Slightly less Piat D'Or in there last night than usual - could the tide be turning?

it gets worse...this evening the fridges were all not working...they were selling chilled drinks, sandwiches etc at room temp...think a call to southwark trading standards is in order

Bought a strawberry trifle on my way home. I am having a bad tummy at the moment. I shouldn't have bought it but I was so hungry. Well, it's been a busy day at work and I haven't eaten all day.

I was in another branch of Sainsbury's Local yesterday (not in SE1) and was looking for a toothbrush. There didn't appear to be any. When I asked the manager, who happened to be pacing the floor at the time, he informed me, "We no longer sell toothbrushes in this branch." Yet, weirdly, they sell Steradent denture tablets....

I posted a comment just after Zappomatic sayning I thought it was going to end up more of a newsagent than supermarket but my post seems to have disappeared. Odd.

It would be like a newsagent if you could get anywhere near the magazines - they're blocked in by a rack of umbrellas.

They seem to have stopped selling organic skimmed milk now.

However, the worst thing is they are now handing out tiny carrier bags meaning you need to use more than usual to carry your shopping. I can see the reasoning in that a lot of people only go in for a couple of items but surely they should stock both sizes. The irony is that Sainsbury's are running a national campaign on Friday to reduce the number of carrier bags used. Maybe their staff at BHS should be advised - I bought an Evening Standard earlier in the week which was promptly put into a bag!

they told me they had been delivered the wrong size (again)

I know it has it many faults but for myself who just buys top ups to my main weekly shop like bread, milk and bits and pieces i may have forgotten it is very useful. Before it opened i was buying milk from local shops with hardly any time left date wise and hard bread at its sell by date so i for one think it is a great asset to the area.

I agree it is better than it not being there at all but I also think it's right to complain about it not fulfilling it's potential.
Having said that Sainsburys completely ignored my email to head office.

Tescos have also (unless they've recently corrected it got rid of all non-quorn frozen veggie stuff; linda Mcartney pies, sausage rolls etc.
(Can someone tell me if that's the correct use of a semi-colon? I dream of one day using semi-colons. sigh)

Hmmm, I think a colon may have been more appropriate; you are listing the items that make up your category (non frozen veggie stuff).

I think my colon would be complaining if I fed it Linda McCartney pies. And my semi-colon.

...if you press it, they will come.
