Walked in this morning and can you adam and eve it, they’ve actually hire a team of staff and the place is full. I actually laughed out loud when I walked around in amazement. Great blog, great job.

I once got held hostage inside this Tesco. A ‘youth’ wanted some beers (on New Year’s Day) and when the staff refused to serve him he got angry so they locked the doors until the police came. They also locked me and an elder gentleman with the very angry young man inside the Tesco for a solid ten minutes.
THEY MIGHT NOT HAVE TEA BAGS, BUT THEY DO DO KETTLES.
I tried to buy carrots the other day for carrot cake at about 2 pm, couldn’t find any. Decided to investigate further and look at the tags to see where the carrots normally live. None of the bins had carrot tags on them. None. Eight different varieties of onion, no carrots?
THERE ARE SOMETHINGS THAT SIMPLY CAN’T BE SUBSTITUTED.
So I just went to our favourite place on earth. And wow, there’s been some changes:
* A staff member who was stacking shelves apologised for being in the way and moved so I could get to some produce. This has *never* happened before.
* I saw two people being helped to find items by staff members
* There appears to be a new manager walking around (he may be new, or he may have previously just been in the back)
* There were two other staff members making the shelves look smart (straightening the items, etc.)
* There’s things to buy on the shelves, including milk, which never normally seems to be there.
* The buy-one-get-one-free shelf has more than one item on it.
How long will it last!?
WE DARED TO DREAM, PAUL. WE DARED TO DREAM.
The fridge doors at Tesco Haggerston are incapable of sliding shut. EVER. Perhaps a vat of vaseline would help? I mean, I’m all for hotter summers but I also think polar bears are kind of cute… What a juxtaposition Tesco’s must find itself in - sell more BBQs or save the planet. Decisions!
I VOTE POLAR BEAR. AT LEAST THE MAJESTIC KILLERS HAVE SOMETHING IN THEM.
