Wouldn't the old Audi garage site in Dulwich village be good for a waitrose.

I think they may prefer a Harrods food hall. Waitrose is too middle class for the upper class dwellers of Dulwich Village.

Iím hoping Harvey Nichols opens in Dulwich, once the Dulwich Picture Galley agree to move out and let the set up shop there.

Lose one popular middle class status symbol. Gain another. Quid pro quo.

It would appear the train station William Hill site is the preferred choice for Waitrose. But we shall see.

Had a feeling this would be the case. The one on Lordship Lane looks too small for even a 'small' Waitrose.

Appreciate the foot print is bigger at the grove vale william hill but there can;t be anywhere outside it for delivery lorries to park up with the bus stop and the zig zag lines for the pedestrian crossing unless there's some access in vale end?

In the 1980s when my kids were small I used to knit for a designer who supplied Harvey Nicks. They had a 150% mark up on the goods she sold them. One day I decided to calculate my rate of hourly pay....2p an hour, yes, 2p per hour.. and I was by no means a slow knitter.In order to make any money the designer- a young Scots girl who lived in a 2 bedroomed flat in Brixton, had to purchase the wool in such bulk that it filled an entire room.

The Camberwell coop is also doing this now. Exciting times, being 10 mins walk away from a JLP collection point rather than a 20 min bus ride away!

What is the point of Click and collect.. ???

John Lewis and any other company will deliver to your door.

Surely only very small items can be sent C & C ???

Because you can collect them at your convenience instead of having to wait in for them.

Sounds ridiculous to me. Why would anyone want to go and collect something when they can have it delivered at their convenience? Bizarre.

Thats right,,

I take in parcels for my neighbours almost every week.. and they pick it up from me when they get home.

Some are quite big. Probably too big to leave at the Co-op. Where are they Left ???

Things I order on line (Very Rarely) I can Track on line as to when it will arrive.

Because many people work?

Because they don't want to pay an arm and a leg to have it delivered at the weekend or some other time when they are not working?

Because they don't want to take a day off to wait in for a parcel?

ETA: DulwichFox, not all companies use delivery services which enable you to track your parcels.

In some cases you only know a parcel will be delivered some time between 8 and 6, or even later.

That is massively inconvenient even if you aren't working.

And even if you can track a parcel, you often don't get details of the delivery time until the morning of the delivery, which again is pretty useless if you work.

It's often quicker to do click & collect too - can be available the next day vs a few days for home delivery.

Some places have a higher price threshold for free home delivery compared to free click & collect.

There is really no need to write off as 'bizarre' the fact that different people find different things convenient! smiling smiley

No... it's not going a small Waitrose. It's not going to be a Waitrose at all. Because the whole thing has been completely made up. Move along.
