sainsbury's Bridgwater, Somerset
0 Although this store was clean and well-organised, most of the aisles were cluttered with packing trolleys. A full basket was provided but shoppers had to wait for more till-trained staff to help tackle the long queues. There was no offer of help to pack bags, no hello or goodbye and there was a discrepancy on the receipt.
We visited on 22 June at 9.35am. Our shop lasted one hour and 35 minutes. Time spent at the checkout was seven minutes.
somerfield Claygate, Surrey
2 This small Somerfield store might have witnessed a Grocer 33 speed record as it did not stock 4-packs of baking potatoes or the Walkers Crisps Variety pack and was out of stock of long grain rice and Dairylea. However, the store was clean and tidy and the staff were flawless in their enthusiastic and professional attitude.
We visited on 22 June at 10.30am. Our shop lasted 25 minutes. Time spent at the checkout was two minutes.
tesco Stowmarket, Suffolk
2 Our Tesco shopper found herself battling through cardboard boxes and shelf-stackers at this Stowmarket branch. The Birds Eye garden peas and red seedless grapes were out of stock and the vegetable display was looking depleted. However, the checkout assistant was friendly and there was a sufficient number of checkouts operating.
