Thanks for popping in.
Our Waitrose car park has been hosting a film crew for the last couple of weeks - about 20 white vans and vehicles, it's all in aid of a new Lee Mack comedy series.
Sadly this store is closing in ten days time. I will miss it. Not just the Waitrose side of things but the actual shop. It's just the right size with a great car park situated close to an M&S for those clothing emergencies and has a recycling area in a really convenient place. An Aldi will be taking over but that's no good for me as we have a Lidl even closer.
The staff have been relocated, retired or taken redundancy. The shop has been dwindling for the last month as people move on or stocks have not been ordered. It's all been a bit hit and miss. I've been trying out other Waitroses all of which are further away and not on a convenient route for shopping, not even a park nearby suitable for a walk. Some have packed and fiddly car parks, some don't stock what I buy on a regular basis, some are really busy. I don't buy enough for an online shop either.
I will have to shop somewhere else.
I'll miss my free coffee and newspaper, my only coffee of the week.
I'll miss the quality and selection of goods from that particular store as well as certain things which you can't get elsewhere.
Have a good weekend, enjoy your supermarket while it lasts!
