over a site on Borough High Street.

Some said it was opposite Belushi's and others said it was closer to London Bridge.

Does anyone know of any updates to this?

I recently email Sainy's advising them to consider Borough High Street as a location. More emails along the same lines might push it up the priority list...

Not convinced about Waitrose delivering to SE1 (well, they won't to me anyway). Tesco, Sainsbury and Asda do deliver to SE1 though and maybe others do too. Costs 5 to deliver so obviously not worth it for packet of crisps.
I like to buy the heavy, mass-produced stuff over the net every so often and visit local shops for the rest, and take a walk to Borough Market at the weekends for treats. Can only speak from experience but there's a couple of pretty decent shops in The Cut which are **always** open) and I bet there are plenty elsewhere.

Please support Iceland! Its turnover is not apparently enough to satisfy its bosses, but it is a very useful local facility. Otherwise you are reduced to using costcuters: OK but they don't appear to me to cut many costs.

the costcutters in great dover street often have out of date chilled foods....sometimes with a label obscuring part of it..

Anne - I think I must be Iceland's best customer. I agree - it is very usefyl and actually very good for fresh stuff too.

The problem is that they have started closing at 6pm. It is always packed at 5:55pm but the 'bosses' appear not to realise that they are probably shutting the shop for the most lucrative hour of the day, 6-7pm.

I heard Sainsbury's is opening in Borough High Street - can anyone confirm?

yes, I can confirm - it's going in opposite Belushi's where the big hole in the ground is. Spoke to the builder!
