A Hampshire rant about Oddbins
George Egglestone, Southsea, Hampshire: Hello Jancis! I note your recent news about Oddbins . I live in Southsea, a desert for a decent wine shop, apart from our wonderful local Waitrose, here and in nearby Waterlooville. The Waterlooville Waitrose wine man, John, has great knowledge and enthusiasm for wine and deserves a mention beyond his parish. And yet I have noticed this week that a new shop refit, almost directly opposite our Southsea Waitrose, is going to be an Oddbins! I thought Oddbins were downsizing. Southampton gone! Stratford upon Avon gone! Nearest one to me is good old Emsworth. Sorry, just a bit of a rant!...
