Re: [IPk] popcorn (gram scales)

Well all I can say is we must have the most run down Lidl in the whole
country. Definitely very down market here and not as many thing in there now
as there used to be.  Never seen anyone queuing for anything except at the
check out where there is only usually one very grumpy till operator. I have
rarely seen anything decent in ours they only sell stuff like plastic garden
furniture and trainers.  Once a year they sell those free standing hot plates
things for students.  It used to be better about a year ago and now there's
not much to go there for.

If anyone sees these in Lidl please let me know.   I might ring their head
office though.  I dont think it would be any good speaking to the staff in our
