Sainsbury in Stirling gave Asda a run for its money with eight items on offer for a basket price of £37.08. A checkout error led to potatoes being charged at £1.69/kg instead of 99p but customer services rectified the error.
Waitrose in Bristol provided the third full basket at £40.64 and our shoppers praised the store for the quality of its fresh produce and for providing a "pleasant shopping experience".
Asda at Hollingbury in Brighton was described as "a mess", with stacking trolleys and packaging waste in many of the aisles. Staff seemed too busy to offer any real advice and just pointed in the general direction of our shopper's product inquiries.
Tesco's store at Penarth Marina slipped up on orange juice and Hardys wine, which were both out of stock. However, the chain recorded its first nominal basket under £37 since December 30 and had all the chilled items in stock.
The checkout operator at Somerfield in Chapel Allerton failed to acknowledge our shopper.
The plastic carrier bags provided by the Co-op split when the shopping was in transit from our shopper's car to the kitchen.
Stacking trolleys at Safeway in Congleton caused major problems in the fruit and vegetable area.
