The refurbishment of Duffy’s Budgens in Lightwater into a ‘The co-operative food’ store seems to be progressing well. I had a quick peek into the changes, see images below [click on to enlarge]. Is it my impression, are there more lights than previously? Anyway, not long to wait. Was told by Mike Duffy that The co-operative intend to open towards the end of November.
This’ll means we’ll have food retailers from M&S Simply Food, The co-operative food, the Cook Shop, and Tesco – of which more later – in little ‘ol Lightwater. Lets hope they compete on diversity and not just offer the same food staples.
