Wanderlust is also the star of this promotional aisle-end display in Co-op. The new variant is accompanied by Wild Strawberry and the on-trend Sour Watermelon.

There’s a new branch of Costa in Sainsbury’s Hove. And across the retailer’s estate, the rollout of Low Everyday Prices is in effect. The new value campaign kicked off earlier this month to highlight Sainsbury’s lowest-priced branded products on shelves. It will see more than 1,000 branded products promoted with a  red and yellow badge on shelves and in aisles. Sainsbury’s Low Everyday Prices will play up the retailer’s “consistent” approach to value across its range, replacing the long-running Price Lock initiative.
