Another French innovation?

Called in our local Leclerc supermarket today and found they have a machine situated just before you go in, you put your loose change in via a chute, it sorts and counts it and gives you a voucher for the amount you put In which you can use when paying for your shopping. Worth copying in the UK?

They've had one of these in my local Asda for a couple of years now. You can either donate the full value of the change to one of a selection of charities, or print a voucher for the total minus 7.5% for exchange at a till.

As in the thread above they have had them in Asda for years. Very handy although I always forget to take my loose change along.

Ah well, can't win them all.

Something that you foreigners have which I haven't seen here (England). A bin for battery recycling.

Albert heijn, the Dutch 'Tesco' - has one in every store.

I'm a bit like wiz-king, I have a mobile change machine in the shape of my wife and a whole heap of little change machines in the shape of grand children. (They change good £1 coins into bars of chocolate etc.)

Steady on, I might live here but I was born in Hartlepool, maybe shouldn't have mentioned that, although our team have just won promotion:-)
