You have to work at a certain place to be able to get a card,I'm not sure if it's within the nhs service.you need to take some id and a wage slip with you to the store.

It's called Marrans - I think it's much the same as getting in with Makro - you have to take some sort of proof of where you work - a letter on headed paper from the boss should do it, but give 'em a ring first to confirm?

I don't think the fresh stuff is, although it obviously is nearer to it's sell by date. Some of the tinned stuff is out of date, but the manufacturers put an extension on the date sometimes.

My husband got a temporary card issued through work. We went up but then had to produce a wage slip and some form of ID in order to get in. I think it was better when it was Marrens years ago, but when we went after registering this time I was very dissapointed.

It's for NHs employee's. I go from time to time. It's supermarket foods that have near sell by dates etc Marks, Waitrose, Asda, Tesco.

It has some really good bargains and each time you go there are different things.

Ring them and ask them if you are eligible. You have to take proof of adress and a utility bill.

That's correct. We deliver it there - by the truck load.

Anything out of date goes to the pig farm - by the truck load.

I work there, you have to work for certain companies, mainly foods. You can work for NHS, Police, and lots of other things. No Stuff is out of date, if it is we have to skip it. Sundays we have in fresh fruit & veg and most days we have fresh bread, with same dates as the in shops, if it is the days date it will be discounted as 10p normally but we never sell out of date stock

Do you not still sometimes sell out of date (but extended by manufacturer) tinned stuff? It doesn't bother me, things last for years in tins but I remember a long time ago, tins of out of date spaghetti for about 2p each.... I must be talking over 10 yrs ago though...

WE always sell in date things, all of our tins is well in date anyway, only things that are close to dates is like meat and bread, they fly out anyway so that isnt a problem, most sweets and that and baby food is until nov '08.

I used to deal with a company like this in Bradford. Manufacturers often make too much stock for their big customers such as supermarkets because they are frightened of letting them down and getting penalised or losing their contract. If the stuff is still in date they flog it wholesale to get their costs back. The one I dealt with used to sell all sorts of stuff esp M & S for fraction of price and even sold packaged airline meals.
