manchester randomly added to the list of things on sale in the local john lewis equivalent type shop.
UPDATE: there’s some problem with comments on the blog at the moment. This is what two of my new zealish friends said:
Answers on a postcard.
a)Manchester (pronounced /?mÃ¦nt??st?r/ ( listen)) is a city and
metropolitan borough of Greater Manchester, England.
b)A linen and bedding manufacturer in New Zealand.
towels, bedsheets, pillowcases all equal Manchester – from a time when
all such products were produced from said city’s mills.
i’ve been thinking why i like this little corner of my local tesco so much. it’s the chaos.
the thing i love about supermarkets in general is how they put all the stuff ‘together’ ie all the ketchups are in one area, fruit in another, an aisle of toilet rolls and so it goes. i love the repetition and the colours.
but i also love the unstructured corner that is the reduced goods area. it’s a real pick and mix (rip woolworths). and i guess in these crunchy days, shops are trying to sell every last thing rather than chucking stuff away, so this area has been packed to overflowing recently with busted packets and split multipacks.
