I'm really puzzled ! Why why why has Waitrose so far shunned se1 when it has plenty of ready and willing potential customers, I just don't understand it from a business perspective. Can anyone from Waitrose enlighten us ?
I think the business perspective is this: their rather large St Katherine's Dock store is only minutes away from SE1. I live on Tower Bridge Road
and it is a 15 min walk to Waitrose. What's more: you can do a big shop and then ask customer service to deliver it to your house on the same day.
I really think that the location of that store plays a role in their considerations on whether or not to open in SE1.
