That was announced recently Badboy, Walmart the American company owns Asda , but Lidl and another German company are the ones making a profit because they are cheap and stay out of Town where rates are highest.
ALDI PROFITS HAVE INCREASED 35%,BIG 5 SUPERMARKETS MAKING LOSSES.

That's the one Aldi ...thanks Badboy. Note, both Aldi and Lidl are Foreign no frills Supermarkets . Tesco is losing money, M & S Food Dept also, Sainsbury is or was doing O.K.

I wouldn't be surprised Badboy, Tesco expanded so quickly that at one time they small shops like Express , 24 hour shopping , huge Supermarkets , it was impossible to sustain that Market when the likes of German stores Lidl and Aldi offered better value.

There never wil be Badboy, consecutive incompetent and corrupt administrations since the evil Thatcher right up to the present batch of sticky fingered smooth talkers have eroded our highly skilled workforce and apprenticeship training schemes in favour of bringing in cheap foreign labour.

I think it might be Aldi. They're going into online shopping now. Two supermarkets opened around the same time in my area, Aldi and Morrison's. Whereas Morrison's is never busy, the checkouts at Aldi are always pinging away!

We have a Morrisons in my area Anna. it used to be packed but not now, it is really quiet. Aldi around the corner is always full. So it is happening everywhere and Morrison only have themselves to blame. I prefer Lidl , it is a bit further away from us but we go every couple of weeks. Their shortbread biscuits (tower gate) are the best I have tasted from a supermarket. I have got everyone I know buying them now, 55p a packet. I do not eat much sweet stuff as a rule but I cannot get enough of those.

Within a few minutes walk of my house I have an Aldi and a Lidl. Both brilliant, so Morrison's never had a chance opening so close to those two.

To be honest I think Aldi and Lidl will take some beating now. Good for them.

People are not stupid and why pay well over the top for stuff.. when its been proved over and over that for quality and price, these two leave the others standing.

Even my children's wicked stepmother (she's actually very nice!) has taken to shopping at Aldi and she has been a Waitrose shopper for many years. I stopped off at Lidl this morning and got 250gms of cherry tomatoes for 49p. And they've got lots of Greek items this week that look lovely.

Anna That's a brilliant price for cherry tomatoes. Punnets of Peaches... nectarines.. plums all at 69p all summer. Veg too is great.

Last winter Sainsbury had Brussels sprouts on the stalk for about 2.80 at Aldi about 1.50 at the most Why pay more just for the name when its so fresh. In fact I bet Aldi have their pick now from suppliers being a major buyer.

Same with the Pound shop. A friend had never shopped there, believing it was all non brand stuff. Couldn't get over the good brand names for a pound. lol Admittedly some are small versions but for a smaller family wonderful.

Our M&S in town is very quiet in the food part these days. Even sell stuff off on the date.. would have been unheard of a couple of years ago. Sign of the times.

MORRISON'S HAVE INCREASED THEIR STAFF PAY ABOVE THE NATIONAL LIVING WAGE,GOOD OF LIDL TO INREASE THEIR STAFF'S WAGES AS WELL.
SUPERMARKETS NEED TO INCREASE WAGES TO RETAIN STAFF AS THERE CAN BE A HIGH TURNOVER OF STAFF AS WELL.

All I needed this morning was tomatoes, but I had a good look round at the things I'd normally buy at Tesco or Sainsbury's. Both Aldi and Lidl are stocking more and more organic produce and Lidl has organic carrots for 79p for 750gms.
