Tesco going down the tubes is a decade overdue, the Orwellian filth should have taken their business to the discounters 5 years ago.

My local store had plenty of groceries available today. No shortage of anything as far as I was concerned. And it was that busy they'd put the traffic lights on when I came out

Probably be asking customers to unload wagons next.Pathetic.
Probably. With all the other work the company has pushed on to them the customers are just the same as dot com pickers now with the addition that they do our Mystery Shopper surveys as well. They're not served they're processed, just another cog in the wheel.

As bad as things are, they're about to get much worse. The UK is running very low on carbon dioxide which is used in, among other things, meat production and fizzy drinks. Some very senior people in both government and business are getting rather worried. The phrase being used is, "Black Swan Event".

All over the media today, emergency meetings on the said shortage, one expects panic buying to be the headlines tomorrow, you can see it coming a mile off.
Do not let anyone tell you there is not a decent job and life beyond Tesco.

Well that did not take long, top of the Daily Mail website tonight, story on empty shelves and it shows an empty produce department in a Tesco superstore.

Administrator Comment I have a strong suspicion that as regards our ages the inverse would be more accurate. :'(

Given the news that unite have rejected the pay rise offered at their distribution sites the chain is going to be squeezed even further.

Panic buying had been going on a few weeks in my local superstores people buying 4 or 5 trolleys of shopping in a week to stock their cupboards up.
