its a shame they are ripping the plants and trees out in the middle.

I thought that too i.e. taking out the plants seems a bit drastic and the workmen were hacking away!

Went to Sainsburys' this morning around 10.30 and there was no queue. Came out at 11am and the queue was nearly back to the nursery but seemed to moving ok.

It looks like the pattern is quieter during the week to the point where if you're lucky you can walk straight in or at weekends, you've very likely to be standing on Edgar Kail Way.

This is why I've stopped using DKH at weekends and use the Forest Hill store or the Local on LL which are much easier to get into.

Yes it's slightly quieter during the week but during the past couple of months I've regularly stood out on Dog Kennel Hill to shop for over 25 minutes on a week day as been shopping for my family and for vulnerable neighbours.

No queue this morning at 10.30 although coming out at 11am there was a queue of about 25-30 people.

Found a pair of adult light blue patterned fingerless gloves on the floor at the bread section and left with customer services.

do you think cheese counter will open next week?

messageRe: Sainsburys DKH - queue update please
Posted by Clutterqueen June 11, 11:08PM

I don't think so.

Was there yesterday and the whole of the meat and cheese section is still completely closed off.

messageRe: Sainsburys DKH - queue update please
Posted by Bic Basher June 12, 05:58PM

I can't see the counters returning until we've reached the level of total normality, which is some way off yet.

Monday is about non-essential businesses being allowed to open with strict social distancing guidelines, so expect more of the same queues we've seen outside supermarkets and pharmacies outside the likes of Primark.

10 min wait at 2.40pm this afternoon, when I left at 3.10, you could walk in.

when will.all this queuing end, as when your inside the shop the rules go out the window and everyone is on top of you.

No queue this afternoon and pretty much empty inside.

Posted by Clutterqueen July 04, 11:44PM

Went to Sainsburys around 2 this afternoon and joined the queue of 6/7 people and was in the store within 5 minutes.

Came out to a bit of a queue past the cashpoints.

Inside there were quite a few empty shelves of stuff that have been in stock over the past few weeks.

messageRe: Sainsburys DKH - queue update please
Posted by snoopy17 July 05, 06:20PM

people who are working with food banks have been clearing the shelves.

this lockdown just shows people up to be selfish, they'd walk over you to get the last donut.

today when I went Sainsbury. I went down the cleaning isle to get some sainsbury wipes. as I was approaching a lady with a trolley also went to the wipes section, I didn't mind as there were plenty of wipes available. Not for long though as this woman took three boxes of the wipes. I could not believe the brass neck of this lady.
it really is shameful behaviour.

You can say what you like here, but you gave up any chance of seeing whether you could influence her behaviour then several hours ago. By boxes, do you mean cardboard cartons, each containing a number of individual boxes of wipes?

messageRe: Sainsburys DKH - queue update please
Posted by snoopy17 Yesterday, 11:35PM

the cartons they stand up in she took the lot, I couldn't stop her because she scanned them on the quick shopping scanner.
I told her can you be any more greedy, she looked at me with a blank face like she had done no wrong. I wasn't gonna take them back out of her bag in the trolley.

messageRe: Sainsburys DKH - queue update please
Posted by ianr Today, 11:13AM

Thanks. I don't know the things, so still don't understand how much she took, or how many items she had to scan, but it sounds as if asking her if she could let you have just one item would by then have been impracticable. You could ask Sainsburys about imposing a limit. I don't go there often, but one of my staples is their 300g dried skimmed milk packets, and their system still only allows me to check out three. Probably like you, I wouldn't take all of the last three anyway.
