Only two full baskets made it into The Grocer 33 this week with Safeway at Llanishen, Cardiff, checking in the cheapest. Its bill of £40.29 undercut Sainsbury at Plymouth by 25p. Both Somerfield stores suffered most from out of stocks. Late deliveries of perishables and fresh produce caused hiccups at the Wallsend store, while frozen food was the culprit at St Neots which had no McCain Home Fries and Birds Eye fish fingers. The latter also charged the dearer mushroom price for tomatoes, spotted by our eagle eyed shopper. Although the Nottingham Co-op had only one missing line, our shopper reported it was a case of grabbing one of just a handful left on shelf because of low stocks. Safeway had the best buys on the fresh produce front with British Cox apples at 29p/454g and potatoes at 12p/454g. Our Welsh shopper also reported price cuts for 185g John West tuna from 65p to 29p and four packs of own label baked beans from 89p to 39p. Specials included the Co-op's £1.40 off Stella Artois and Sainsbury's buy one get second half price offer on unsmoked bacon. Service with a snarl cost some stores points on the quality score front. {{GROCER 33 }}
