I heard on the Oxted grapevine the other day that a new Sainsburys local is going to open on the high street. On Monday, James wandered over to J H Lorimers to buy some paint only to discover that they were in the process of moving across the road to where the card shop 'Something Special' used to be; an interesting choice because it's a much smaller building. We reckon the new Sainburys must have paid off Lorimers to shift premises, so that they can nab the bigger building! It's a shame actually because they now only stock half the things they did before, and have completely done away with their toys section, and modelling paints! Noo! I'm going to have to go to Croydon for those now! What they actually appear to have done is merged the two shops together, so now its pretty much the same as Sussex stationers, only without the books. I just hope this isn't a sign of Oxted changing in the same way that Reigate did, into a giant eatery. Hmm.. oh well, it might be nice to have a Sainsburys down the road I guess!
