Discount supermarket chain Lidl UK is going to roll out its ‘Too Good to Waste’ produce boxes across all stores, after a trial across 122 locations last year proved successful.
The boxes retail for £1.50 and are designed to reduce store-level food waste while providing nutritious ingredients at an accessible price. Each box contains around 5kg (11lbs in old money) of fruit and vegetable produce which is considered fit for human consumption, but either past its best or not up to current regulations surrounding size, shape and colour.
The boxes are prepared in-store by Lidl staff on a daily basis from fruit and vegetables which have been left on shelves by customers. They are then sold between store opening and midday. After that, they are sent for redistribution via Lidl’s community food scheme, Feed it …
Well looks like Lidl have scored themselves a little coup, with a gorgeous looking range designed by Heidi Klum and perfect for the festive season.
With sizes from 8-18, you can get the gear in shops from 3 December. My favourite items are this esmara pink sequin blazer for £19.99.
I also like this ultra chic jumpsuit with halterneck – it comes in a v-neck too, maybe better for the bustier ladies! Or what about this gorgeous cami top, love the sparkle!
And what about the faux leather leggings for £9.99. Versatile and edgy, these leather look leggings are perfect for the party season, and you can pair with a blouse and heels for a glam look. What’s even better is that they are machine washable.

Poundland, Home Bargains, Poundword, Poundstretcher, B&M and the 99p Store seem to be winning in the retail stakes, with four in five shoppers now visiting bargain stores and buying an ever-wider array of goods including fresh fruit and veg.
Data from market researchers Nielsen showed that spending at bargain stores totalled £4.9bn in the year to July, up 17% from the previous year.
Nearly four-fifths of households in Britain (78%) now buy from them, with more than half shopping at Poundland alone. Combined Bargain stores are more popular than the German discount supermarket chains Aldi and Lidl, which are visited by three-quarters of households. I guess that’s because there are fewer Aldis and Lidls in town centres.
Almost a third of the increased annual amount spent at bargain stores resulted from shoppers switching from mainstream …
Lidl is currently running a school uniform TV campaign where some of its items are £1! Today, Aldi and Lidl have undercut Asda, previously the cheapest supplier of school uniforms, by more than £3.
The German discount supermarkets Lidl and Aldi are in the middle of a school uniform price war, with each discounter offering an entire outfit for less than £4.
Lidl is offering four primary school essentials – two polo shirts, a jumper and trousers or pleated skirt – for £3.75 from today.
While Aldi slashed its earlier offer of £4 for its Back to School uniform to just £3.69.
The moves undercut other high street retailers by as much as 80%.
Tony Baines, managing director for corporate buying at Aldi, said: “In order to deliver outstanding quality at unbeatable prices, we have …
There’s a new discount store on the block. Founded by Stelios Haji-Ioannou, the brains behind easyJet, it will offer basic items, such as sugar, tea and sardines at ‘rock-bottom prices’.
The shops offers a range of basic items at ‘rock-bottom prices’, with an introductory promotion this month of just 25p for everything – including sugar, tea, sardines, tomato ketchup, peach slices and Jaffa Cakes.There are no branded products and the store says that it offers ‘No expensive brands, just food honestly priced’. The 25p shop is part of a promotional month, but after that bosses say they could rise to around 50p!…
Morrisons has revealed its Match & More scheme in bid to boost sales. Morrisons is first to offer a price match against budget chains Aldi and Lidl.
The supermarket is launching a new loyalty card which will give customers points if their shop would have been cheaper in another supermarket – including the budget rivals.
The Match & More card scans a database of thousands of products to find the cheapest shop.
It is the first system which compares prices with budget chains Aldi and Lidl.
Morrisons Chief Executive Dalton Phillips said the scheme was ‘the best of its kind in the UK.
‘Because it price matches the discounters, the Match & More card will provide the ultimate guarantee about Morrisons’ value-for-money.’
This new initiative follows on from the move In May, when Morrisons said …
Watched dispatches Supermarket Wars tonight. It was interesting to see how the Big Four supermarket sales are stagnating or decreasing while they are growing by 23% for Lidl and 39% at Aldi.
While the discount stores aren’t pretty, one of the reasons they can keep their prices low is that they don’t offer the variety as do larger supermarkets.
On average supermarkets stock 30,000 different products while discounters stock 1,000+ items. So less products, mean less storage, people needed and costs.
One lady said she would have spent £100 at Sainsbury’s but instead she got her shop for £53.
However, the discounters are not only for the cash strapped, but are also offering a small range of “posh nosh” which helps to change middle-class consumers’ perceptions. I wrote last week about the riding gear special …
Our Morrisons is having a major revamp and it’s part of a bigger drive to cut prices for consumers.
I recently asked if Morrisons could really take on Aldi and Lidl in terms of pricing. Well, let’s just say, they’re having a good go at it.
On 1 May, Morrisons pledged to cut the price of 1,200 products by an average of 17pc. I saw evidence of this today in my shop, with a firm favourite Jammie Dodgers down to 49p from over a £1.09. This price matches Aldi’s.
Looks like Morrisons is banking on the price cuts to encourage shoppers to spend more at the shop and less at Aldi and Lidl. Now I would welcome that as I would be able to get everything in one place and prefer Morrisons products sometimes.
