It’s still there. You have to look under visitor posts.
With a reply from Mel. Or should I say ‘the standard reply’.
Has anybody pointed out how silly they look telling us multiple times that it is about to open, when we are trying to explain it ain’t happening?
In fairness, though, I suspect poor Mel was only communicating the information she was being given… for all management knew, they WERE due to open today.
There were plenty of clues that it wasn’t going to open today. We all knew it, and some people shared their concerns with the Twits Twitterers at Superdrug. But they persisted with the line that the store would open today. If we wanted to read the press release from six months ago then we could have done it ourselves. There is no point operating a twitter ‘help’ account if you haven’t got the willingness or capability to answer simple questions.
So September 29th has been and gone and it’s still an empty shop. Does anyone know of any update on this?
Waiting for replies from Superdrug on this as per tweets above.
I am looking forward to my visit today.
Progress as reported by local project team to SuperDrug HQ.
Nobody has realised that whilst they stated 29th September they did not say 2017!
I think that was taken care of in their tweet from yesterday which said “the store will own today”
Oops my mistake,
I shopped till I dropped.
Looking forward to my goodies John
Did you get me a back in FH present - nice smellies
Or have we hit a brick (sorry graffiti) wall
Sorry to miss you, girls even sorrier
I’ll have choc mice & sour raspberry berries on standby when you next visit
So it now turns out that the M&Co / Superdrug building is being squatted!
The owner (interestingly, still Mackays) has a court hearing scheduled…
So rather than having a shiny new shop in the high street, we have a squat.
Had Superdrug opened on 29th September this would not have happened.
Why does the first notice mention a pub?
I gather the notice is a standard one. Good point though. I wonder if a type diminishes their case in the matter. I am sure this gives SuperDrug sufficient cause to drop out if they were ever thinking about it.
On that matter do any of the squatters look like staff from Boots?
