Kwik Save is the saviour of our family. It allows us to eat well and within a tight budget. The stores themselves are always well stocked and the range of stock and specials seem to change every time I get there but they usually keep the same old products we buy every week but it can be a nightmare ...

"Kwik Save is the saviour of our family. It allows us to eat well and within a tight budget. The stores themselves are always well stocked and the range of stock and specials seem to change every time I get there but they usually keep the same old products we buy every week but it can be a nightmare to find them out of stock because there is usually quite a rise in price if you have to choose premium brands instead.

Kwik save outrage

AdvantagesOffers

DisadvantagesHeaps

"...wide there are hundreads of Kwik save stores,and they have been around for longer than I can or care to remember. I live in Nottingham where we have several stores,one of which is 5 minutes away from me. The stores I have been in are all fairly well laid out,with plenty of room to negotiate the isles. Cleanliness appears however to be much more of a store to store thing,with some I have visited being spotless and others being nothing short of ..." Read review

Stuck in a 1980s TIMEWARP

AdvantagesThere are lots of other Supermarkets about

DisadvantagesScruffy, Smelly, 1980's timetrap, horrible and Miserable

"...brighter and cleaner than the Kwik Save), yet their prices blow the “Kwik Save’s” prices away, with their cheapness. Choice of goods, well this is about the only decent thing about the “Kwik Save”, they do seem to have a lot of things in stock, but this is probably due to the fact that no-one shops there as much as the other supermarkets. Summary: Well, as you can guess, I don’t like this shop at all, and ..." Read review

New Concept - The Kwik Save of 2003

AdvantagesLow prices, friendly staff, pleasant and well organised store

DisadvantagesNot enough staff at times

"...when those two dreaded words, Kwik and Save, are mentioned. Dirty stores, littered floors and broken trolleys. And yes, I do not mind accepting that in some stores this was, and perhaps still is, the sorry truth. You only have to read other reviews on Ciao to see just how negative the overall opinion of the UK's longest established "discounter" really is. But either the entire nation is wrong, or our local Kwik Save is bucking the national trend. ..." Read review

An astonishing improvement.

AdvantagesMuch improved, branded goods at lower prices

DisadvantagesNot that much cheaper

"...worked absolute magic with the Kwik Save chain. About two years ago, Somerfield, in a deal that heavily damaged it's own profits and the companies overall resistance from take-over merchants such as Wal-Mart, bought the chain of dirty, worn out and tired looking Kwik Save stores. But, after a good 7 years of declining sales, delapidated and out-dated stores, and bored looking staff with an awful uniform, Kwik Save has avoided that grave of bankrupcy ..." Read review
