I'm a bit bored so I thought I might ask where people shop for groceries etc.

The big 3 in UK are Tesco, Asda and Morrisons. I personally shop in Tesco, not just because I work for them but I also think they have the largest range of products at the right prices. Hey they didn't make £2bn profit last year for nothing.

So where do you buy your food?

Your last sentence implies that perhaps the prices aren't so right after all. crazy

Yes because of the vast range of products they sell.

They must be doing something right.

Sainsburys.

My local one is a right knocking shop too. It's like a singles bar without banging techno, and sometimes I feel scruffy going in there when I see some of the shoppers and their casually fashionable outfits.

It does piss me off immensely when an Audi TT or similar pulls up and parks in the disabled bays, and some high-fashion twat with scary hair bounces out and in to the store. Oh for a chisel....

When I actually buy groceries, I got to Whole Foods and at times Wally World (for the more "traditional" stuff)...sometimes I also visit specialty stores that only carry foods from a particular country.

We go to Morrisons. The produce is much fresher and lasts longer than Asda (which I think is more expensive)

Because my grandfather worked for Vons (owned by Safeway) for over 20 years. I shop exclusively at any Vons, Pavillions, or Safeway here in the Western USA.

I go to a little grocery store here called Cash Market. We also go to the Costco on 28C final at PIT.

Ah Bev, you already know where I shop  Wink

For everyone elses benefit, I work at Morrison's head office so I'll give you three guesses.  Wink

Before working for them I used to shop at Asda but then switched to Sainsburys as none of the chavs went there as it is too expensive for them! Much nicer shopping experience, but at a (worthy) price! Big grin

I only shop at stores with in-store pharmacies. Then I get paged when my prescription is ready, and people get to hear my name, just like I was a celebrity.

Esselunga in Milan. You can find veal brain, cow stomach and horse steak in the meat fridge. I was there lastnight and saw pkgs. of those floppy red crowns you find on the top of rooster's heads. I don't know the name for them. My guess is that you can stir-fry them or make a stew, I really have no idea.

What a coincidence, I also look after the wines and spirits at Morrisons!  Smile It's a good way of learning what the cheap plonk is and what is a bit better quality. Being at Head Office, rather than a store, my role is probably a bit different to your brothers as I have to liase with the suppliers and make sure they get paid on time for the goods they supply and also make sure the dreaded HM Customs & Excise are kept happy!

Tesco for BA miles...they soon rack up. Although the clientelle are a little downmarket where I am!

When I went to Uni I went to Asda at it seemed everyone went there, although the staff were a little snotty (refused to take my Amex card as 'it couldn't possibly be yours') and the food was crap. My housemates still go there although I refuse so now shop at Tescos online or Sainsburys.

Woolworths over here for groceries usually... my mum usually does the shopping. Sometimes I pop into Supabarn because its closer, but the range isn't as good.

Whole Foods (natural, local, and organic)

and the 'mom-n-pop' shops where you can find even more local and organic products.

No contest on this one round here I'm afraid.....

Our local Tesco seems to think they can fill their shelves overnight and that's it for the next day's trading-try buying pretty much anything after teatime and you'll struggle.

Asda fares marginally better but only because it isn't quite as busy-empty shelves everywhere from late afternoon onwards.

Sainsbury's...a mans shopping heaven-loads of stuff on the shelves,staff everywhere to help find things,EVERY checkout open so no queues and quality unsurpassed on the own brand lines.not forgetting the loads of offers they have on day to day lines...

Maybe I should get a job in their PR department  Wink
