    I dunno, the machines in the window have a refurbished sticker on, Maybe a fly by night organisation, but it's a very high profile spot, rent must be high, unless they're getting desperate and accepted anything to fill it or maybe it's the competition winner from last year.

    I'll look forward to seeing the shoppers lugging a washing machine down the stairs to the m&s car park....

    With reference to this particular thread, should Tumble Weed’s name be ‘Tumble Dryer’ ?

    Not just outfit in Stafford, but rather all the stores across the country. Went under, brands got snapped up by various different companies, and the brands are only living on online as part of these bigger companies.

    First time I've been into the Wildwood Co-op for ages this week (as been getting deliveries and click & collect from places trying to keep safer) but thought I'd brave it needing a few things.

    Was expecting to see a nice big floral display somewhere instore if the florist had moved in , as advertised outside in the carpark....

    Just a woman standing at an out of sight counter against the wall behind the sanitisation station , with hardly any flowers in sight. Only noticed there was actually a florist there as I was doubling back searching for onions. Completely missed it the other time I went in this week.
