Refrigerator causes trouble at Asda and Safeway clutter proves irritating Out of stocks hit our weekly shop resulting in only two stores with full baskets. Tesco, Nottingham, checked in the cheapest at £38.60 ­ 52p less than rival Sainsbury at Cardiff. A refrigeration breakdown meant not just Müller Fruit Corners but all yogurts were off at Asda, Bishopbriggs, while pasta sauce was missing from the NE Co-op and spaghetti from Tesco in Cambridgeshire. Despite some exceptional specials from Safeway at Plymstock and Anchorage Park ­ 50p off 100g Nescafé coffee, crisps and frozen chicken ­ out of stocks kept them out of the frame too. Service and staffing came under the spotlight this week. Our south west shopper gave low scores because aisles were cluttered with display items and trolley pallets. This was blamed on Safeway's new pharmacy being installed and a lack of storage space. Longer waits at the checkout were noted at Tesco, Cambs, and Sainsbury, Cardiff. This week's best buys included Somerfield's £1 off 1.7kg frozen chicken, Tesco's 25% extra free on Home Fries oven chips, and the Co-op's 25% extra free on Cadbury's Fruit & Nut. On the downside, onions went up by 7p-9p in all stores. {{GROCER 33 }}
