Have been a Tesco customer for many years...I shop there but haven't been there for several years. 95%+ of all my shopping is done online and is delivered. :cheer:

For my large shop, I use Sainsburys. For my top-ups, I use the local Spar shop. They sell goods produced by local companies, and I think it's important to encourage that.
However, for my pet supplies I have no choice but to travel to the other side of town as the supermarkets don't sell the things they need.

My local supermarket if one mile from where I live. The larger supermarket is three miles, so a very convenient location for both. Favorite is 'Haggen' grocery stores for me ...

I have always hated shopping, but I prefer Giants when I do go.

I have three big supermarkets within walking distance - about 10 minutes...Tesco, Aldi and Lidl.
I shop at all three.

Very disappointed with Tesco at the moment.

There’s only 2 supermarkets in my town - a medium size Tesco within easy walking distance and a smallish Sainsbury’s at the other side of town, so I tend to shop for basic store cupboard stuff at Tesco - it’s not my favourite shop but it’s the most convenient.
I buy most fresh produce at local market / greengrocers / bakers etc and some food at the local Marks and Spencer small food hall.

When we’re travelling on the boat, I use whichever shops or supermarkets are the nearest but I do find Morrisons have a better choice of fresh foods than most other supermarkets, so I am always pleased if we moor up near one of their stores.

I am not a fan of supermarkets so tend to avoid them…..preferring to shop in our village butcher’s, bakery etc and nearby farm shops.

I order basic ‘store cupboard’ stuff monthly from Tesco online.

Aldi is probably the one I visit the most. I do like Tesco as well though.

I walk to Aldi, even though it's a mile and a half away. I go once a week with a 4 wheel trolley. Otherwise I go to Sainsbury or Iceland which are both nearer.
