Whilst your neighbours bring home Sainsbury's and Tesco bags from their weekly shop on a Saturday afternoon, confuse them by going a little bit further for some quality products from booths that they have never heard of!

Knutsford is my favourite with a large Bakery with delicious cakes. No small children can go round poking your unwrapped bread and cakes as it is all displayed behind a glass counter. It has a fish counter, butcher, rotisserie, florist, cafe and full deli and is the largest and most posh booths i have ever been in. I even saw Vikram from Coronation St once buying his bacofoil! I first heard of booths on my trip to Windermere where there is no bakery but a tea shop where the most delicious light snacks are served.

Clitheroe is not bad. It doesn't have a complete bakery although it still sells fresh and warm bread.
It has no cafe but it has a deli and butcher.

Settle has everything but an in store bakery

One of the Penwortham stores is the size of my dining room and has no facilities at all hovever it has the basics. I have never been to the other one but anyone who has can write it in the comments...

Ilkley has most things.

Yesterday i went to carnforth Booths and was not too impressed. Its a bit like clitheroe without a bakery.

I have heared that Garstang is similar to clitheroe but i havent been.

Kendal is a large version of the small penwortham store

Prices and selection within each shop varies.

Manchester is CRYING out for a booths to replace that horrible morrisons in eccles!

I will build it for them if they ask me! thanks and if you can fill in on the comments page, the stores i have not mentioned i would be grateful!!! bye

Great description - I used to work at Booths. I think the reason the facilities (bakery, cafe etc) varies by store is that they work out what extras they can include based on the sze of each individual store. Liked your examples from the different branches.

There's one up in Windermere somewhere that always had new chocolate you couldn't get elsewhere - but was a bit of a trek just for that...
