'It's a real shame all the deli counters are shutting'
Janet says it's a "Real shame" that Sainsbury's plans to close all of its meat, fish and deli counters permanently. "You can get the meat you need, the cheese you need on the shelves and it is a quicker experience than waiting in a queue to get the item from the deli counter," says Alex Johnson, who also shops at Sainsbury's in Sydenham. Sainsbury's closed its meat, fish and deli counters back in March, saying it was focusing its efforts on "Feeding the nation". Rival supermarket Tesco said early in 2019 that it planned to close fish, meat and deli counters in 90 of its stores and to operate them on reduced hours in others. Asda followed suit at the beginning of 2020 with its proposal to replace its fresh meat and fish counters with "Food for now" stalls - selling ready-to-eat food such as hot pies or sushi - in 150 of its shops.
