Horwich being revamped = a bit of an uplift outside to the sign and entrance + clothing and electronic section flooring and arrangement made to be more attractive. Was hardly a revamp.
Purley would hardly call that a revamp LOL.
I can tell you tonnes about Horwich; - store is cramped in various parts, you just want to get your stuff and leave. - promotional stock is dumped at corners and end of isles. - checkouts are dirty and grubby, with the limited amount of space you're practically sandwiched with a trolley infront and behind. (people take at this store take their trolley shopping to self-check out, which then obviously creates mass queue's). - fridges and freezes; on some of them the glass is misty and you can't even see the products that well - parts of the store (i.e. the shelves themselves, shelf signs and promotion, isle titles, flooring, checkouts) obviously these are small individual points but combined they make the store look a good 20+ years old. Hardly inviting, which was my original point.
JP: Tesco Extra Purley was completly revamped in Aug 2013, Horwich in Oct 2015, ( including 6 instore High St. Brands such as Burtons, Pavers & Evans) to the approval of local shopers surveyed. In addition product lines have been completly revised. Perhaps you can tell us what displeased you?
Hi Opium, fair enough I do see your point - might be a combination of my writing style + me not liking to be definitive on everything (pretending to know everything inside out), I don't look to inspire people's decisions on buying/selling, should be done of research, just giving my two pence from what I know.
Visited the 3 extra stores this weekend just gone and Croydon Superstore, I also visit Walkden and Horwich every few weeks as these are built on shopping complexes and so easy to do mass shopping for holidays, parties etc. Reading was possible around March, but it stuck out because the customer service was dire and I picked up some out of date yoghurt by accident.
Camberwell and Dulwich express stores I was working around the area in March-April so frequently visited these then.
Thanks JP, when did you visit the 4 named Extra Stores ? Refs. to Phil Clark's era & weasel words like 'probably' 'recent times' etc. don't inspire confidence :) As I said, Amazon Prime offers MRW food cheaper than you can buy it at MRW stores & MyLocal collapse is a 20 million hit to the Balance sheet - SBRY is taking a 30 million hit on it's Netto stores flop.
