Here are some of your comments from social media:
Margaret Crosby: "Depends on prices. When the identical can of Baxters soup is 75p in B&M and £1.50 in Sainsbury's, for example, you'd have to be really thick to pay the higher price!"
Wanda Stockdale: "I like Aldi, but it can be a right pain in the backside to have to put your shopping back in your trolley and then pack it, particularly when you have a disability.
"My fave shop is Sainsbury's lovely staff and really helpful."
Dawn Cressey: "We use Sainsbury's, Asda, B&M as they are all on our doorstep but we have started using a brand new Lidl. It's very nice and I was pleasantly surprised."
Adeleine Stubbs: "Selective shopping mostly Sainsbury's as I prefer their fruit and veg but I do shop in Aldi for some things and I like the Nectar points."

Jennie Ford: "Aldi for frequent visits as its nearby or Asda for a large shop but Lidl has the best fresh bakery food by far."
Denise Houston: "OK for bits and bobs can't get full shop there don't get help with your packing or proper customer service desk."
Michelle Whale: "Tescos are doing a lot for the homeless instead of chucking food away. Good on Tesco."
