Two years ago, Tesco unveiled its discount chain Jack’s supermarket, which was named after Tesco’s founder Jack Cohen, with 12 stores across the country. The brand are passionate about working with and supporting hundreds of regional farmers, growers and producers in Britain. That is why, 100% of their fresh chicken, fresh lamb and fresh beef are British all year round and 100% of their fresh milk is British too.
Jack’s supermarket focus is on own-brand items to keep costs to a minimum, which give consumers great quality products and also great value for money. This is my first time visiting Jack’s supermarket in Castle Bromwich and it was very easy to locate. The entrance led straight into the bakery section and it smelled so great! Definitely a plus point to lure you in! If you are around Birmingham, do pop by and give them a try and I’m sure you will love it as much as I do!
Every two weeks, their Fresh Five brings you new fruit and vegetable offers to try with prices from as low as 35p! It is great to see their shelves are filled with products that are great value and healthy too. A bag of carrots for 43p. A lemon for 25p and a red grapefruit for 49p. This is great value for money!
They also do Delicious Family Meals offer that feeds their families healthy food and meals that are easy on the purse strings. I bought the pizza meal deal which consists of two big pizzas (557g each), two sides (popcorn chicken and pizzabreads) and one dip (three pots of garlic sauce). All this for only £10 to share between the four of us so it only cost us £2.50 each for a meal!
The pizzas were delicious and very filling for four of us. Only the pepperoni pizza was slightly on the salty side. The popcorn chicken was one of the best I have tried for a long time. I will definitely buy that again! The garlic sauce was slightly too runny but still very garlicky and herby.
The product range was great, especially as it is an average size shop. It was mainly Jack’s products and supplemented with well-known brands within each section. All of the products were clearly priced and labelled. I stocked up with plenty of fresh poultry and all the essentials items to make bento for my children’s school lunch for the week! Like making this yummy sweet BBQ pulled pork sandwiches Bento and delicious New York style pork ribs! Judging from the look of the meats, indeed they are great quality and the prices are very palatable too!
Also, not forgetting to pamper myself with this apple and cinnamon cake which was only £1.89. It was such great value and most importantly, it was moist and delicious. They also stock a small range of free-from items to cater for gluten-free.
The stores also take a similar initiative to the German discounters, with product launches of something different and exciting in their When It’s Gone It’s Gone (WIGIG) middle aisle on every Thursday. They offer a wide range of products from homewares to electricals, from children’ toys to garden furniture, all at unbelievable prices. But hurry as when it’s gone it’s gone!
I didn’t look into the wine section in detail but the shelves were currently very well stocked! Also, there were plenty of toiletries and cleaning products! I’m not stocking up but at such great value, I couldn’t help put some toilet roll and kitchen paper in my trolley!
I love that Jack’s supermarket stocks everything I need for my weekly shopping and it has its own bakery. I like the clean and spacious layouts that every item was placed neatly on the shelves than on the pallets. I would shop there again if I was nearby.
