Price paid for 29 products: £50.40This small Budgens store in Somerset only stocks a limited range of own-label products, so our shopper picked up as many branded alternatives as she could find. Mars Bars 6-pack and McCain hash browns were not sold.
The store was out of stock on Philadelphia and own-label quiche lorraine.
However, our shopper was impressed by how attractive this tiny store was. Flowers for sale outside made the store-front look pretty, and she found the inside to be just as appealing.
The store was clean and tidy, and all displays were well maintained.
She also described staff as helpful and freindly when assisting with her queries.
The store was very quiet and only one checkout was open,but our shopper was told that the second would be opened if it became busier.
She paid £50.40 for 29 items, and spotted one deal on Imperial Leather soap.
