    Has anyone seen Reids of Caithness biscuits in Adsa please? It says on their website that they are stocked in Adsa, but when I look on the Adsa website and MSM, they cant be found, so might just be North of the land. TIA

    If I could be harrised, I would go get 3 of the l'oreal mens gift sets, just for the deodorant for myself. Might go tomorrow if I get a chance. Am I right in thinking they would give about a 15 APG, or would it be ten? TIA

    However - don't get excited as it comes back "unavailable" (for me anyway) - I have found some on msm. What do you (or others) see here?

    (Second link is not posting correctly and has an error I can't resolve - you'll need to delete the space in "htm l" at the end of the link URL - when I go to edit this post, the space is not there for me to delete, so I can't delete it!)

    They are showing "Unavailable" for me and have been "Unavailable" in every store on msm for so long, at least in my region, that, if they are like that for you, you won't find them if you search for them on msm, unless perhaps your search is really specific, but you can find them from outside of the site by using Google and putting the product name and mysupermarket into the search box. I use this trick for searching for products at M that have (or may have, due to me seeing only other items in the same range) gone onto RTC in the store but are "no longer" on msm (except they are) as they have dropped off m.com. They do it seems remain there in the background, but searches on the site no longer bring them up - unless sometimes you are really specific and there is no other item that falls within the parameters of your search on msm. Need to be checking outside of the site to find what's on it and using caches.

    No answer to your query unfortunately - you wanted to buy them in A but they are, as you think, probably only available in certain regions - I may be seeing them at all, but as "Unavailable" because, to be there at all, they would have to have been online at some point but are no longer available in my region or they could be appearing as "Unavailable" because they went onto, or have gone onto, cheap RTC in the stores and are no longer available on a.com.

    The "Unavailable" could mean they are available in A on cheap RTC nationwide. Most likely they are not though - they may be appearing, with pricing for A, in other regions or, if they ever went onto RTC (unlikely), they have sold out from many places. I don't suspect the "Unavailable" is very recent - it's probably been there for ages (for you and me) but there doesn't seem to be a way for me to tell.

    EDIT: No - just checked the caches: unavailable on 17th and 30th November. 30th still quite recent though? But, as for 17th, unless they are on RTC somewhere after nearly three weeks...? But, you know how it is with M and similar could apply to A or any supermarket chain - items on RTC can appear six and twelve months later in some other stores. In practice, you have what you have available to you in your stores at the times you visit them. They could just appear anywhere at any time. Probably not on RTC though - except for any store specific damaged or short date pack that may be anywhere in the UK at any time.
