    Which supermarket is going to be the most accessible to us "car-less students"??

    There's a Tesco Express in the centre of town.

    But the biggest would be Sainsburys which is also in town, about a 5-10 minute walk away from Halls.

    There is also an Iceland opposite the Sainsburys.

    Co-op/Costcutter pretty much a minute walk away from the halls.

    There's an Aldi's somewhere, but not really for the car-less.

    I thought the Aldi down past C103s closed? I walked past there in April to get to an exam at a local firm and it was all borded up!

    There's a Tescos in town and Sainsburys near by (as said) plus Iceland, there's also a Tesco under Unite halls out past the Cookworthy building - it's a bit further than co-op and cost cutter from most of the halls but it's cheaper and stocks a few more bits (well from what I remember!) I generally go to Tesco or Sainsburys (depending on what I want) but I might look into the home delivery thing in September depending on what I want!

    as people have said, tesco express and a medium sized sainsburys in town. But there is a mahoosive sainsburys by the main road out of plymouth, it's not walking distance but im pretty sure you can get a bus there from outside the uni if you wanted to do a big shop.

    Oooh you can get the bus out to Derriford hospital which is near Asda I believe, and there is a Morrisons out Plympton way but that you'd need either a bus or car for!
