Supermarkets across the UK including Tesco, Asda, Sainsbury's and Morrisons have introduced a number of new changes to stores over the last couple of weeks, with tweaks to loyalty schemes, new charges, and lower prices but a few.

Here, Chronicle Live rounds up some of the most recent changes to supermarkets in-store, as well as how they affect shoppers across the nation.

Tesco -

Tesco has introduced a number of new measures as of late, with the first big change coming as a result of a lost appeal that Lidl had infringed the use of its yellow circle on a blue background for Clubcard Price Promotions. Tesco was informed that the design must be changed, and has started to rollout an updated version on its mobile app.

The new design features a rectangle design with curved edges, albeit the yellow and blue colourway still runs true. The Mirror reports that the supermarket has also introduced a new 'best of British' page online to help support UK farmers. As part of a new trial, Tesco has also started charging 10p for hangers in some stores.

Morrisons -

Morrisons has expanded its quiet hours to run between 2pm and 3pm every Monday to Thursday - as well as the traditional 9am and 10am slot on Saturday and the first hour of trade come Sunday. Elsewhere, the supermarket has rolled out a new loyalty scheme featuring 'hyper personalised' offers for shoppers on its More Card app.

Morrisons is also rolling out new children's shopping carts and checkouts across select stores following a successful trial. The checkouts will be supervised by a member of staff at all times to show kids how to scan items.

Sainsbury's -

Sainsbury's has kicked off Low Everyday Prices on more than 1,000 products - including the likes of PG Tips, Quaker Oats, Sensodyne Toothpaste and Washing Powder. It replaces the Price Lock campaign, but the supermarket will still run its Aldi Price Match initiative and Nectar Prices.

Asda -

Asda has announced that it will offer an online prescription service to be picked up in stores with Pharmacy2U. Shoppers can currently manage prescriptions online and order medicine for home delivery, but they'll soon be able to collect instead from 232 Asda stores.

Aldi -

Alid has changed the packaging of its own-brand toothbrushes to strip back plastic waste, instead using a cardboard alternative on two-packs of Dentitex Soft and Whitening toothbrushes. The firm estimate that it will help cut out 17 tonnes of plastic waste each year.
