    I worked in Morrisons as a teenager and Ken was always popping into Victoria, re-arranging shelves, talking to staff and customers. Most were scared sh@@less of him mind, but he was a presence that couldn't be ignored and it made the business feel more in touch.

    Can't wait for the award winning series by @Fordy117@Fordy117 Rate my Supermarket-where members of the public invite him to review their local supermarket .

    That will be closely followed up with Rate my Car wash-manual and automatic.

    Should give Line of Duty a run for the audience numbers.

    Absolutely, catergorically the worst is Victoria at Thornton Rd. You might as well be shopping in Slovakia when you look at what they stock

    Gotta cater for the locals.
    I was born and bred in BD3 but for love nor money I can’t find anywhere there now to get a pint and a bacon sarni.

    Thornbury, then Victoria and the 5 Lane Ends. Biggest problem with 5 Lane Ends is stuff constantly changes and think that is because they try new stuff there all the time

    Poor stock levels with products out of stock and empty shelves coupled with rising prices mean there are much better options when shopping

    As yourself born and bred in BD3 I rarely go near BD3 but the last time I did as you say the pubs I used to frequent are no longer selling beer if there still standing, in fact I'm not sure from the Junction at the bottom of Gain Lane to the Juntion at Vicar Land all the pubs are gone, similar with the pubs on Leeds Old Road/Barkerend Road are still in business.

    We've been getting our Morrisons delivered since the day they started deliveries but your choice of goods is restricted so at times we still have to pop into Morrison’s Mayo Avenue which is still a well stocked supermarket and not a bad supermarket although it's been there a while.

    First job back in 89 at Bolton Junction before it closed. On the fresh foods (chilled)... Still remember the FIFO system... Use it to this day subliminally in my fridge!

    You are correct, from Thornbury roundabout all the way into town either via Leeds Rd or Barkerend Rd there isn’t a single pub left open. Same with Manchester Road.
    Sad really! But the writing was on the wall as early as the late 70’s.

    Not been around there for a few years but the last time I think the 147 snooker bar was just hanging in there. Has that gone now?
