Oddbins My Favourite Wine Emporium
Went into Odbins today and they didnt have my wine of choice , given the "current situation" . Was shocked to hear they were in administration. Oddbins have long been my shop of choice for alcohol as they know their stuff and you can usually get what you want. They are percieved as maybe being a bit snooty but they are anything but , being friendly , knowledgeable and the only place I know where you can get a decent bottle of wine for less than a fiver (admittedly this range is small but what do you expect).
The problem is that supermarkets and big brands do cut price deals that eventually force smaller traders out of business/ Due you really want your only choice for everything to be between Tesco and Asda?
