Large out of town supermarkets are of course excellent places to terminate buses because there's plenty of room for a bus stand, but this does mean the grocery chains get several miles-worth of free advertising on bus destination blinds.
The 321 runs from a Tesco to a Sainsbury's.
The H28 runs from a Tesco to a Tesco.
