To me Sainsbury always was the top of the supermarket list in terms of quality of their products.
They are not necessarily the cheapest, but they do have the best quality and whenever I am entertaining people or friends I tend to get most of my greens, veg and meat from here because they also tend to have a very good selection, particularly with meat cuts.
The other good reason for shopping here is that they do Nectar points with your purchases so it is a great way to top up the points with each weekly shop.
I gave this 3 stars because im more of a asda fan to be honest
although my friend from that end of town assures me its his life saver in true times of need
Has all the ammenities that you will need like photos, magazines and dry cleaning
Sainsburys is a leading supermarket and I love it because it stocks a whole range of stuff, some of which I've never even heard of.
I love their organic range 'SO' and their 'free from' range.
You will find sections for electricals, toys, clothing, dry cleaning, photo processing, stationary and they also have a petrol station.
Not the cheapest supermarket out there but I have been happy with the quality. Its also worth keeping an eye out for the special offer leaflets they have.
Located in the Caldy Valley area in Chester, it has ample parking and is open late.
This Sainsburys is somewhat out of the city on the way to the motorways - certainly a car journey for most peope. There is ample parking and getting there is very easy. It's not the biggest supermarket in the world, though it has the usual range of produce and services. It opens late most nights but is not a 24hr supermarket.
Price wise I find it more expensive that Tesco, but easier to get to for me from the city centre. The food quality is fine, but nothing to write home about.
A new Tesco has recently opening near the city centre so it will be interesting to see how Sainsburys respond to this.
great shopping open late and until 4pm on Sunday. Prices appear to be getting more expensive of late.
Cancelled order after losing confidence in ever getting it right.
Will never recommend them for large items
Food store very good, they should stick to what they know
The main bad points was
First order wasn't confirmed
Second date it wasn't passed on to the delivery
Third day promised it arrived very dented in three places on top at front and scratch down one side.
Delivery men were very pushy, and insisted that I would get a discount for a damaged item. When I refused, the one used the tactic of I would accept it making me feel uncomfortable, they tried to get me to sign the document, telling me that I must sign it, I continued to refuse several times, if I had signed then the small print did say, if you sign you are saying that the product is acceptable. Another person who is not very assertive would have been put under a lot of pressure if this is the way everyone is treated.
Customer service really bad after ordering a washing machine from Sainsbury's
- One day never arrived and changed date of order at last minute
- Second day off work following week, when I phoned told that who ever put delivery through to us by email didn't pass on to the delivery section
- Third day (last Saturday) up at 6:30 for delivery at 7am.
- Delivery guys dropped it in the kitchen, literally, and insisted on signature, I declined and was put under pressure to sign, I refused, after looking at the machine, the front top had three large scratches down to the metal, and another scratch onthe front side, all scratches would be visible when in situ. The delivery men asked me to accept a discount to keep it, I refused. When I phoned up the centre, they told me that they could deliver another one in another two weeks, being as it had taken two weeks already to get the delivery, my washing had piled up considerably. I have totally lost conifidence in Sainsbury electrical, and they have failed to meet the basic expectations by a reputable company to give basic customer care. I will never recommend them in future, therefore the opportunity for Sainsbury to show how good they can be has been lost, and along with it my own customer loyalty and the loyalty of others who I have not recommended them to
This is the family home of food shopping. It caters for a large residential area and is a daily blessing in that it isn't in the city. It has hundreds of free parking spaces and is a breeze to get to. The shop is huge with everything you could need and there is even a pharmacy and photo development / key cutter stall there. Naturally there is a cafe and there are plenty of check-outs so as long as the staff have everything together you shouldn't find yourself having to queue long to buy your food. At this point i may ask you to pay attention to the home brand range. You will save so much by switching down to it. And is there honestly a taste difference? As a student i go further still and live off the basics range. It cut my weekly bill from £30 to £10 and i get my 5 a day and everything in between. Get a nectar card (which is effectively a 1% discount) and you'll soon be on your way to savings. There is a petrol station on site and being a supermarket station, it generally always offers the cheapest prices on fuel.
