A MAJOR supermarket chain has dispelled rumours they are going to open a store in High Wycombe.

There have been numerous rumours from residents and businesses in recent weeks that an Aldi store was going to open in Loudwater.

The supposed destination for the supermarket was the Knaves Beech Business Centre near Homebase and Dreams by the slip road for M40 junction 3.

However, Aldi have told the Bucks Free Press they "do not have any current plans to open a store in the Loudwater area".

Nah, JustJus has a cavernous brain, mostly empty apart from a few lazy old knee-jerk vague ideas. Easily accommodate an Aldi.

We wish we had the expertise and knowledge that a lot of people on this site appear/claim to have. Possibly a degree level knowledge of demography , sociology , population trends and the buying habits of various people.
.
And that's as well as an in-depth knowledge of retail management with specific insights into the world wide marketing of non-British firms.
.
Being fairly down-to-earth folk ourselves , we choose to be guided by recommendations by clued-up consumer groups and magazines like Which. So as Wycombe has (as reported) a quite newish excellent Lidl store , why would Aldi chose to compete in the same town with a firm that gives better value and quality than Aldi. That's according to recent reports.
.
However one cannot know everything can one ?

So here we have 'news' about a non-event ie something which is not happening. Aldi has no plans to move to Wycombe. OK, I have no plans to rob a bank or steal a car next week. Just as newsworthy.

Aylesbury has both - they seem to both do well.

Mind you Aylesbury has 2 ruddy great Tescos and the world's worst Waitrose - so probably the competition isn't so acute.
Wycombe has a fab Sainsburys and large M and S. And a large Asda just outside.

I agree with you though - Lidl does have the edge IMO.

Yippee! So we ARE getting a Lidl; i like Lidl. They are not like other boring supermarkets with the same old boring products. Lidl has so many interesting and different products from Europe!

Sorry Ukip supporters, hope i have not upset you by saying something positive about Europe. I will understand if you turn your Backs to my Blog. If it helps i am enthusiastically humming "Ode an die Freude"
PS. Incidently, where is Nige? Two months ago, he was like a rash, everywhere. Now poof! Gone!!
