Lenton Sainsbury’s Aggros

Reasons why Lenton’s mini-market can BOGOF


Sitting prettily in the middle of Derby Road, Sainsbury’s Local is the mothership to students, tempting us in from our walk back from uni with its cheeky offer board and orange magnetism.

Like moths to a flame, we all cram ourselves away from the November chill…yet at a price. It remains unsaid as to how annoying Sainsbury’s actually is and we should no longer be silent!

The Tab names and shames the most annoying things about the ‘convenience’ store.

1. The temptations outside lure you in…hang on, that’s actually really expensive.

Big Night In...breaks the budget more than a night out...

2.  There are no Basics to be found. Instead, they sell products like this:

A real student essential.

And this:

Cheap and cheerful

I can taste the difference…and so can my wallet

3. THE MASSIVE QUEUE ON WEDNESDAY NIGHT.

All I wanted was some coursework comforting chocolate.

4. Awkward celebrity encounters

5. When you leave, not being able to cross the road because of all the buses

I JUST WANNA GO HOME AND EAT MY DINNER.

6. The selection of reduced are hardly useful

8. Sainsbury’s openly promotes distractions from coursework which can never lead to good things

Procrastibaking...

9. Dramatic encounters

This is what we have to tolerate!

To cap it all off, after going to purchase my sad chocolate bar to calm me after this stressful trip, my fiver was rejected for being ‘too flimsy’. I was accused of putting it in the washing machine.

I am so done with you, Sainsbury’s Local. I’m going to Co-op.
