Hole in the wall 6
27 May 2010
Finally, we find out what’s going into the shop-front they knocked down three post-war concrete retail units to build, all through winter and spring.
A doctor’s surgery? A pancake maker’s? A place where somebody actually repairs things, instead of telling you to throw them away so that you can buy new ones and keep the outsourced factories and container ports in work?
Of course not. It’s a Tesco mini-mart, just like the Co-Operative mini-mart on the other side of the street and the Sainsbury’s mini-mart and the other Co-Operative mini-mart the next street along. (That’s quite odd, though, about the Co-Op. In every other town, the residents complain about it being Tesco occupying twice as much retail space as any other store. Not here.)
Still, that was briefly exciting, I suppose.
