We seem to be growing ever-fonder of American imports. It will only be a matter of time before we too celebrate Thanksgiving! This year Black Friday has arrived in style. It seems that every second e-mail is inviting us to enjoy the sort of discounts that used to be reserved for the January Sales. Yesterday a local town was gridlocked as a discount store re-opened its doors after extension and refurbishment…
Lidl is back in Letchworth!
All roads led to the store.
The welcome back was overwhelming,
Queues stretched to the door!
Santa in the car park,
Bacon rolls for the day,
A Town Crier in full uniform,
Shouting “Oh Yeah! Oh Yeah! Oh Yeah!”
Despite the packed out aisles,
Grabbing bargains without fail,
Good-humoured staff manned the checkouts,
At the Lidl Grand-Prix sale!
As a farmer it’s good to see this, not only in the pictures, but reflected in the aisles.
