I didn't finish reading the article as it keeps on repeating the same throughout
@ a quick count 4+ X for some of them

Yes you do have to be choosy with any DM Article, and where they make a mistake (often) they keep repeating it !!
I wonder where they copied this information from ?
They obviously never read (sub) what they have pasted together.

I have heard similar comments in other Supermarkets too.
We have several within a few miles by car, I have to say I am not impressed with our local Waitrose.
It offers only a small choice of products, better quality from others.
M&S Food locally offers a small choice too, but better quality than Waitrose.
IMHO Sainsburys offer a higher quality product, but Tesco is more convenient.
Especially for non-food items, their returns policy (14 days change of mind) is excellent, for both In-Store,  and Tesco Direct purchases.
Delivery is next day with TD, and no quibble refunds are immediate.

However, Local Butchers, Greengrocers, Bakers, and other smaller shops around here are excellent.
And we use these whenever we can.
Many deliver too

Looks like the editor forgot to check the work of the kiddies before it was posted by the Dull Fail.
Now Zen, but a +Net residue.

What is the rule of thumb (X) number for memorising by repeating ?Huh
I guess it was either an intern or someone on work experience / workfare / zero hours contract Wink

After the hilarious quotes by shoppers in Waitrose read the ones overheard from ALDI customers
This place is fantastic value for money, I got a shopping trolley that was on display outside for £1':

Not actually 'overheard in aldi' though are they... should be called 'stolen from internet memes in an attempt to be funny
