Would prefer the Aldi and the Lidl to be closer but otherwise very good, thank you. Also got two independent health food shops and a plastic free place within 10 minutes of here.

Ahh I always thought of it as a high street retailer rather an a supermarket but this is an oversight, should have added an “other”

I once went to a small Asdas in Peckham (London). It was strange being in such a small Asdas

There are four Sainsboses in what I would consider walking distance. It’s nice to be able to walk to different one instead of having to go to Tesco.

I must live in one of the best served areas for supermarkets in the whole country. No complaints really.

Lidl and Tesco within a minutes walk. Covers the mainstream and cheap bases nicely, though would prefer a “better” main supermarket but - can’t complain!

Also have a Real Foods (Edinburgh-based Whole Foods type thing) 10 mins up the road, which I never use but really should. So I have room to expand my tastes and purchasing options

Literally in the middle of a no aldi zone

Luckily I don’t care for Aldi

Yeah I feel good. Lockdown has changed my shopping habits: I take fewer trips to the supermarket and do the bulk of my shopping in Tesco rather than going to Aldi for bargains and Sainos/M&S for weekend bits. Plus I know the supermarket layout best.

Wouldn’t mind a Waitrose.

An Aldi or Lidl in walking distance would be ace, but having the Co-Op and Mozzas up the road is fine tbh.

Within walking distance of my flat are three Co-Ops and two Sainos, never thought I’d say this but I’d love a Tesco for variety.

I’m closer to 4 Co-ops than any other supermarket, which isn’t ideal.

Not really relevant since we shop at Ocado, though :nail_care:

In rural Ireland so it’s a one supermarket in a town ten minutes away job

Now THAT is how you do a poll.
