Just to add that 6 kiwis are also £1 at my local co-op, as is the freshly prepared salads and stir fries

Oh and the healthy living twin baguette packs are 75p I think. They're half price anyway and taste lush!!!

Well, once again easily matched or beaten at the discount supermarkets :-(

Lidl 1Kg Cox's apples were 79p the other day, I think it should still be current

Currently:
Netto 1Kg Oranges 99p
Netto 1.5Kg Clementines 99p
Over the weekend, Netto Grapes are 49p for 500g, so =98p kg though that may be finished today as it is now after 4pm!

Other offers around, just that these were the ones I remembered.

More people may have Co-Op stores within walking distance.
Hot from me.

Also the Co-operative offers Dividend (The original cashback/loyalty card)
For every pound you spend you get 1 dividend point which will entitle you to one share of the co-operatives profits at the end of the year.

Last Year Each point was worth around 2.46p (just less than 3p) however this year is showing even better profits so could be worth more.

Also unlike all othe loyalty card schemes you recieve cash (you can set up a bank transfer if it pleases you) and not vouchers.

and before someone points out that tescos points can be equated to 4p in the pound for certain offers there is double dividend on Co-operative healthy living lines including fruit and veg so assuming we only get what we got last year you would get almost 5p to the pond spent (on healthy living anyway)

In case it seems otherwise, it sounds as if I am merely pointing out the obvious cheaper options; and as we all know, something is usually cheaper somewhere else - unfortunately with the Coop, they seem as though they are all cheaper somewhere else, yet these are the publicised "bargains!" :-(

To be honest, I have only recently started taking an active interest in Coop prices with the impending takeover & conversion of my local Somerfield. For me it by far and away the most convenient and closest store; although it is generally expensive, that is well "buffered" by generally excellent offers which are also regularly and predictably repeated! From what I am seeing, combined with past personal experience, it is going to be a BIG shock to my shopping habits, as I have always found the Coop to be astronomically expensive when on holiday in N. Yorkshire, and now I am listening on here while people are singing great praises of what I consider to be pretty feeble offers that are already more expensive than everyday prices already are to me! Much as if I were being condemned to shop at Waitrose!:-(

Far from encouraging me, you are positively scaring me! I work hard enough to shop well on my restricted income level: I was used to a much higher income level, have always eaten well and with a lot of effort have managed to continue doing so despite being retired on ill health grounds for more than a decade; but it looks like I will have to leave the impending soon to-be Coop out of my loop of regular shopping venues and travel further more often :-(

oh forgot to mention its double dividend points for Jan aswell

Grapes are plentiful all over the country now, Will be £2.18 per kilo in all the main stores.The punnets grapes you get offers on are the cut off small bunches and the smaller size berries. They are are the best earner for the stores. Orange deals will all be dependant on sizes with Morrisons offering the best deals.Plums will soon be plentiful along with Necatarines and peaches ...but waych the peaches lots of dry eating fruit this year from South Africa. Not sure the Lidl apple deal was 1kg more 750 gms I imagine ! Netto seel 8 apples rather than weight so the Co op deal is hot for me :thumbsup:

By the way my first post and I import fruit and sell to some of the supermarkets

Thanks for this gonna be getting a HOT HOTTY HOT from me! Well done

The deal is not for me lol. Will tell my nan about this offer tomorrow when i ring her.

Kinda off topic but to balance the healthy eathing thing - my local Co-op had 6 Cream Eggs for £1.24 mmmm

So is this a serious post, or just one of those wind-ups?

Trolling is another way of looking at it :-( Either way, you join up specially to make a first post, and in it make a special point to call me a liar? I am amused someone feels the need to go to such extremes over a few bits of fruit! It is a while since something similar has happened, but not entirely unknown, so it isn't totally original :-(

The Lidl Apples were 1Kg packs. Clearly then, it seems they have other suppliers than you are aware of! Maybe it is outside your experience because it is English fruit, after all, as you say, you IMPORT the stuff! Few people anywhere consume more apples in a week than I do, and precisely because of that I know well the difference between 1kg and 750g and a numerical amount, as well as the all too significant cost as it is such a large amount of my food spending! They were Cox, English, and actually marked with the producers name (which I don't recall) a little small, and exceptionally good flavour, for that reason alone most memorable, as Cox's from wherever - here or abroad have been universally poor recently, especially the flavourless dross I bought in Tesco yesterday at a far higher price. I wouldn 't have minded so much, but Lidl had one of their occasional extra special reductions on fruit and Veg yesterday at the Hinckley branch, which I missed.

A simple apology will do, and it can all be put down to the enthusiasm of your newness to posting on the site rather than having the Moderator put heavy boots in.

Now to clarify other points, interestingly, I didn't mention the price or packing size of Netto apples at all (and no-one else did!)- yes, they do usually sell them in 8's, (although certainly not always) it was Oranges and Clementines in Kg and 1.5kg quantities so how that relates to either the Coop or Netto selling apples by the Kg is evading me! For that matter Aldi sell them in 6's as well as bagged in weight or number, which is just as irrelevant!

On the subject of what is hot, and what isn't: Just how does the impending offer of £2.18/kg (which is already common enough) make those selling at just a quid a poorer deal? Maybe there is lots of room for argument on the grounds of quality - ie. the variety, and on this, I could possibly even agree, although odds on they are all those very "ordinary" Thomson ones most supermarkets sell. If, as you suggest the major supermarkets sell them in bits and pieces, then certainly the ones I have bought from Netto are an even better buy than those supermarkets, as they are not cut off or small at all, perhaps because Netto have other suppliers providing decent bunches at a lower price? Perhaps you don't see the overall picture of what supermarkets sell as much as we consumers who get out to a wider selection of stores and different retailers rather than a limited list of the major names?

Thier mandarin-clementines are bitter. But two kiev cutlets for 99p were amazing!

@ nihcaj; the man's just trying to be helpful and share some knowledge, he didn't call you a liar, he just suggested you may be mistaken. You proved your point and there's no need to be rude about it.
and iliko's right, the kievs are delicious, as are the healthy living baguettes on offer

You think so? I was most specifically AVOIDING being rude, merely calling for an apology for being accused of making it all up! I have suggested he may be wrong on a number of points - giving the opportunity for me to be corrected - but unlike that, he didn't put it that way! Of course I would be most happy if he will confirm his intentions to correct that.

I think my offer to willingly accept an apology or a correction is anything but rude when my integrity is the one that has been questioned.

For your benefit, and the benefit of that poster too, you may not be aware that unfortunately it is not totally rare here for people to log on as a new user to make a "specific point" and "have a go" at someone - last time it happened to me, it was totally unrelated to the thread under discussion. The trolling comes in when the person slagged off gets very wound up (as it is designed to do) and falls foul of the moderator by slagging that person back, something I am trying very carefully to avoid.
Email addresses to set up a new user are ten a penny, and a proxy means the IP address can even be a new one! In this case, as before, it conveniently follows the pattern of new user, first post, but of course, that is only in the situation that it is a trolling post & I remain most hopeful that this is not the case.

Genuine posters soon show as genuine, and it is clear by the wide range of posts and types of posts coming from a user over subsequent weeks whether or not it is a genuine site user or not.
I await a reply, I have tried to be honest about the issue, and it seems pointless going on further about it, as it is drifting too far off topic.

Exactly. Even whilst I worked at Co-op and had 10% discount it was cheaper for me to drive to the other side of town (9 miles away) and do my shopping in Tescos). By the time £10 worth of stuff was in my trolley i'd more than paid for the petrol to get there.

Co-op is one company I would not be sad to leave our town. They built a larger store across the road from their old one whilst repeatedly refusing to sell the old store to any competition (been empty must be 2 years now). They have also bought out the only Spar in the area and the only One-Stop and now they've bought out Somerfields so run that too. :x

Get A life mate, don`t take it so seriously! He didn`t suggest you were a liar, YOU did!

I like the 6 Cream Eggs for £1.24 deal:p

Sadly yes the co-op is more exspencive than Tescos in fact I think it was about 15% in a recent survey BUT

Co-ops are cheaper that Tesco Express' are and Somerfield is/was. They Have just started doing some strong offers of late which has raised their profile as well.

The Co-op has NEVER tried to compete with The big 4 on price as they are quite small compared to the big 4(Prior to the Somerfield buy out). The Co-operative has always traded in a ethicall way and passed on its profits to its owners fairly based on how much they use their stores/businesses.

Large out of town Supermarkets have fewer overheads and rely on bulk sale to make smaller profit margins into bigger profits.

The other problem With Co-operatives is unlike TESCOS or ASDA anyone can set up a Co-op so in one town we had a United Co-operative shop, a Co-operative Group shop and an Independant Co-operative Shop. This Can Make things very confusing and standersised pricing is not a given. There are a Few Independant Co-operatives left which could have substatially higher prices. BTW I'm not saying thats what happened to you in N. Yorkshire.

Funny thing is There was a Co-operative with a Fourboys across the road from it. Fourboys Sold their shop to Tescos and the town rejoiced. After Tescos opened there was a very quiet week followed by tade beating previous years repeatedly. When the locals were asked they mentioned that they were really dissapointed with the prices in the TESCO Express since the opening few weeks offers. Tesco's had not really put the prices up but to run a small shop costs more so I don't think they have the same pricing structure as the Large stores they do.

My next nearest supermarket is Tesco's biggest store... I find it both expensive, and being disabled simply physically too big to shop there routinely, and from me, it only gets selective visits, quickly "in and out." I never did understand the reasons why Tesco is the no.1 popular store, however that is obviously because I look for very different things in what I consider most important!

Somerfield in itself is NOT a source of bargains, taken in isolation, however I am an extremely "canny shopper" and constantly shop carefully, and think ahead, and as a result the very good offers there mean it is somewhere I shop fairly regularly, and I have got used to depending on it, and it's very specific regular offers range, as well as shopping elsewhere for the best prices without being a total slave to traipsing around supermarkets!
Certainly, the thought of 15% extra when my local supermarket joins the Coop system means it will lose a good deal of the whole point of my shopping there, and I will miss it, and it will mean more effort to match the amount I spend now :-(

The ethical side of things is fine, and I agree with it all.... in an ideal situation, but unfortunately I don't live in an ideal situation - I live on an income significantly less than half NOW, of what I was earning over 12 years ago - in real terms today, that equates to something like a third of the spending power back then, and I can assure you, while ethics are a valuable personality trait, they tend to stick in your throat and choke you unless you are doing well! I don't now, and nor do I intend in the future to live like a pauper until I have to, and not paying more than I have to for the things I want and need is very much part of that strategy, which is effectively my first ethical consideration, as selfish as that sounds! :-(

I know the situation with the Coop structure, having dealt with the organisation in it's many parts professionally for many years while I was at work, and in fact even here in the Midlands, there are visibly different societies within the Coop structure. In North Yorkshire, no doubt some local prices will be different, but yes, the shopping I have done there is the same setup we are talking about here, and while that is fine for a week or two away, I would hate this to be the future!

In Coventry, the Coop supermarket sold its central site a couple of years back to IKEA, and removed the only major supermarket of the chain locally - frankly with the competition from ALL of the other major and minor retailers, I can't see the present Somerfield store surviving on the trade it will get!

The Tesco and Sainsbury's (T/A Jacksons) small scale shops I have been to in the past all seem to offer a different price range to the major shops - I think they price according tot the local trade rather than the big stores where the pricing is designed to draw customers from a bigger area. As you suggest, it may well cost more to service such shops, and it is also interesting that ASDA seem not to have gone into the small branches in the same way as Tesco, Sainsbury's and even Morrisons!

I think this must be the most rapid promotion to moderator yet!?

You post something about a "deal" and people follow up by agreeing and/or disagreeing with it, voting as they feel, according to the rules. They then have the option to talk about it or things related to it. It simply is not your place to tell anyone not to post, nor do you gain ownership or copyright to anything there because you posted first.

Now despite the Trolling where someone has accused me of lying in my post, to illicit a certain response (which so far has not been clarified by the one-off poster, so has now been reported to the moderators) I have tried very hard to keep the discussion very much close to the subject surrounding this deal ie. The Coop, and the quality of offers available therein, especially those fruit and veg ones you listed and more specifically how it compares with other offers there and elsewhere - I have a very vested interest in that for the reasons I have posted. Interestingly I have exchanged perfectly good "conversation" with others on the thread, and I have learned things too, not least the attitude and loyalty to the Coop despite it's high pricing. Now funny enough this IS a forum for discussing that sort of content, I have no idea where you get the idea it isn't, although I do note that you are also a relative newcomer, and may not be very used to the way the site operates, as it is not closely similar to many other internet sites, and there are a few things different to others.

If this is a rant, then there are numerous threads on this site which are wall-to-wall rants, and it might be very difficult for you to avoid them, that said, you can't ignore them all, but there is a very simple method to avoid seeing what I post - you put my name on IGNORE... the options can be accessed from the link to my page - if it bothers you, you are free to do it, I use the facility very often myself.

Not a wind up at all and this site is one I visit 4-5 times a day at least and think the contributors are pretty amazing :thumbsup: I have been a buyer of several deals off the site. I do import fruit and did sign up yesterday to mention about the fruit. I like to fight for the consumer and yes the discount guys do offer some good deals and there advantage is being able to turn on the deal quicker than the big 4 can ;-) The Aldi 6 costs them up to a 3rd of ther retail price in contributions
to the suppliers not always but it has been known. I shop at Waitrose, right down to Aldi in my head a deal is a deal :-D Hope to be a long term regular contributor where I can.

You conveniently avoid the issue.
No one is suggesting you are not an importer of fruit or whatever, what I said was you appear to have signed up specifically for this purpose, and your very first action is to accuse me of lying!

So do you still reckon I am lying then? You contend that I am imagining packs of apples as Lidl do not sell 1kg packs?

You neither apologise or correct what you said in your original post. We can't both be right.

Well, as another poster said yesterday, I made my point, it could have been simply resolved but that has been avoided, and it has been reported to the moderator, If you are not willing to correct or withdraw what you say, then at least I don't have to be pleasant and continue in a polite manner, so my only option is to not listen to you and I have put you on ignore for the future.

No one is suggesting you are not an importer of fruit or whatever, what I said was you appear to have signed up specifically for this purpose, and your very first action is to accuse me of lying!So do you still reckon I am lying then? You contend that I am imagining packs of apples as Lidl do not sell 1kg packs?You neither apologise or correct what you said in your original post. We can't both be right.Well, as another poster said yesterday, I made my point, it could have been simply resolved but that has been avoided, and it has been reported to the moderator, If you are not willing to correct or withdraw what you say, then at least I don't have to be pleasant and continue in a polite manner, so my only option is to not listen to you and I have put you on ignore for the future.



No reason to doubt you one bit :thumbsup: Lidl do operate some very regional deals and if you have found a 1kg bag deal then you have done well .
