The greengrocer I go to is also opposite Tesco but does quite well because it sells exotic veg and has a greater variety of Potatoes, all loose so you dont have to pay for what you don"t need. I hope it doesn"t close down.

Thanks Chrissie, thanks.

The City Centres are already suffering because of out of town Supermarkets and Discount out of town Shopping Malls. It"s sad to see
and where will it all end. My City has had a huge facelift and even John Lewis opened up here and already the most bizarre shops have closed down.

The outlook for the nexr few years is not looking good and the unemployment figure continues to rise.

THEY SELL GAMES ETC I BELIEVE.

TESCO ARE TRYING TO OPEN ANOTHER STORE IN MY TOWN,ONLY IT IS SAID THAT ANOTHER TESCO IN A OUT OF TOWN CENTRE WOULD SUFFER 20% DROP IN CUSTOM AND MIGHT EVEN CAUSE PROBLEMS WITH THE OUT OF TOWN CENTRE AND CAUSE THE NEARBY ASDA AND SAINSBURY TO SUFFER A DROP IN CUSTOM PLUS CAUSE THE CLOSDURE OF THE SMALL SHOPS.
TRAFFIC PROBLEMS ARE ALSO ANOTHER CONCERN.

GAME HAS HAD A 14.7% SLUMP IN PROFITS.
THE GAMES INDUSTRY HAS DECLINED BY THE SAM % OVER ABOUT 4 YEARS,MEANING GAME RETAILERS MUST COMPETE FOR FEWER AND FEWER CUSTOMERS.

ONE THING THE GUARDIAN DID MENTION IS THAT THERE ARE FEW PEOPLE WITH COMPUTER(PROGRAMMING/SCIENCE?)SKILLS,POTENTIAL EMPLOYERS ARE SAYING THAT MOST TRAINING COURSES CONCERNING SUCH SKILLS ARE SIMPLY `SAUSAGE FACTORIES'.
ALSO A LOT OF THESE PEOPLE HAVE NO MATHS SKILLS.

But Sainsbury's were well chuffed, they did quite well over Christmas especially with their own luxury range - Be Good To Yourself, I think it's called? people are downsizing and instead of buying "real" luxury items they are buying Sainsbury's "luxury" items instead!

Yes Iris it was on the News. Tesco have not made a profit for the last 4 quarters. I shop a lot at Iceland, simply because if you spend £25 or more
they delived Free and since I don"t drive it"s a boon for me. Added to this, their prices are low, £1 for 4 pints of milk, always special offers and they
didn"t try special offers which were not.

Iceland have really great prices but their choice is limited (my only criticism of them)

So Panda Mum doesn't go to Iceland - Iceland goes to Mum

Hi Badboy.....yes, £1 for 4 pints of Milk, I bought a large thick sliced Farmhouse loaf of bread today for £1. Veg is not too much choice but the rest is
cheap.Tescos make too much profit for there be much to worry about, maybe they will close some of the small "Extra" shops.

I bet Debenham"s thanked their lucky stars that you helped increase their profits.

Tesco Shares have fallen 12.73% on news that the latest quarter sales were lower than expected. Apparently , their attempt to open up in Japan has
not gone well, they use a different name. In China , they are doing very well, found it hard to open big stores so came up with virtual selling at Tube
stations. Across a wall there are photos of produce and the purchaser just taps on say milk, orders through their mobile and when they get home the order has been delivered. All clever stuff eh? Sales are booming. in Stations that operate virtual selling.

Tescos are too expensive and when I go in there it doesn't look very enticing, not like sainsburys or asda.



My sainsburys has an upstairs now and you could spend all day in there if you wanted to....so much selection and at Xmas I got a huge leg off lamb for £12 which is usually £25 plus a large piece off beef for the same price.....the problem is......you can spend TOO much lol

Just passed Top Shop today,and it's looking really sad; the window displays haven't been changed for ages, they are looking really fusty and tired, and that's only the visible bits, the rest is covered with posters saying 70% off.

In fact I think all of Sir Phillip's chain are in trouble as our local BHS (Ayr) have been renting out floor space to Dorothy Perkins, Wallis and Evans for some time now.

For me, it's a matter of Sainsbury's or ASDA and at the moment it's mostly ASDA. If one particular store has a basic which I want, then the rest of my shopping will be done there. ASDA tends to cater more for local populations than the others, and since we have a fairly large Polish population, ASDA stocks a good range of Polish products. It's the only local supermarket that stocks the Polish rye bread, which I like, hence that's where I do most of my shopping.
