Bath is a wonderful town, if you are a tourist. However as a local its not so great. Saying that the Supermarkets in Bath have noticably improved in the past five years. As a city we now boast of Supermarkets such as: Somerfield - Found in the town centre, this has much improved, products are the usual items that you can expect, such as dairy products, deli etc. You can also now buy a small selection of CDs and during the summer, barbeque products. A fairly good shop for reasonable prices, and often good offers. They also offer a home delivery service. Allways a good idea to check first before you start shopping, that they've not finished for that day. Asda - Found on the London road, a recent acquisition to Bath. This is great if you have a car, not so great if you dont as its a little out of the way. However having said that, they do brilliant deals every week, which can save you a fair bit of money. Usually you can only buy a maximum of 3 of each item on offer. Perhaps you could take a friend.A shoppers paradise, with all the bargains to be had. Sainsburys- Found at Green Park. As you can imagine, this a very large, very busy store. Ample parking is available, which is free when you purchase something from the store. Fairly good prices, a large stock of products. They also offer online shopping,which is useful. As well as Sainsburys, there sister store Homebase is within walking distance. Good store if looking for the unusual or exotic. Marks and Spencers Foodhall- Not for your average shopper this one. They sell a wide variety of products, but mainly they cater for people who like something different. You can buy unusual food here. They also sell wines and spirits here too. Unfortunately they do not have a car park. Dont really offer value for money products. You will want a fair bit of cash to shop here. The food is delicioys though, if you can afford it. Waitrose- A shop that tends to sell a wide va
riety of products, to suit most pockets. They have a deli, frozen products, chilled products, tinned and fresh. A great place to get fresh herbs etc. You can always get a bargain here. Staff are usually bright and cheerful. You can also purchase savings stamps here. All in all pretty good.
Bath is lovely town. And caters very well for the tourist and visitors but not for the people who live there. Bath has the following supermarkets Sainsbury's -Has had a refit about a year or two ago. It is a bright and light supermarket. Good range but limited opening hours 8am -10pm. Expensive. Waitrose -A small rather specialised supermarket as well as being upmarket and even more expensive than Sainsbury's close to town and the library. Somerfield - A small poky store. Can't see how you can do a full shop in there. Cheap and cheerful. Iceland-well ok if you want frozen food. And they have two which is good. Overall not much choice but at least you can fall back on Sainsbury's. Only Sainsbury's has it own car park.
