Netto is like a scandinavian cash and carry without the luxuries! :lol: They don't even bother unloading the pallets, just dump em on the shop floor :shock:


There where plenty around here, but they did start in Leeds and spread out from there.
Mind they're no longer around and most are Asda stores now of the ones they kept. don't know who got the others.

Lidls? The cheapo Scandinavian supermarket? Upmarket from Netto, down from Aldi.

Now that I never knew - there is a hierarchy to these places.

Lidl is German. Aldi is German. Most of the products are sourced from the same suppliers. You could barely get a razor blade between the two in terms of quality of goods, many of which are excellent and knock spots of the crap sold in the major chains. Pure snobbery keeps the margins healthy for some supermarket chains. :)

It's only snobbery over here, if you go to Germany they are just like Tescos or Asda.

Well yes but they at least have proper shelves and merchandising. Also toilets and cafes.
