A spot of Googling tells me there's a Sainsbury's, Simply Food and Waitrose within 3-20 minutes walk from Earls Court station. I'd probably want to pick up some fresh fruit, breakfast-type foods, sandwich fixings and snacks.
Would anyone be able to give me a rough idea of how these stores compare to one another? Do they all have pretty much the same food selection? Does one do pre-made meals better than the others?
I'm also wondering if I'd be able to find lactose-free milk in any of these branch locations. It's no big deal if I can't, but I don't want to go on a wild goose chase either.
Also, do I need to bring my own grocery bags or does the store provide bags?
Lastly, and perhaps most importantly, would Tesco be the best place to stock up on chocolate bars to fill my suitcase with?
Thanks very much!
