Sainsbury's or Tesco for cheap quick fix buys?

I can only get to one of these tomorrow. I just need some nice warm (look nice) jumpers/ tops.

Which would you say has more choice/ is better quality?

Sainsbury's for me.

Tesco tends to be more high fashion IME whereas Sainsbury's has a mixture of fashion and classics/basics. Their stuff usually washes quite well too.

I heart Tesco. I have just bought a dress, a jumper, a skirt, a blouse and two pairs of leather gloves for fifty quid. Fifty quid.

Beats sainsbos hands down.

It depends on the size of your local store. Most of the Sainsbo's near here are too small to sell much more than socks.

I bought a gorgeous long chunky cream cowl neck from Sainsbury for £8 last year and it still looks good as new. But a charcoal long cardi looked dire after one handwash - ragged and bobbly.
Don't have a tesco near us so not sure about their clothes but have had lots of good stuff from Sainsbury generally.

I prefer Sainsburys - more colour range and better quality. Also find you're less likely to meet people wearing it! I love their tshirts and scarves.

Tesco out of the two of them, Sainsbury's is too frumpy IMO.
