Ah.....What Have We Here?

Binley Shopping Centre, Brandon Road
First of many buildings to house Marks & Spencers, Asda Home ('Walmart' in USA parlance) and a Boots too (so the local gossip reports).  Construction is well under way.  Photograph below was taken 7th April.

PS  I am including a few extra snaps of the whole site for someone far, far away in Oz.

Looking towards TGI Fridays
Towards Morrisons



I like the stark lines against that clear blue sky. Asda Home = Walmart is brilliant! (Not sure there's US analogy for M&P - maybe a very good Target:).

Lulu (as our Pasadena friend calls you), here's the story - Walmart actually bought Asda grocery stores over here. Really did a lot to bring UK prices down BUT they didn't go far enough and stock my favorite American treats :(. Target another favorite US store of mine supplies clothing to Tescos (rival to Asda). Have a good day!
