Asda: tired and scruffy

Click to see ‘Asda: tired and scruffy’ in a variety of different sizesWe used to be regular Asda shoppers, but this trip to the Hulme car park, where I’m sat with the recycle bins waiting to complete a significant cash transaction, is the first visit in a while.

And boy has the former Wal-Mart star performer lost its way.

Asda has always been cheap, but it wasn’t always so chaotic or so scruffy. I only wanted a sandwich. The choice was abysmal. This is a world where egg mayonnaise is extra special.

  1. yep. it’s all about sainsburies oxford road.

    apparently there is a new fabians branch setting up in mcr… see my blog for details.

  2. Hulme ASDA is nasty, and probably not a good representative of what other ASDAs are like. Trafford Park is much nicer, but I’d agree that it is probably a little scruffier than certain other supermarkets! I still enjoy shopping at the Trafford one, though :)
