Supermarket blues

There are too many supermarkets in this small Market town.

Ten or so years ago when moving to live in this middle England quaint little market town there was only one main supermarket. That was okay though.These are construction pictures of the latest one that has arrived here and it was thrown up in a matter of months.

It is squeezed in between three others that have been built over this last decade. Now its too many…….

Dependent on my mood I have all this choice.Organic,exclusive or budget own brand. Fresh, line caught and superbly British or European cheap imports.Health conscious, diet sympathetic and high nutritional content or plainly packaged minimal budget packs of whatever….. Does it make my life easier? Being a naturally fairly indecisive person the more choice I have the more confused I get.

So now we are in a town with too many supermarkets.The original one was Tesco.

This one they have just constructed is Waitrose. The local paper headline was something like ‘Worth Wait – rosing for?’ if I remember correctly. Sigh…

It is sharing its car park with Lidl that was built a few years back.

Across the roundabout to Lidl is its buddy Aldi built about the same time.

Next car park is Sainsburys that has been here nine/ten years.

Yay ..I have choice. If one car park is full I will drive to the next ; that can be the decision maker.
