    Bigger than a Tesco Metro but not a full size supermarket either. Good section of food. Queues can be a nightmare!

    First to Review

    Not my usual style to write a review of a supermarket chain store, but someone has to say the following:

    * Finsbury Park is a terribly run store. Who is asleep at the wheel here?! Frequently there are no staff members monitoring the self-service checkouts. That's the most BASIC objective of a 21st century supermarket - to keep those self-service checkouts running smoothly.

    * Frequently have to go hunting for your own basket. Golden rule #2... how hard is it to maintain a steady supply of baskets at the store entrance?

    * Wine confusingly placed in close proximity to the dine-for-two deals, which do not actually count as part of the deal. I've never been caught out by this, but my friends have. I'm convinced Tesco do this on purpose.

    * The small bags around the vegetables frequently run out. Not rocket science to maintain their supply, is it?

    * Generally frustrating store layout - shoppers always fail to realise the self-service queue.

    fail fail fail

    A world apart from the Tesco by the tube station in Finsbury Park- this Tesco is more like a proper supermarket than an uninspiring corner shop. They seem to have everything you want- great for a cheap lunch, picking up something after work en route home to make a quick supper with and also good if you are looking for a cheap digital radio as I was last week. The shelves are kept stocked with things you want to eat and unlike most supermarkets, this one doesn't send me into an instant spin of panic- it's actually quite relaxing. I'm not sure how I'd feel if I had to do my weekly shopping in her, but great for all the bits inbetween, especially last minute bbq supplies. Rock on.
