Oh right thought it was other way round. Asda being the sister brand of massiveWalmart and all I thought they were the buyers.

There looking to change retail in some ways  

1 hour delivery slot would be nice though I do use home delievery for Morrison's occasionally but having to wait 3 days for ur shopping is ridiculous

Being from Yorkshire there’s a lot of Morrison’s here. Got some decent bakery, fish foods. I suppose because the quality is there on their hand baked products people willing to put up with the slower service.

It’s crazy I know folks that work Tesco and Sainsbury’s and your contract states I think you got to put 200 or 300 items per x amount of time Aldi you have to put through 1200 at the same slotted x time. Plus you have to do extra duties when called eg replenish stock whereas the big four  your on specific duties only. Aldi staff do earn that 9pound plus base rate they really do. 

Your right though especially come Xmas season it’s going to be like war zone in that place lol

Gateway? @grafter that’s very true hat where Lidl and Aldi have cornered the market they don’t have 16 types of ketchup and biscuits they have 1 or 2 of your main supplies no need for all the 20 versions of flour . I was in Tesco other day to purchase cheese and cornflour I came out with nonsesne snacks and a candle . They know what they’re doing

Woolworths in Angel was an integral part of my childhood.

Remember buying my first ever music from Our Price on Upper Street.

I know it not a old school shop/supermarket but me and my boy was talking about when McDonald’s had the meals for £2.88 and when they did the apple pie and ice cream in the tray thing...

heath had the play ting which I think is still there... and remember them stiff seats which turned to the side and the drink came in the white with the 3 m’s around it
