Shopping accomplished! The staff were great, queues were short and moved fairly quickly. I can see why the restriction on numbers is necessary - you wouldn't want any more customers, than there were. I was anticipating it being a stressful experience like the weeks before the lockdown began, but not the case at all!
Thank you for tips and advice x

Thanks for this pearl1. I'm going Sains tomorrow for a friend and neighbour who is isolating.

Went there on Wednesday morning at about 10am (more by luck than judgement) and there were about 8 of us in the queue. When we left after doing a regular sized family shop, it was much bigger.

Sainsbury's on lordship lane back to normal stock except washing up liquid now.

Seems they've got mountains of unsold Easter chocs to sell as well!

someone clearly over ordered Easter eggs, mountains of the things in DKH Sainsbo today all reduced by 90% and still no takers. Why don't they donate them to Kings College hospital for staff and patients to cheer them up, it would be a grand gesture.

M&S might be your best bet - they had good stock when I went in earlier in the week.

As I went passed poached today on Grove Vale, I noticed they had trays of "white eggs" not sure if hen or duck? Or cost.

Queues at DKH have been short this week, except for today where it went back to Edgar Kail Way.

At least double usual prices elsewhere.

Sainsburys in Forest Hill had eggs on Thursday last week but only in boxes of 15. They weren't there at 8am when the shop opened but spotted them in someone else's basket as they passed me so double backed. As I was only planning on buying a pack of 6 to free them up for others, I'm now being eggstravagant with eggy breakfasts!

And yes, they were still selling Easter eggs for between 10p and 60p

Stock is definitely better both at DKH and Bell Green, but I really didn't enjoy my last Sainsburys trip at the weekend, because of the customers. There were plenty of people wearing masks (good) but almost no attempt at social distancing from the majority of people in the store (bad) - lots of pushing past other people to get at stock and blocking aisles so people couldn't move past at a safe distance.

It really felt to me like people were getting back to normal shopping habits and/or felt like wearing a mask made them invulnerable. There were also lots of couples (of all ages) and groups shopping together, which I didn't think was permitted. I generally have been fine going out to do one big weekly shop but this was the first time since lockdown started that I felt really uncomfortable being out in public (even with a mask).

Just back from DKH. Stock a bit less good than last time but they had eggs.

Posted by malumbu April 30, 04:28PM

I'll swap eggs (absolutely no probs in the shops I use) for tins of toms. We can arrange an exchange somewhere like the Glenicke Bridge in East Berlin. If anyone would like to PM me where to get toms I'll whisper where I get eggs from in return.

Marks and Spencer by East Dulwich station had tinned tomatoes this morning

Sainsburys did have tinned tomatoes today, but all their own brand tins were gone.

Simply the best eggs I've ever tasted and they do min order 60. Ordered one day came the next. Will last for up to 3 months particularly so if you coat the shells in veg oil but they won't last that long. Pass it on.

How can they last for "up to" three months ?

Surely eggs can't last as long as three months?

With oil in a cool dark place up to 9 months! That said these are so good they are going down at an alarming rate! we can now look at the carnage at the eggs place in the supermarket with some wry amusement.

Here is a tip. Just shop as normal, where that can be done. Buying enough eggs for nine months isn't necessary and deprives others. But you all know that don't you.

messageRe: Sainsbury’s stock
Posted by bsand May 01, 05:14PM

These eggs are bought from the farmer direct - there is no shortage of eggs at the farms nor do you contribute to shortages at the supermarket. They have plenty of capacity for all. By buying direct you help to support ethical and responsible farming.

Then why are you talking about storing for nine months whilst taking a snipe at those panio buying eggs? Only I am aloud to take snipes from my lofty perch, on my moral high ground.....

You can't make a omelette without..

messageRe: Sainsbury’s stock
Posted by bsand May 02, 09:53AM

The 9 months was theoretical! The company I mentioned above previously supplied many high-end restaurants. So by buying from them, you are helping ethical British farmers keep their business going and taking pressure off supermarket stocks for people who don't want to or can't afford to buy 60 at a time. It's all good with no downside!

Because someone recommended a supplier of eggs, with a large minimum order. So shelf life is relevant.

Nobody is talking about deliberately stockpiling them.

What in heavens name do you intend to do with 60 eggs? They've a shelf life of about 7 - 10 days MAX.

mine last 3 weeks or so and i keep them in the fridge (we never used to)- i know they are better fresh for poaching or frying - I try and use older ones for other things.

I've never had the misfortune of opening a bad egg smiling smiley

messageRe: Sainsbury’s stock
Posted by bsand May 03, 09:56AM

Half of our 60 are already gone eating and cooking over 10 days. They are still as fresh and lovely now as they were when we bought them - quite a lot of baking going on here as well. Reckon we will have enough for the next couple of weeks then re-order. There are only 2 adults in our household but I can imagine with a larger family they would go down even quicker. You could even double up with a neighbour and split a batch. Anyway, I put the info out there for anyone who wants to take it up and I repeat this is not hoarding or panic buying, in fact, the complete opposite.
