Shell Petrol Station - Wilbraham Road

Postby bufty1 » Mon Jun 20, 2011 8:49 pm

Just heard that Morrisons have just acquired the Shell Petrol Station by their store. Probably mean slightly lower fuel prices in the area and actually being able to use your petrol voucher if you spend over £40.....

Nooooooooo - don't let them shift Chorlton Trade Paints! I only just discovered it! (Well, about a year ago...)

Yes, Morrison's acquired the Albany Trading Estate some time ago. Apparently they are waiting to see what impact the Tram has on business before deciding on whether to build a new store on the Estate or to extend the current one and add parking.

Yep, anyone can go in and they have a colour mixing machine and will match other colours e.g. Farrow & Ball for a fraction of the cost. Plus they are very friendly and reasonably priced. I hope they have a long lease...

Chorlton trade paints will mix you a little match pot of any colour you like too, including the fancy heritage ones at ordinary prices, and will offer you a nice big bit of free lining paper to try it out on. They remain good humoured on the fourth or fifth dithery visit. I may lie down in front of the demolition truck if Morrisons try to close them down.

And that's before we start on Forest Foods which of course plays a vital part in the lives of us Chorlton friends of the mung bean.

Look after them themselves?

Not clog up Albany with their Chelsea tractors?

Let them run riot around the shops of chorlton like they usually do! Oh look at Tarquin, isn't he so funny, as the little brat pulls all the leaflets out of the bank leaflet stand!

Chorlton kids will grow up to be horrible adults I'm sure!

Aye, Tarquin seems a bit too Home Counties for Chorlton.

Willow, Alba, Loula or India for a girl. Perhaps Sage, Griffin or Dickon for a boy.

Under no circumstances James or Samantha or John or Ruth.

I've heard the names Toby, Saffron, Benedict, Bailey and Isaac called out in Chorlton's shops by agitated parents.

Because it's got a dick on, presumably?

Wonder why no-one has a girl called Twaton?
