Convenience Food Outlets In Central London

There are few large supermarkets in Central London, very few people actually live in Central London.
The market is for grab and go convenience food in small convenience size stores.
The major supermarket chains dominate with convenience format outlets all over Central London, you never have to go very far at all.

The largest retailers in Central London are Tesco, Sainsbury, M&S Simply Food, Co-op and Waitrose.

In terms of reputation, Waitrose and Simply Food are perceived as the higher quality, slightly more expensive chains – though at the end of the day a bottle of coke is a bottle of coke wherever you buy it from, but for sandwiches etc there can be wide variations…

Nearly all chains will have \’meal deals\’ whereby purchasing combinations of snack food and drinks you get an additional discount. plus multi-buy and straight promotional pricing

All stores are open 7 days a week until late, some 24×7, though on Sundays some stores may not open until late morning.
