Tesco and Aldi Support the Community

They’re basically local businesses, at this point.

Students have no money, as the saying goes, although this doesn’t seem to be so true here in St Andrews. In a town so flush with wealth and prestige you wouldn’t be alone in feeling guilty for shopping at national chain stores like Tesco or Aldi while locally-owned, albeit more expensive, businesses go neglected. As a possible salve for your conscience, however, you may be surprised to learn that both Tesco and Aldi here in St Andrews are making an effort to foster the growth of local businesses and to contribute to charity.

Tesco is promoting its “Bags of Help” campaign which promises to “[support] local community projects with funding.” The money it costs to buy a takeaway bag from Tesco goes toward the project, and customers can vote (by dropping money into a till) for which projects they’d like the money to go toward. Currently, the projects in the running are the Fife Folk Museum based in Ceres, the Byre Youth Theatre Project in St Andrews, and a Toy Drive in Cupar. Town and Gown relations in St Andrews are frequently strained, and with Raisin swiftly approaching, you can shop Tesco dry of booze whilst also helping the local community.

Aldi, on the other hand, is promoting the sale of a specially-distilled batch of premier-quality gin, made by local brewery Eden Mill. You can now pick up a bottle of Eden Mill gin in a variety of flavours (including Traditional, Vanilla and Blueberry, and Chilli and Ginger) in exchange for the short walk to Aldi’s out of town location. If you plan on getting classy on Raisin, this is definitely the way to go – first years, this would be a very well-received gift for your parents.

While these chain stores should be applauded for their efforts to relate to the community they serve, you might consider going straight to the source and spending a little extra by supporting a local store directly – such as Minick of St Andrews on Bell Street or Luvian’s on Market Street – from time to time. However, if this stretch is a little too much for your purse strings, you can still rest easy knowing you’re helping the community anyway.

  11. I look after a vape shop website directory and we have had a listing from a vape shop in the United States that likewise sells CBD product lines. A Calendar month later, PayPal has written to use to say that our account has been restricted and have requested us to take out PayPal as a payment solution from our vape store website directory. We do not offer CBD goods such as CBD oil. We solely offer web marketing professional services to CBD companies. I have taken a look at Holland & Barrett– the UK’s Reputable Health Store and if you take a close peek, you will witness that they offer for sale a rather wide-ranging series of CBD product lines, specifically CBD oil and they also happen to take PayPal as a settlement method. It seems that PayPal is administering twos sets of rules to many different companies. Due to this stipulation, I can no longer accept PayPal on my CBD-related online site. This has restricted my payment choices and currently, I am greatly reliant on Cryptocurrency payments and direct bank transfers. I have spoken to a barrister from a Magic Circle law practice in The city of london and they said that what PayPal is undertaking is altogether not legal and discriminatory as it should be applying a consistent criterion to all companies. I am still to seek advice from a different legal representative from a US law office in London to see what PayPal’s legal position is in the United States. Meanwhile, I would be extremely appreciative if anybody here at targetdomain could provide me with different payment processors/merchants that deal with CBD firms.
