  • Everyone loves heading down to the supermarket and grabbing the latest bargain or deal, but where is the best place to shop? Or if you’re more of a ‘stay at home and browse on the computer’ kind of shopper, where is the best place to buy online? A new Which? survey reveals all…

    The new survey conducted by Which? asked shoppers to vote for their favourite online shopping supermarket and in-store supermarket. Around 7,000 shoppers took part in the survey rating supermarkets in a range of different categories including; stock levels, quality of own-label products, quality of fresh products, value for money and staff friendliness.

    Iceland was voted the best online supermarket shopping experience, with 77% of the vote and beating five-time winner Ocado. ASDA was named the worst for online shopping experience with 65% of the vote. Shoppers found the site hard to navigate and were unimpressed with stock levels.

    The winner for a great, all round in-store supermarket experience was Waitrose with 75% of the vote. It didn’t tick all of the boxes however, as customers said it was overpriced and expensive with hardly any deals. Come on Waitrose, everyone loves a bargain!

    The Co-op was voted the worst for in-store shopping, with a score of 57% as shoppers were unhappy with value for money, offers and stock levels in stores around the country.
