It wasn't too bad at Sainsbury's

I've just returned from Sainsbury's and can report the store was surprisingly quiet.

Plenty of space in the car park, and no queues to speak of at the checkouts - not all of which needed to be open.

I went on the bike and was expecting to be able to smugly weave through traffic jams.

On balance, being robbed of a gloating opportunity was better than having to shop in a store full of people.

Any other Christmas shopping stories - good or bad?

Our local Sainsburys is very close to Fosse park shopping centre so that part of the area can be chocka at this time of year so we try to avoid if we can. We went at about 8.30am yesterday and it was rather busy then.

Sainsbury in Irvine was quite civilised, no worse than your average Sunday afternoon. As was Tesco in Kilbirnie last Thursday evening. Are people finally realising that the shops are only closed for one day?
There was a sign at Sainsbury to say they are even open on New Years day! A few years ago that wouldn't have been tolerated in Scotland.

Against better judgement Ms Clid and I headed into Manchester today. It was very quiet considering the time of year and the market in St Peters square was surprisingly people free ! Not a bad day really quite stressless considering !

We've just got a new Sainsbury's. The car park's great, it's got little overhead green and red lights to indicate the free spaces.

Anyway, I went on my bike today and it was fine.
