    This is in a really good location between Armthorpe and Edenthorpe and just off the M18 junction 4 so it's easy to get to. There's a big car park and you can usually get a space quite easily although the people that shop here seem to be a bit thick as very few of them seem to understand what 'parent and toddler' or 'disabled' mean, which really gets on my wick, especially when the staff aren't interested.

    They sell quite a range of non-food items as well as a lot of groceries. I think their prices aren't much different to Tesco or Asda, and I think the quality on a lot of the things is a lot better than the others.

    Their clothes range, TU, is actually quite good and you can pick up some really good bargains when there's a sale on.

    This is a large store with a petrol station and restaurant.

    We only used the restaurant on our visit and found it clean and tidy. The staff were friendly and helpful. The food was served very quickly and was well presented.

    I can thoroughly recommend the breakfasts!

    I really like this store. They've got an excellent range of goods and although you may find that the odd item is a few pence dearer than Asda/Tesco, on the whole the bill at the end of the day isn't much bigger.

    The quality of their own-brand goods is generally excellent. They have a clothing range instore called TU which is quite nice and reasonably priced. Their kids clothes are great and although they can be a little expensive, when they have a sale on they can't be beaten!

    Cafe is quite nice, although the service can be a bit slow and the cooked food isn't the best. It's off to the far left behind the clothes & magazines as you walk in the main entrance, so could be missed if you just went for groceries.

    Their petrol station is handy as it's just off the main road and is very reasonably priced compared to others in the area. You also get nectar points which aren't as good as Tesco's Clubcard, but still well worth collecting. Plenty of parent & toddler spaces, and nice clean toilets - the important things to those of us who are forced to go shopping with kids!

    If you've been in the nearby Tesco, walking into this store will come as a relief.

    Well lit, wide aisles, good stock levels, not as crowded, this store makes for much more pleasant shopping than its competitor.

    This branch carries a very wide range of products. One example that struck me was the number of different bread flours that it carries. Very impressive!

    Fresh foods are of good quality. The non-food section is always interesting, and I often find new items. Clothing is acceptable, too.

    The petrol station has more pumps than Tesco, and is never dearer, though sometimes cheaper, and especially so at those times when there is the 5p off a litre when you spend £50 in store offer on.

    Car parking is better than at Tesco, too.

    I don't keep such a tight record of my spending to know whether it is true that Sainsbury are a few coppers more expensive than Tesco, but I certainly prefer shopping here, given the choice of just these two stores.

    Im a person who does watch there pennies ,and I find sainsburys a lot more expensive than tesco,,im not just talking pennies here,there is a huge difference at the checkout when I buy a similar shop as I would in tesco,I do however always take the time to come to sainsburys to buy my fresh meat, as although it is more expensive than tesco it is alot nicer and worth the extra money,as for every thing else though they genually charge more for the same products and I just dont find it good value,
    As for the petrol stations there is not really any difference between the two,they both have offers of money of per liter with your receipt

    People often associate Sainburys with higher prices - I disagree, generally they are priced in line with the other mainstream supermarkets, often there is a bargain to be had and they always have a good selection of special offers.Own brand labels tend to be good quality - better than other superstores.There is now a large clothing section which is particularly good for women - there is often discount on.Good sized car park.Staff appear well trained and friendly.
