I have a general lack of enthusiasm for convenience stores – more of which next week – but there are some noteworthy deals at both Centra and Londis. Spar and Mace lag miles behind.
As a former rural dweller, I know all too well that the convenience store often ends up as your only option for dinner. Centra have a dinner for two meal deal on at the moment: Moy Park chicken kievs, Centra baby potatoes, Centra asparagus, and Centra babycorn for €5. Not the shabbiest. You can also pick up a lasagna and wedges for €4, or a tea/ coffee with a Cadbury Dairy Milk for just €2. These offers are valid until October 31, although they’re not currently listed on Centra’s website.
Over in Londis, there’s some decent reductions on Halloween booze and a rather unpleasant looking meal deal: those preformed chicken strips with Uncle Ben’s rice and a Sharwood’s sauce for €5.
