Anonymous said: Favorite supermarket?

Thank you, kind Anon, for the question.

I actually laughed when I read this question. If you’ve ever read my personal rants on LJ you’d know why. 

Where I live I am extremely spoilt for choice, with 14 supermarkets almost on my doorstep. Judging by your spelling of “favorite” I’m assuming that you won’t be aware how our supermarkets differ in size to American ones (you’d consider ours to be small in comparison); but the major player hereabouts is Tesco.  And Tesco tends to be my supermarket of choice. I must have visited every single Tesco store between here and London over the years. There was a time when I felt I was being sent a sign to go and work for them… but I resisted, like you do. 

Now I’m not dissing Sainsbury, Asda, Waitrose, Aldi, Lidl, the Co-op, Iceland, or even Morrisons and Costco further out, but Tesco is the place I return to the most.

However, since you’ve asked my favourite supermarket, and a larger version recently opened up near me; I would have to maintain that my favourite supermarket is Marks and Spencers. Or Marks’ or M&S, as they are generally known. The food quality is the thing that keeps people returning (even if the prices turn them away from doing a major shop). And a short walk from my home.
