Pinner is our local as well , I think they let me in as we live here although I do get some funny looks sometime if I pop in without my hair done

I pressed for help and waited and waited and waited some more then stomped over to the basket only till and paid.
I remember when M and S had enough staff and they are no cheaper now than they were then!

On a high note the cherries I bought were gorgeous tho. And I recommend the coronation potato salad.

Of course had I only bought what I went for I would have been well able to pay cash in the first place. There's a moral there somewhere!

PS and I forgot to use my Sparks card again.
I usually have about 20p in my purse just always forget to get cash out !
