Angel Waitrose due to open 2 April

When we lost our local Woolworths last summer, we didn’t know then they would all be going.

I was sceptical about the plan to replace our busy Woolworths. It was one of only two in Islington, the other all the way up at the Archway (it’s also now closed of course); and we already had 2 Waitroses, one at Nags Head and one on Whitecross Street near Old Street.

The only comfort is that at least our Woolies workers beat the others to the front of the job centre queue 😦

It’s not as if we got an instant replacement. Waitrose was supposed to open in October last year. It’s still nto happened. But finally there is some activity behind the hoardings, and the latest word is that the new store will open on 2nd April.
