Cutting the tape…

I was too busy to pop down yesterday, but I’m very thankful to friend of the blog and long-time reader Andy Hollyhead, who popped over to the opening of the new Co-op store in Walsall Wood yesterday.

As I posted last week, the opening was attended by the local Scout Group, and lots of people were there to welcome the Co-op and, no doubt, partake of the free pizza offer.

Hi Bob

Here are the best pics from the opening ceremony.

Good turnout for opening. I wish I could say I declined the free pizza for health grounds, truth was I was running late for work.


It’s great to have some competition for the Tesco Express, and I look forward to visiting myself. Thanks too, to Andy, not long adopted but now a true Walsall Wood mon. You can enter, old chap, but never leave…

I’m sure I’m with all the readers of the blog in wishing all staff and customers well for the future – welcome to Walsall Wood! Picture courtesy of Andy Hollyhead.

    Tesco Express keen to ward off competition – just received money-off vouchers in the post – strangely only thing received from Co-op is a flyer and vouchers for the Chasetown store [either an error or someone at Mid-Counties HQ has a poor knowledge of local geography, methinks]

    I was offered money off vouchers or something similar when in Tesco ( Kwik Save / Somerfield ) today, funny dont remember any vouchers before, is it just coincidence the Co-op has opened? Do Tesco think I’m really interested in them when they are only interested in my business when they are forced to be?
    Mind how you go…….
