    Definitely, its always convenient to have supermarkets nearby as you'd usually find ATMs outside as well as other useful services. Can you think of any other facilities inside a supermarket which you find handy to have?

    Coffee machines and contactless payments can come in handy

    True, these days we just want to pop by and grab a hot drink on the go!

    Do you think the limit you can spend on contactless payment machines should increase? Or, do you think it is safer to at £20 - £30 limit on it just in case if you lose your card?

    I wouldnt feel safe using it if the limit was much higher so it should stay as it is.

    Makes sense, it would be risky to not have a limit set on it. Especially ID checks is hardly done especially when there is a long queue of people waiting to pay?
