Since becoming a student, I realised I wouldn't be able to afford to go my weekly shopping as Waitrose anymore (where my mum shops at home) and the nearest supermarket was Sainsbury's. I hadn't really shopped there ever before but had only really looked around Waitrose and Tesco. But Sainsbury's has fulfilled my shopping needs! I visit the Surbiton (near Kingston Upon Thames) branch which is just by the station. The staff there are helpful and friendly. I also find it easy to navigate my way around and find everything I need, even being a clumsy and useless person. One of the best things about Sainsbury's is their 'Basics' range. This is a range which means the prices are less, but obviously the quality isn't as good. However, I feel that with things like Pitta Bread, i'd rather spend 20p with the basics range than much more with the normal ranges. There is even a fresh meat counter, if you're thinking of picking up a few salamis! A downside would be that sometimes when I visit, it can get busy on the self-service check out area, which I normall use, and there aren't enough tills to go to either. However, don't let this put you off as this is a rare occaision. Overall, good place to do your weekly food shop.

That's the first time I have ever seen Sainsbury's and student in the same sentence! Can you tell me more about some of the services they provide; what they sell; why you only went to your closest supermarket, and so on?
