VOTE: your favourite UK supermarket?
We recently shared news that Sainsburys has drawn in new budget consumers for grocery shopping, in view of their bargains. Some of your comments include:
Lam: "Its getting cheaper for sure. I was in this morning and they have 100’s of thiings for just £1.00 like Head&Shoulders shamoos [shampoos] and conditioners - Aquafresh Toothbrushes - Aquafresh Mouthwash - all Loyd Grossman pasta sauces - Cadbury Bournville Rum&Rasin 180g chocolate - Premier deli chorizo - to name just a few things I got for my Nan.Think Asda advetising 7000 items for £1 has made all the other stores start dropping theirs to a quid."
Shaune: "The supermarkets are probably the only companies who’ll survive the credit crunch. Other than on-line merchants that is."
Anita: "Waitrose and Sainsburys are the only places I shop, ASDA’s not that bad, Morissons have terrible food and Tesco, well frankly I’ve yet to encounter one that doesn’t scare the bejesus out of me, horrible shop, horrible staff and vile punters."
veedubjai: "Supermarkets will ALWAYS survive in the long term because everyone has to eat whether its Boom or Bust."
But in the recession, it's not competition. It's WAR. And who's winning the supermarket race right now, and why? Put in your vote and share your thoughts on the best/worst supermarket in the comments below.
