Card Payments Available Again + Pending ReStock

Our ability to accept payments via Debit Card / Credit Card / Contactless smartphones should return to normal today (Tuesday 18th Jan).
 
Also we should have our first re-stock of the new year arrive probably during the last 60-90mins of business on Wednesday 19th (not sure why i’m bothering the amount of horn honking + verbal abuse from impatient morons the last few cash & carry trips when I’ve been parked outside trying to unload the bloody car)

27th January 2021 Re-Stock

Wednesday 27th January saw another trip to the Cash & Carry, and the return of more items.

We finally have cans of Happy Shopper Pineapple Slices back on the shelves after several weeks.

It also saw the return of Crabbie’s Alcoholic Ginger Beer after being missing from our shelves for the past few years (500ml bottles for £2 each).

Also re-stocked are:

  • Branston Pickle
  • Lea & Perrins Worcester Sauce
  • Blue Dragon Sweet Chilli Sauce
  • Barr D&B (Dandelion & Burdock) in 2litre bottles PM £1
  • Barr Shandy 330ml
  • Old Jamaica Ginger Beer 330ml
  • Happy Shopper Toffees (PM 89p or 2 for £1.50)
  • Happy Shopper chocolate mini eggs
  • Tunnock’s Chocolate Tea Cakes

  • Nescafe Gold Blend instant coffee (100g) PM £3.49

Also arrived is Mountain Dew Citrus Blast in 330ml can format (PM 69p or 2 cans for £1.20) to see if it does any better than the more usual 500ml bottles.


Additional
As well as topping up the supply of Happy Shopper 3-ply toilet roll 9-packs (PM £2.99), I also brought back the Euroshopper 2-ply toilet roll 9-packs (PM £1.69), which appear to have acquired a new intricate quilted pattern since we last stocked them a few years ago, to make it look like you paid much more than £1.69 for them.

15th January 2021 Re-Stock

On Friday 15th January we had one of the biggest re-stocks of items in quite a while which saw the addition of 128 items.

Included was the addition of “Strongbow Dark Fruit” Cider in 4x440ml pack size, price marked £5.50

It also included the return of Barefoot Malbec Red Wine after many months of being out of it due to purchase limits at the wholesaler during the first lockdown.

Another item to make a return after being out of it for a few weeks Yellow Tail Jammy Roo red wine after they were out of it the last trip before christmas.

New Bit of the Website

Welcome to the new wordpress blog section of the shop’s website.

I’ve added this to supplement, and then probably replace the main part of the website that’s been up since around 2016/2017 when I had to switch over from Netobjects Fusion to Mobirise software in order to start using Responsive Web Design in order to keep Google happy.

I’ll probably eventually make a full switch over to this wordpress blog built thing once I’ve got all the blurb copied over from the current website and got the majority of the plug-ins working that I normally use on my other wordpress installs + a few new ones specific to this website (review widgets, etc).

I’m hoping doing the website this way will make it much easier to update things on the fly, and get rid of some of the lack of flexibility and weird glitches I was getting with the Mobirise software.

It should also make it easier to connect things to assorted well known popular social networking websites + review websites, etc.
