UK supermarkets will begin a sweeping shopping season from the end of March to the beginning of April, bringing back all-day groceries and shopping from the shelves.
The announcement comes as part of a concerted push by the retail industry to get shoppers back to the shops and to the store, and comes as some brands have been forced to re-do and re-purchase their products following the recent launch of new products.
But, while the UK supermarkets have been busy rolling out the re-sale cycle, international supermarket brands have begun the shopping spree ahead of the first wave of international shoppers to hit the shelves and the UK’s major supermarkets have also taken to the internet to announce the start of the season.
As part of their efforts to reacquaint themselves with the international market, many UK supermarkets are re-selling their products from their online channels.
The supermarkets are looking to get their customers back to their shops as fast as possible, with many supermarkets including Sainsbury’s, Aldi and Tesco announcing they would start the season with their own re-sells and reorders.
Some retailers have been quick to launch re-deals, while others have been keen to reissue their existing products as soon as possible.
Sainsbury, which has its flagship stores in London, Liverpool and Newcastle, announced it would re-issue a range of items from its popular range of sandwiches, to a range from Aldi.
The chain said the reissues would begin on March 15.
Alldi, meanwhile, has announced a range for March 15 that will be offered online and in its stores, with its brand ambassador, David Kettle, announcing a range worth £12.49 at the launch.
The UK’s biggest supermarket group, Sainsburys, is planning a number of re-orders including a range to replace its Aldi supermarket in London’s Docklands and a range that includes its favourite meat-free range, the Chicken-Sausage Sandwich, which will be re-sold at Sainsburgs.
The re-releases will include a range which includes a range with a range and the range will include chicken and sausage sandwiches.
The chain is planning to rework the Chicken and Sausage sandwich as a meat-only product and a chicken and sausages sandwich will be available at its UK stores on March 1.
