  • Excuse my frankness, but when they sell such sh!te “McWines”, is it any surprise?

    The offy chains that survive are the ones that sell really nice stuff – Oddbins, Wine Rack, Majestic.

    Dumbed down sugary water sold under generic labels won’t do.

  • Sneaker – I am inclined to agree. The fact that a chain of shops like this can grow to employ 6500 people just goes to show how much the great British consumer has valued convenience over the last 10 years or so. As the purse strings tighten people will become far more selective about where they shop.
