Your Union Supermarket.
Essentials is your very own supermarket, run solely by the Union and completely not for profit – it’s a one stop shop to pick up those bits and bobs you need as a busy student at Leeds. We work with students to stock the things you want, so you can often pick up everything you need for your lectures on the cheap, as well as groceries and household products. If we aren’t stocking something you need – tell us. That’s the beauty of it being your supermarket. Not only will Essentials give you a lot of bang for your buck, but every penny that you spend goes right back into the Union. So next time you pick up a basket and stroll around the aisles, you can give yourself a pat on the back because you’re contributing to your own Union!
