Not long now. Hand over May with July opening but some branches have gone down hill customer service wise lately so they should be careful as there is a fair bit of competition around here now

Those Little Waitroses offer little added value if you ask me, I wish we had a big one, like the new one in Nine Elms...

I lived in Wapping right next to the big Waitrose. It was the only thing I missed when I moved back to SE1. I cried myself to sleep night after night. A bigger shop would be lovely, but anything is better than nothing. Is it sad to be excited?

(Okay, I didn't really cry myself to sleep, I just added that for dramatic effect)

Apparently the Southbank Waitrose will be a centre Waitrose
Medium sized. Free coffee n newspapers too boys and hopefully opening day champagne etc! Don't worry. Be happy!

The link James provides says "little Waitrose", as does this article.. 3,000 square feet. 1/6th of the average Waitrose. Waitrose shops traditionally range in size from 15,000-30,000sq ft (the average size sales area is circa. 20,000sq ft). little Waitrose (convenience) branches range from 3,000 to 7,000 sq ft. There are seven Waitrose Food & Home shops ranging from 45,000 - 60,000sq ft and the Waitrose Food, Fashion & Home at Canary Wharf is 74,000 sq ft. The retailerís total selling space is over 5.5 million sq ft.

Since it's only a little one, maybe I'll only give them a little rather than a big welcome.
