Skegness Aldi saying it with flowers and cheeky sign after cake row with M&S

The cheeky sign outside Aldi in Skegness.

The sign was put up following a new spat of the likeness of a light-up snow globe gin.

Aldi's picture shared on Facebook of a member of staff stood by the sign holding a bunch of flowers up to M&S was just the tonic people need.

More than 52,000 liked the image, which also attracted more than 4,000 comments.

Kim Harris commented: "M&S you'll never beat the mighty Aldi."

Lucy Longhurst-Miltham said: "Aldi social media person I salute you for keeping us entertained."

And Gen Neil said: "You are making everyone's day a little happier."

One comment did suggest another row could soon be brewing, however. "But where did the flowers come from though?" asked Rachel Patchett.
