Waitrose is going right down in my estimation.
They have just introduced a minimum spend of £10 to park in the car park for a maximum of 2 hours after which it is an automatic fine of £70.
You cannot even pay to park anymore if you want to just pop in for a couple of things.
I hope this hits them where it hurts. The car park was half empty the other day.

I agree that you had to keep an eye on what you had on 'my picks' and what Waitrose have on offer to make the really good savings.

I agree that they have started doing this, in my local Waitrose people park there and go into town for hours so genuine customers have nowhere to park. 2 hours is more than enough to do a shop, there is no need to spend more than 2 hours in one grocery shop.
I do, however agree with you about the £10 spend, they should lower that as some people just want milk or lunch or a couple of bits.

The thing is though that when Waitrose came to our town the car park was already there and served the high street.
It was an issue raised by many residents who were assured that everyone would still be able to park there.
Until recently you could park there and pay or free to Waitrose customers if you spent £5.
Now unless you shop in Waitrose and spend £10 you cannot park there at all. This will mean it will be very difficult to park in the high street to shop elsewhere.
This will mean that some like myself will not shop locally as much and will go where it is easy to park.
Also many people used to park there in the evening to go the restaurants but the cameras will operate 24/7.
This has got to have an effect on the whole high street.
