New trolleys at Asda in Cardiff were easy to push “until they were full!” Our shopper noted that Goodfella’s frozen pizza had been reduced by 9p from the chain’s usual price point of £1.77 - and thought it odd to have the freezer section in the middle of the store.
Northern rival Morrisons charged £39.38 for its complete list and took the Storewatch title for providing the best all-round shopping experience. In particular, our shopper said that the restaurant and newsagency area “worked very well”.
At £42.51 Safeway’s full basket in Glasgow was the chain’s cheapest this term and only its second full basket since the new G33 list came into effect. The Anniesland store was well merchandised and praised for its fresh produce displays.
At Wollaton, the Co-op’s full list cost £46.05, which included a new10-rasher pack of bacon to the CRTG-supplied store.
Scanning queries by the customer in front held up our shopper for eight minutes at Sainsbury’s Fallowfield store. Premium sausages were on bogof and Goodfella’s Loaded Cheese was only sold in a 849g twin-pack, flagged up as ‘only £1.59 per pizza’. Own label frozen chips were ‘heavily’ promoted at Tesco in Belfast. Somerfield had several black “spills” on the floor and Persil scanned at £3.25 instead of £2.99.
