Question for anyone to answer: If i ring up a Sainsburys store could i ask if they a certain item in stock and how much it is? Does anyone else do this and succeeded? I've heard people do this with Tesco.

Thanks for reading and maybe answering

Ask on Twitter, they can check all stores in your local area.
yes they can check - i've done it before
So the time it has taken you to write the post, leave a comfortable time for replies, come back and check the replies you could have rung the store up. Just saying!
A lot of supermarkets now you can no longer find the direct number, but instead it is usually an 08 number to a call centre.

just ring them, I often do that, they put you through to the correct department within the store - and then you wait for ages for an assistant to pick up the phone - and hope that they go and look for you .... but it does work! best one I did was for Toys R Us - they were really helpful and put an item aside for me (sale) for 24 hours - well worth my phone call! Google the store and see if there is a 'local' phone number.

I thought everyone was aware it's totally illegal to ring stores and ask them about things they sell.
I regularly phone to check stock as my closest Sainsbury’s is a 25 min drive
