Our new local shop

Waitrose, Otley
Originally uploaded by reinholdbehringer

They’re building a lot of houses, business premises, a school and some roundabouts on some fields between us and the motorway. (That is, they started building them a couple of years ago, but most of them seem to have put on hold when the recession started to bite.)

The posters also seemed to indicate that there would be some kind of shop.

I always thought it was a great location because it’s so close to a motorway onramp, but I didn’t know what kind of chain that would go for this.

Today we got the answer:

In 2011 Scotland’s biggest Waitrose will open there, just five minutes’ walk from our house.

I’m not sure we can afford to make that our main shop for groceries, but I’m sure it’ll be a good place to get certain products, so I’m looking forward to it!
