I doubt you'll see either Waitrose or Sainsbury come to Lowestoft, maybe Pakefield and possibly Beccles.

I think we would class Pakefield as Lowestoft but it probably wouldn't even be Pakefield - more likely the South Lowestoft Industrial Estate which attracts the area name of Gisleham.

I thought I would post this in this topic as it is something to do with supermarkets.

After cleaning my teeth this morning and I was using the mouthwash which these days I normally buy in Aldi (own brand), I remembered that last week I bought a new bottle of a similar one from Morrisons (own brand) as I had decided to shop there for convenience as I was pushed for time. I decided to compare the two products and discovered that they were identical as far as ingredients and bottle were concerned. I took a few pictures and have edited them here which show the ingredient lists, and the bottle numbers on the base of the bottles. (The bottle numbers are identical followed by a different number after an oblique '/' which would just be the particular mould number at the bottle manufacturers. These two mouthwashes are almost certainly produced by the same manufacturer.

And the point of this post you may well ask? The difference in the price I paid - Aldi - 95p, Morrisons £1.44 :roll:

What if you don't have a fav supermarket but use just about ALL except the odd one or two of your list? :think: :D

Surely you tend to use one more than any other. Well if not you, Mrs. nikkai. :D
