I just read an article saying that Waitrose are planning a large number of Little Waitrose stores in Central London and in South London in particular.

I would recommend Long Lane at corner of Weston Street: it would be an ideal location.

I am unable to post the link in the 'fancy' way:

I particularly like their meatballs - buy beef, get pork free.

Is everyone really getting tired of every street corner in SE1 becoming a Tesco's?

I am informed that Tesco pay the highest rents. The Guardian exposed Tesco's tax avoidance scams a few years ago - Tesco's certainly weren't happy about that.

In contrast, Waitrose pays its tax, and its staff are part of a profit share scheme.

With Waitrose's Socialist credentials established, hopefully I won't be accused of being elitist in wanting a Waitrose SE1.

According to the marketing people who staff the Berkeley Homes sales reception at One Tower Bridge there is going to be a supermarket in this development.

They could not / would not give any specific names, other than to say that it would be a 'quality offer'.

Let us pray that this means either M&S or Waitrose. I am really hoping for Waitrose, as there is already an M&S at More London.

Please God, let it be a Waitrose.

Floodplain - surely that is too close a spot to the tower hill one? I want independents like green smiths -bring back south east fruit and veg on saturdays!!

I would suggest there is about as much chance of them opening a store there as there is them announcing they have a plan to open a store on the moon.

Dunno what the fuss is about. They are over-rated and their prices are somewhere between attempting to extract urine and extracting blood. I'd far rather have a proper Sainsbury's store somewhere closer than Nine Elms.

I know that there is a large Waitrose being built right now under 'The Place' next to the Shard. It's not a mini Waitrose either (but not a huge supermarket).

You can see the enormous green 'Waitose' sign if the doors are open to the construction site as you enter London Bridge Underground station (from the south/hospital/St. Thomas street level entrance). I also had confirmation that is will be a Waitrose from a friend in the planning department.

It should be open this year, the same time as 'The Place' is ready for tenants.

The area is in desperate need of a larger supermarket, the Tescos on Tooley Street has a better selection of goods than anything else within walking distance however with the number of residents in the SE1/Southbank area its amazing there isn't a single large supermarket! I cant wait till they start to open.

And wasn't there some rumour about a mini-Waitrose next to the Gordon Ramsey restaurant on Great Suffolk Street some time ago (although both developments do seem to be taking forever)?
