NightAndDay so are you invested or just a financial advisor.

The crypto's dropped, stocks are down and property sales are falling through.

Never buy at the peak, trading 101.

Morrisons staff get a bonus, but doubt they'll lose that, compared with Tesco, Tesco gets Sunday premo, Morrisons gets an annual bonus and pays 10p per hour more.

They also get 15% discount, not on alcohol though I think, but they were c**p to work for when I was there.

londoner83

They get 15% unlimited discount for the employee and 2 additional 10% discount cards for relatives (capped at £1k a year).

Lidl in £2.35million fight with Tesco over claims supermarket rival ripped-off logo


QuoteRival supermarket giants Lidl and Tesco are set to spend £2.35m fighting each other in court over claims Tesco have ripped off Lidl's logo.

Lidl claim that Tesco are exploiting the background to their trademarked logo - a blue square containing a yellow circle with a thin red border - to promote Clubcard discounts to their own customers.

As much as I would like the judge to liquidate Tesco and crucify all current and previous executives and upwards on the Appian way, legally speaking Lidl doesn't have a leg to stand on, they can't patent ideas as simple as this as it violates FRAND rules. There's precedent in Apple vs Samsung where Apple was trying to patent the rectangular shape of their smart phones, the judge ruled against them saying they can't patent simple concepts such as shapes to their products.

Maybe a good time to start shopping at Lidl and Aldi with soaring costs and cancel your £2 vlh membership. Sorry nomad.

Admin: First of all it is not for membership, that is free, all donations go towards the running costs of VLH, none or insufficient donations then eventually no VLH.  In appreciation of a donation the member is granted extra benefits.

So your suggestion will only be detrimental to VLH members. To me and little nomad it will mean no more late nights problem solving, and all the admin/mod team no longer having to keep VLH legally safe.

Very little helps the voice of the unheard keep up the good work appreciate the chance to air ones views in safe anonymity

Jackwarda

Well, I for one and I am sure I am not the only one, are very grateful for VLH, there help, advice and support has helped a great deal. A swan gliding on the lake, looks good, but underneath the little legs are going like the clappers and a great deal of work. The background people of VLH must work very hard and a big thanks to them. Just saying!

Completely forgot about latest news.
On one end company makes a money but on the other end loosing it.
I am wondering how many people will switch to discounters with latest inflation levels crippling Tesco further or/and forcing more changes in contracts, employment levels etc..

Smallest Tesco

QuoteAnd another user Conor Davies added: "I was in here the other day and said the exact same thing." Whether it is in fact the thinnest Tesco in the UK remains to be seen but it seems that it has definitely drawn the attention of a few diehard shoppers.

Is it  :question:

Usual spiel, usual Tesco spin on things :-X

Trying their bully boy tactics with their buying power, getting products cheaper to bring people in their stores for a couple pence less than the rivals!

If some previous dispute pattern resolutions are followed, they will return with slightly smaller cans.

Cans of beer come to mind, but then that was for our own good to cut down on consumption  :D

You have to wonder how there's still an obesity problem, with food products shrinking in size  ???

The new scam is packaging has been shrunk to save the planet...forget to say so has the weight of the products inside   :-X

Checking the invoices off for DSS stock control over the years, the regular items were noticeably getting smaller...the one that springs to mind is quavers, from 22g to 16.5g  :o

Problem with smaller product sizes is that "some people" may need to eat two - so it's a worse problem

So when Mars Bars were 58g+ - one bar would be a filling snack

Now it's 40g or less, you "need" to have two. Difficult to half one and a half.

Biscuit tin

Why buy one regular sized Mars bar when you can buy a multipack of 4 slightly smaller sized ones for pretty much the same price, and eat them all.
