The new EasyFoodstore has already shut. Sort of.
Did you read about it? Earlier this week, the Easy group made famous by EasyJet and founded by Sir Stelios Haji-Ioannou, opened a new venture: EasyFoodstore. The idea was to take on the bargain supermarkets Lidl and Aldi and everything in store was priced at 25p.
But the shop located in Park Royal, London has already closed, for the time being, because it has run out of stock.
A spokesperson said: “The level of interest has been completely overwhelming. The last people through the door today had travelled up from Canterbury. We anticipated we had enough stock to last a couple of weeks but it has just gone in a day and a half.”
Sounds to me like they could probably put their prices up.
