Photo-a-day 348: Tesco’s alcohol

20121214-211249.jpg

I’ve complained about Tesco piling up alcohol at the entrance before, as it really doesn’t strike me as responsible marketing. But today, the display was the biggest I’ve seen. I struggled to take a photo – as you can see – that captured the amount of alcohol there was on offer.

It’s interesting that Asda agreed in 2011 to stop this kind of thing, and Morrisons has started putting fruit and veg offers at the front of their stores, yet Tesco still persists with an attitude of pile-them-remarkably-high and sell-them-remarkably-cheap when it comes to alcohol.

Spotted in Sunderland earlier today whilst completely lost! I always get lost when I go to Sunderland city centre… it’s as if they’ve not yet discovered directional signage for pedestrians!

Photo-a-day 332: Massive sign

20121127-212613.jpg

Sometimes, I think I’m a bit critical of M&S… it’s only because I care. So, today, I thought I’d feature something they’ve done that I really like!

This massive “home” sign is really striking, distinctive, navigationally useful, helps break up the vast store into small attractive areas, displays products well, and is totally on-brand in terms of font and colour scheme. More of this, please!

Photo-a-day 330: My ByBox

20121125-211537.jpg

This is an extra photo to make up for missing a day earlier in the week.

Wendy and I often struggle to be in when deliveries arrive, and also to get to the Post Office to pick things up during working hours. So we’ve started using ByBox, and having parcels delivered to a nearby locker. It is fantastically convenient.

Tonight, we swung by to pick up a parcel delivered yesterday morning. It’s hard to think of any other delivery system that would allow us to collect parcels at 7pm on a Sunday!

ByBox tell me that they will soon enable posting of boxes from the lockers too, which will be brilliant!

I know I’m easily amused, but the little Christmas hat on the Tesco logo did make me smile… it’s quite cute!

Photo-a-day 324: An unusual supermarket concession

20121119-215232.jpg

This picture shows the Goldcraft jewellers, located within a Morrisons store near me. A jewellers in a supermarket seems a little odd to me – perhaps it did to others, too, explaining why its shutters were down today.
