Most peculiar - I called in there this evening as I was passing, and needed a couple of staples (bread, milk etc) - deserted and desolate are the only words that spring to mind. The shelves were totally bare - in pretty much every section, except wine and expected, most tills are now self service, and it feels much more spacious - but what is the point if its not going to be stocked..?! Early teething problems..? The always friendly staff confided that they too were surprised it had not been stocked better. Anyone else experienced this..?

Strange - I was there at lunchtime, and all the shelves were full. But at least boroughbloke can't blame this on the Co-op.

...but I'd guess that their enlarged 'trading area of 325 sq m' may have been enlarged at the expense of storage space, so the staff don't have reserves ready to hand on the premises as shelves empty.

Teething problems maybe?

Have to say, being in there when busy on wednesday amd the tills layout doesnt seem to work. Feels very cramped by self services ones and queue is confusing

I visited the renovated store today for the 1st time - it is SO much better than before - a better layout, wider aisles, a million times better than the terrible Tesco Express on Long Lane

I shall make the extra few minutes walk to go to Sainsbury instead from now on !!

I used it on Tuesday evening and also thought it was a much improved store....better spacing of the aisles and a much better range of products. I detest tesco on Long Lane...there always seems to be a very slow queue of people waiting to pay and the shop itself is just a very very cheaply converted part of the feels cheap and very unfriendly...and the range is pretty limited.

Tesco on Long Lane is also getting a revamp soon

They no longer sell Rice Krispies but you can get at least two types of Weetabix! The manager was as bemused at this as me.
