Coupe only seems to care about the merger, he admits "they" got it wrong with the restructure as too many shop floor staff, the ones who actually run the store on a day to day basis, left so who's "they" then who signed it off .... No wonder they are losing market share. I think the merger should be a good thing but he needs to focus on the stores in the meantime as the issues are there for all to see.

Of Britain’s big four Tesco, Sainsbury’s and Morrisons lost share, while Asda’s was flat. Sales at No. 3 player Asda, which in April agreed a 7.3 billion pounds takeover by No. 2 Sainsbury’s, rose 2.6 percent. Tesco’s sales increased by 0.4 percent and sales were up 1.5 percent at Morrisons. Sainsbury’s was the laggard with a 0.6 percent sales fall. Aldi’s sales rose 15.5 percent in the 12 weeks to Nov. 4, while Lidl’s were up 10.2 percent, taking their share of the UK grocery market up to 7.6 percent and 5.5 percent respectively.

Discount retailer B&M is eyeing some of the stores that grocers Sainsbury’s and Asda could be forced to sell as part of their £14 billion marriage. He added it would probably be a subdivision of a superstore to fit with B&M’s current store formats, but he would be happy to split it with fellow discounters Aldi and Lidl. B&M recently did that with its shop in Tonbridge, which opened in an ex-Homebase store. The landlord split the space in half and Aldi is next door.

99% of customers go to a supermarket to buy food/groceries. Sure they might pick up something else along the way. If you don't get food/groceries 100% perfect, you are screwed. You would think Sainsbury's would remember the mistakes of the past (2003-2004) when they had major issues with empty shelves. Please do your own research. Ignore my gibberish.

Poikka Thats been my experience too. If you are a supermarket more than anything there a 2 things that customers really look for other than price and they are availability and short queues at checkouts and they are currently failing on both, even the self scan has long queues at present, just take a look at twitter it is certainly not isolated and neither is it fixed as Coupe claims. There is a choice of 3 large supermarkets near us and if it continues much longer people will simply go elsewhere.

Missed the chance to offload more last week on the 3.20's.Guess they'll be another one soon. Really like the company and want it to succeed but from an investment point of view, gone off then totally. Was planning on holding them till retirement (10-20 years) too, as little as a year or so back.

Agree with the comments about Argos, was a clever move however he really does need to keep his eye on the main business which will probably not even have a chance of being fixed properly till after Christmas imo.To many people took the redundancy package and it's left them with a serious shortage of experienced staff.

Sainsbury's now trades on a forward valuation of 15.6 times earnings, so is no longer a value buy. The forecast yield is a solid 3.4%, with cover of 1.9 and this could rise. Forecast operating margins are a wafer thin 2.1%, although up from 1.8%. Aldi and Lidl continue to squeeze margins. City forecasters reckon Sainsbury’s will finally post EPS growth in the year to 31 March 2019, of a modest 1% followed by 4% the year after. These are tough times for all retailers, but at least wages are finally rising faster than inflation. Long may that continue. Sainsbury’s warned of the uncertain consumer outlook as it heads into its key trading period, with the grocery, general merchandise and clothing markets “highly competitive and very promotional”. However, it remains on track to deliver current market consensus for underlying profits before tax of £634m this year. Today, Sainsbury’s is all about Argos while tomorrow is all about Asda.

Typical of poor management, they come up with excuse after excuse why the company they're runing is doing poorly. The only thing, people they do not blame are themselves and their poor management of the company. I noticed over the Summer how Tesco also had many empty shelves while our local Waitrose and Lidl were stocked as normal.

"Sainsbury’s was criticised for its empty shelves and shabby stores over the summer. Sainsbury’s has admitted staff cuts led to gaps on its shelves over the summer as it ran out of stock, but the supermarket’s boss has promised stores are now back to normal." Except stores are not back to anything like they were before, certainly round here anyway.

I wonder what the remaining staff think about the empty shelves, given their contracts, pay, pensions etc have been changed for the worse in recent times. (see the article above) Please do your own research and ignore my gibberish.

Sainsbury's blames staff cuts and UK heatwave for stock shortages Supermarket admits the axing of thousands of management roles left it unready for unusually busy summer Sarah Butler The Guardian Thu 8 Nov 2018 Sainsbury’s was criticised for its empty shelves and shabby stores over the summer. Sainsbury’s has admitted staff cuts led to gaps on its shelves over the summer as it ran out of stock, but the supermarket’s boss has promised stores are now back to normal. “We were undoubtedly challenged on availability [over the summer],” Mike Coupe, the chief executive of the UK’s second largest supermarket said. Sainsbury’s has faced criticism from customers and retail experts who have pointed to empty shelves and shabby stores since it took out thousands of management roles as part of a plan to cut £200m of costs this year. The company is also under pressure as it tries to push through a £10bn merger with rival Asda, which is currently being assessed by the competition watchdog. Coupe said changes to store management had been made over the summer because the company expected aisles to be quiet while shoppers were away on holiday, but the company had been caught out by an unexpectedly busy period as the heatwave spurred a wave of barbecue parties. Coupe said stores were now back to normal with better availability than rivals – but said the job cuts were necessary to adapt to changing customer habits, which include shopping more online. “I could go around any of our competitors and take photos of empty shelves. We are confident of underlying availability and service levels,” Coupe said. Coupe made the comments as Sainsbury’s revealed a 40% fall in pretax profits to £132m in the six months to 22 September, after hefty one-off costs, including £69m on redundancies and other restructuring at its supermarkets; £17m on preparing its bid for Asda, and £40m on making changes at its bank. Underlying profits rose 20% as sales rose 3.5% to £15.1bn. Sales in established stores rose by 1% in the second quarter, up from 0.2% in the previous three months, boosted by a marked increase in grocery sales despite the problems in stores. Analysts said Sainsbury’s performance was better than expected as the heatwave boosted sales of groceries, including steaks and burgers, offsetting falling sales of clothing partly as a result of changes to the timing of discount sales. Sales of the company’s premium Taste the Difference range rose 3%. Sales in supermarkets fell by 0.5% in the half year but sales in convenience stores rose 4.3% and online was up 6.9%. Coupe said Sainsbury’s was on track to achieve expected profits for the year despite a “highly competitive market”. He said that Sainsbury’s was expecting customers to splash out at Christmas as usual, but added “clearly we have to strike a note of caution as this is an unprecedented time”. Asked if Sainsbury’s would be in trouble if it did not secure a merger with Asda, Coupe said: “We are confident in our future on whatever basis that future is.”

The biggest problem is the UK is saturated with too many supermarkets as the UK has more supermarkets per head of population then anyother OECD country.

Toffeeman. I have no issue with using self scans and usually do however as Loganair says in the large outlet near us they only have 6 and they now frequently have long queues for them too.

Toffee - In the large at the edge of town Sainsbury's they only have 4 self-checks outs while in the smaller Sainsbury's in town they have 12 self-check outs. While at my local Waitrose moat of the time all the check-outs are manned including the 3 for baskets only and have 6 self-check outs which is usually manned by a kindly elderly gentleman..
