    How 'posh' is Sainsbury's and the people who shop there? I always thought that it appealed mainly to the middle classes - am I right?

    It's just a typical supermarket that appeals to the masses - definitely doesn't appeal to the middle class.

    Ah, I see.

    Out of the 'big 4', I always ranked them in the following order:

    Sainsbury's and Morrisons
    Asda and Tesco

    Which is the most middle class out of the 'big 4'? I'd say it was either Sainsbury's or Morrisons.

    Well, perhaps lower middle class, but generally they're all working class outlets.

    I think Stephen Fry, famous posh person, praised it for 'keeping the scum out of Waitrose'.

    Tbh by normal definitions about half the population is middle class and a lot of them definitely shop at Sainsbury's. It's not particularly la-de-dah but it certainly manages to draw in middle class customers.

    Who cares honestly...All this upper class, middle class, working class is absolute nonsense.
