My wife buys both her groceries and clothing for the family at M&S which was heaving yesterday at the Weymouth store. Whereas I shop at Aldi or Lydl for household essentials like bleach ,toiletries , cleaning suppliers etc to help keep overall costs down. She and her sisters make M&S their first choice for groceries with Sainsburys second.

The whole Northern Ireland thing can be sorted easy. Just donate to the EU about £500k to their central fund so we can just supply the shops in NI as before. I know we shouldn't bribe people but it will probably work

John Redwood@johnredwood1hThe U.K. should be free to allow sausages passage from GB to Northern Ireland as long as it stops them going on to the EU. Not difficult to do. The EU needs to act proportionately.

Market report: Marks & Spencer was another notable faller – down 3 per cent, or 4.95p, to 159.3p – after an analyst report warned the retailer was still firmly in 'restructuring mode'. Marks has struggled during the pandemic and disappointed investors again two weeks ago after posting a £209million loss and vowing to close more stores. Jie Zhang, analyst at Alphavalue, said: 'Marks & Spencer has been in restructuring mode for a long time and this will continue until 2023. 'The attempt to reposition has weighed on the figures more than the worldwide unrest. 'There is plenty of headroom to catch up but all business fronts are suffocating and need to be upgraded (retail stores and online). This means continuing cash burn.' https://www.dailymail.co.uk/money/markets/article-9669237/MARKET-REPORT-Miners-hurt-China-plot-tame-inflation-fears.html

Why Amazon's supermarket shopping spree has still not paid offJeff Bezos's empire now extends to Hollywood, but the online retail magnate has struggled to break into the humble grocery industry   ? James Titcomb, San Francisco29 MAY 2021 • 3:00 PMJeff Bezos's main problem was the meat. In 2016, Amazon opened its first Go store, a till-free shop on the ground floor of its Seattle headquarters, which allowed customers to simply walk out and have their credit card automatically charged for the salads, energy bars or soft drinks they had taken off the shelves.What the company did not say, according to Jon Reilly, a former Amazon executive who was involved in its planning, was that it was originally envisioned as a fully fledged grocery store that sold fresh food."Jeff nixed it, because his complaint was that people were going to be weird about meat," Reilly says. "He felt like walking out the door with just a piece of meat would be an odd thing to do. That was his friction point."It was not the only time the world's most valuable retailer had seemed to have an identity crisis when it came to conquering the supermarket. While Amazon has been selling groceries for more than a decade, and supermarket executives have long feared the company's ambitions, the tech giant has not seemed close to turning the food industry on its head in the same way that it has for books, CDs and electronics.Online sales have remained a fraction of total grocery shopping and, within that fraction, Amazon has faced stiff competition. Meanwhile, the jury is still out on the biggest acquisition in its 27-year history, 2017's $13.4bn (£9.5bn) acquisition of Whole Foods. Sales at Amazon's physical stores, of which the upmarket grocer is the biggest part, declined in 2019 and 2020, and fell by 16pc in the first quarter of this year."I don't think anyone's happy with the progress they've made in grocery," says David Glick, a 20-year Amazon veteran and former logistics executive who left in 2018. "If you want to be the biggest retailer in the world, you have to be in grocery, but it's really freaking hard."While Amazon often charges into a market quickly, blindsiding incumbents, its progress in the food business has been the opposite. In 2007, the company first started inviting users to test food deliveries in Seattle (originally, the Amazon Fresh programme was designed for employees, some believed in order to let them spend longer at work). It was not until six years later that it moved out of the company's hometown, and it took until 2016 to move out of the US, arriving in parts of London.Since then, it has had an often confusing array of other services: Pantry, for selling shelf-based staples like shampoo, crisps and water; Prime Now, for household essentials in under two hours; Go, the physical stores that use cameras to detect what shoppers have picked up; and Fresh Pickup, which lets shoppers collect orders at special sites. In the UK, it has begun selling food from Morrisons. The Whole Foods purchase was the most audacious swoop yet, sending shock waves through the supermarkets."It's been a real spray and pray approach," says Sanchit Jain, an e-commerce analyst at Enders Analysis. "Those offerings have basically been trying to replicate the CD and books model for groceries. I think what Amazon overestimated was the consumer appetite for actually purchasing their weekly shop online.".... Full article.... Daily Telegraph

John Redwood@johnredwood1hLord Frost should highlight the absurd difficulties the EU is deliberately creating to block GB to Northern Ireland trade. He should say the U.K. will run this trade sensibly ensuring U.K. goods flow freely and stay in the U.K.

UK retailers report strong May sales as lockdowns end British retailers reported a big boost in sales in May, after lockdown measures ended the month before and a relaxation of Covid restrictions on hospitality drew more shoppers into town centres, industry data shows. This was the biggest increase in sales compared with 2019 for any month since the start of the pandemic.
