Swanage co-op: welcome to The Gulag
Another new year, and another five day stretch of empty shelves in co-op. A display of fresh goods that any Russian store would have been proud of 30 years ago.
The years most predictable event (the end of he year) not only bought the anticipated crowds, empty shelves, but also some underhand cad like behaviour in the store.
Today my wife managed to get the last two (yes two) peppers, smiled and enjoyed her little shopping victory in the face of such adversity, but upon arrival at the checkout found only one pepper in her basket.
Someone had taken her pepper from the basket! Filched her fruit, pinched her pepper... Shocking.
Co-op will tell us they lack storage space. I would point them at the vacant business units in town. They either don't know what they are doing, or don't give a hoot.

But only if they have any in stock.
