So here we are, nearly three years later and the store is open.
An ancient road has been built over, some public parkland has been built over and some nice old trees have been uprooted.
Still, it was all worth it in order to get a large supermarket on Yardley's doorstep.

After the dust settled I gave it a try.
It was marvellous, plenty of space and all nice and new and clean and shiny.
The choices of foods was vast and the quality was good.

Unfortunately, since then it has gone downhill rather noticeably.
Some of the staff are lazy and ignorant, the aisles are constantly blocked by empty boxes, part empty bogies, damaged goods and litter. Even the cleaner sweeps around things rather than pick them up.
The staff have loud chats on various corners and can even be heard to swear.
The fresh food is mostly not very fresh, of poor quality and has very short use by dates.

The rest of the centre is still not fully populated by other shops and charity collectors can outnumber customers at times.

Then Morrisons opened a new store just down the road, so for shoppers with cars there was a shiny new alternative.

After the dust settled I gave it a try.
