Well, how many branches of Lidl can one area sustain?  Huh

 
I thought it would be Tesco that would try and squeeze as many branches (whether it be norm Tesco or Tesco express) as it could into a town, how many does the Ilford/Redbridge area have ?

As I said somewhere up-thread, there are 9 Tesco branches of various sizes within four miles of here ('here' being IG2 xxx)

My feeling is, probably not that many but Tesco's marketing and development people would probably disagree.  Personally, I rarely visit any of them, preferring to do most of my grocery shopping online and occasionally dashing into whichever food retailer is nearest to where I am at the time for any odds and sods between orders.

Where I live,a leafy SW London borough, we have a M&S food store,a Budgens,Tesco  not sure what they call it but it's mid size, a mini Asda and against the wishes of the town Sainsburys won a planning appeal to open a mini shop where there used to be an independent retailer.
Asda is always empty,Tesco is busy Budgens stays open all hours,M&S is always busy.
Asda is talking about closing down ,no one goes there, so what's the sense of Sainsbury's opening in our town.
Lot of opposition to Sainsbury as it will open at the start of the town in a conservation area and will not give the right impression of a small high st full of independent shops.
I will not buy a thing from there and I hope no one else does.
I'm glad Tesco is going down the pan.I used to shop there but found that week by week they'd push their prices up a few pennies at a time,I find them very sneaky and I always felt cheated.
My shopping this week was Aldi and Lidl(very close to each other.I don't feel cheated there.Big Asda  almost next door...Yorkshire tea at 4.00,usually 5;70
Then on to Iceland ,a short walk,...frozen roasting veg and Aunt Bessie spuds,then on to big Sainsburys for Oral b toothpaste which was a cheaper than anywhere else.
All just outside our town but all close to each other.
Can't remember what this thread was about now but I've had a go at Tesco and Sainsbury's for free.

240 yanny,
We've tried cheaper teas and prefer Yorkshire to all the others.
I blame it on our tap water.
cheapest I've ever bought YT before is 4.50 on offer and that's not often so 4.00 is a bargain.
I compare prices of the branded products on mysupermarket,Aldi and lidl don't do much branded stuff so doesn't work with them.

I think it's probably in the blend of tea,not in the composition of the bag.
Eg,for soft water they throw in a bit more tea dust!

Forgot to mention in an earlier post that we have a small Morrisons opposite Tesco's,it's been open a couple of years.
It's always empty...and as a consequence is closing at the end of the month.
Good bloomin' riddance...I hope the same happens not long after the new Sainsbury's comes.

I haven't seen the advert but I popped along to my local sainsburys and had to take a photo of this..........
 
you paid 4 for 240 Yorkshire tea bags but I was expected to pay nearly 6 for the same amount....... don't think so!
