A Plumb Note

Central Plumbing Supplies, on the corner of Brinkley Road, has taken the curious decision to shut at 12.30 every Saturday 'because of the roadworks' on Central Road - which both  perplexed and disappointed me when I turned up there at 1 o'clock on Saturday, having walked past Worcester Park's other retailers who all seemed to be going about their business as usual.

It was disappointing too for the other couple who arrived at the shop a few seconds after me and were similarly turned away by the hand written sign in the window.

Fortunately I have never found that the roadworks cause any traffic problems on a Saturday, which meant I was able to breeze out of Worcester Park and take my cold hard cash to B&Q who were most definitely open for business.

Where the other couple took their custom I shall never know, but I can't help wondering if this particular retailer hasn't scored a bit of an own goal.
