    If there is one thing that winds me up, even before Coronavirus, its is couples having to do the shop jointly and having to inspect and debate at length each individual item before committing it to their basket. I dream of having a "Ben Hur" adapted trolley with scythes on the wheels to deal with them
    1 -2 and Arsenal are still all over the place!

      We’ve got a fresh food wholesaler near us that usually supplies the restaurant trade, but are now delivering locally. Amazing selection of fresh veg, fruit, meat, eggs at wholesale prices. Better than anything from the supermarkets

      From a few visits, this is well stocked. The aisles, unfortunately, are narrow, which compounds the trickiness of avoiding fellow shoppers who can't seem to comprehend how to stick to the chevrons they've clearly labelled the floor with.

      Is it entirely necessary to go within an inch of someone in order to exhaustively inspect a tin of cat meat? Or to push into the spaces in the queue designed for distancing? Hopefully it's all due to nervousness and desperation, cos I don't feel encouraged about the coming new world of interconnectedness if it's innate.

      I had to the weekly shop last Friday at Tesco in the Holmbush, the queue to get in started behind the click and collect collection point, it took about 30 mins from there but everyone was respecting the 2m rule. Once in the store a member of staff provided hand sanitizer and another colleague wiped down the trolley and scan as you go handsets. Most stock was available, loo roll aplenty, no pasta, tomato sauce, beans but many lines had full availability. Queuing for the checkout was a 2m zone again, and self scan and the scan as you go checkouts were only open every other lane to keep to the social distancing guidelines.
      What?

      Did a fair sized shop at Waitrose yesterday. Bit of a treat as it's very easy to spunk money there. Back to Asda for essentials next time. Went lunchtime. 10 min queue to get in. Spotted an Albion player in the queue as I left - queue wasn't moving quickly which suited him

      I'm going to do my weekly shop tomorrow and I have a few around me and I'm really not choosy.

      (I had started going out to the local greengrocers, butchers etc, but still had to go to the supermarket for other stuff, before all this crap happened ).

      So, which (given I'm going to queue for ages around a car park), should it be?

      Sainsbury (Goldstone Valley)
      Asda (Hollingbury)
      Tesco (Holm bush)
      M&S (Holm bush)
      Waitrose (Dog stadium)
      Lidl (boundary road)
      Aldi (Shoreham - or maybe the other way round)

      I don't need statements on your view of each supermarket, just which will be easier to get in and out of. (And if you really need a decider, wine, or because I was too stupid to hoard from my normal supplier )
      Where's "Sainsbury (Goldstone Valley)" ?

      Went to Aldi Portslade yesterday and got a parking space easily and walked straight in. Pretty well stocked including toilet rolls. Then had to queue for Sainsburys WEST HOVE ( took about 30 min to get in )and still lots of empty shelves.
