    Good Old ASDA! Someone needed to take the leap in the hope that everyone would follow suit and they ASDA had the danglies to do it. By far my fav superstore, always has been. Now even more so that they are being so much more considerate than other supermarkets to individuals, families and businesses alike. In times where pay rises are practically non-existent and businesses profits are eaten away so easily, we all appreciate cost reduction in any way. ASDA continue to lead the way! Given them all a huge pat on the back. :-)
