    It's barm so STFU.
    My local Aldi does a decent range of cereals, not brand name stuff but perfectly acceptable quality and a lot cheaper than the likes of Kellogg's.

    Just had my first ever click and collect from Tesco the staff there told me to stay in car whilst they got my boxes out then stood back whilst I got out and loaded into car all very easy but you can't use your clubcard plus 10% discount.

    I like their sugar puffs and their version of Weetabix but the shredded wheat and in particular, cornflakes can not be replicated, but their porridge in the blue striped package is top quality btw.

    The cornflakes copies are the same in all stores, they just don't match Kelloggs and let's be honest they don't even get close.

    I should have menioned l have to use a walking aid and they might have been concerned for me standing. A crutch is good for walking but not much good to stop a virus.
    I would prefer home delivery but C and C is a great help not only saving me hobbling round the store but also because it means a quick in and out and just dealing with two people close up.

    I'll tell you what isn't helping is people who could visit the store still using deliveries.
    I have several mates and customers (who in fairness normally use delivery), who haven't given a thought that they shouldn't be using it at the moment.
    It started off with a mate ranting on facebook that all these "new twats" nicking his slots. Once pointed out that he is more than capable/fit to go and visit and all these "new twats" just might be vulnerable or in danger, he apologised and said he would stop deliveries until things calm down.
    Maybe there should be a campaign to make people more aware?

    I believe ASDA have been great working with the authorities. A few of my vulnerable customers have actually been contacted by ASDA directly saying they have been informed they need priority slots. This was without them having made any contact in the first place. Good stuff!

    I agree 100% with what you are saying, but Sainsbury's are also contacting the Government list of vulnerable people. Just add in Tesco and Morrisons to do the same and the market is cornered. Theoretically a person on the list could shop at all four stores separately denying three others the opportunity to shop at all.
    The list should have been co-oridinated and people given the opportunity to select which store they are going to use freeing up slots at other stores.

    The more people we get using online delivery means there are fewer people able to catch the virus, which helps everyone, vulnerable or not, in the long run.

    Your right. Hopefully all these lessons are being saved for the next time something like this happens.
