WHO ARE THEY? Waitrose was founded by Wallace Waite, Arthur Rose and David Taylor who opened their small grocery store at 263 Acton Hill in West London in 1904. After the acquisition by the John Lewis Partnership of the Waitrose business in 1937, they became the food shops of the John Lewis group...

“Waitrose vs White Rose”

I'm not often called “sir”, except by policemen in their special ‘sarcastic’ voice. So it was a novelty to be thus politely addressed by a charming checkout assistant, merely asking whether I needed help packing my bags. As you may have guessed, I wasn’t in Netto, but in Waitrose, purveyors of...

UPDATE I'm now living in Cornwall - Oh, how I miss Waitrose and John Lewis!!!! INTRODUCTION I live mid-way between Princes Risborough, Buckinghamshire and Thame, Oxfordshire. A medium-sized Tesco store serves P. Risboro' and a Waitrose serves Thame. Waitrose, Thame wins any comparison between the...

Quality, The staff are happy and friendly.

Stores in certain areas are few and far between

I have always loved Waitrose no matter how many people will call me a snob.... I will always continue to shop there. I shall now explain why.... Who are they: Waitrose started out as a small Green Grocer in Acton, Central London. It was founded in 1904 by Arthur Rose and Wallace Waite and David...

Good quality.

Just a little too far to get to.

Up until recently, I had this image of Waitrose being quite an upmarket and snobby store - until I paid a few visits to my local one. Well, I say local but it is in Saltash which is actually situated a couple of miles away from Plymouth. Waitrose is a part of the John Lewis family, which I know...

High quality; good fresh produce

Some items are expensive

Waitrose supermarket was originally confined to the south of England, but more recently stores have opened in Buxton, Wilmslow, Sandbach, Durham and Hexham as well as four in the West Midlands and two in Edinburgh. My experience of Waitrose is based mainly on the stores in Havant and Southsea...

A bit pricey

For once I have written a positive review-just in time for Christmas! We have just been Christmas shopping to Waitrose. We normally have our shopping delivered by Waitrose but they were all booked up so we ventured in store instead. The Waitrose Difference: Waitrose is different to most...

Well laid out, nice staff, good range

Can be pricey, small car parking spaces

We people in the west of Scotland have always been somewhat deprived when it comes to access to a Waitrose. Edinburgh have had one for ages but we have only just been lucky enough to have one opened nearby. Having already done my weekly shop, I decided to take an amble round to see what it had to...

More expensive than average supermarkets

Yesterday, I went shopping at Waitrose (in Buxton, Derbyshire) and came out with one solitary bag of shopping, having spent over £25! That's not even 'shopping' in the everyday sense, no staples or essentials like bread, milk, butter etc - this was entirely a luxury shop full of puddings, ready...

“Worth waiting for”

published 16/02/2001

Vegetarian food clearly labelled

Expensive

When waitrose originally decided to build a store in my local area, I have to admitt that along with the majority of the population, I wasn't very impressed with their choice of store location- in the town's only decently sized car-park. However, eventually they were allowed to build the store...

There are many things I love about Waitrose, even the advertising. - The account card. This can be used In John Lewis and Waitrose stores and account details can be accessed through www.johnlewis.com or www.waitrose.com. Both sites are good as they are easy to use and very clear. The account card...

Food shopping can be a nasty experience - after bashing into half a dozen trolleys in search of all your groceries only to find half of them out of stock you have to queue for half an hour and the check out girl doesn't give you chance to bag your shopping before the next customer starts. Have...

convenient, great staff

Expensive, poor range

The nearest Waitrose to me is the one in Dorchester. Dorchester is a bit of a dump and does not have very good shops, despite being the county town, the town itself is a wee bit behind the times. The Waitrose store is a medium sized supermarket, and can be less than adventurous when it comes to...

good quality, uncrowded

can be expensive

The main reason that I prefer Waitrose over other supermarkets is the fact that it seems a lot less busy. Even when the car park is full to capacity there is still plenty of room to walk around the store without being bashed by other peoples trolleys. The queues are usually pretty small too...

user-friendly site, excellent customer service

some items expensive, not as much variety as some

Now, I am aware that many men absolutely hate grocery shopping and my hubby Sam is no different. I have tried everything..... We live just outside a little village about 10 miles from our nearest superstore and our local village shop isn't within walking distance. We both work in the town nearest...
