Waitrose Wake-Up

Waitrose Belgravia respond to ‘The Steeple Times’s’ expose of their not selling Royal British Legion poppies and allow them into their store

 

After The Steeple Times reported on various high street retailers in Belgravia, Chelsea, Fulham and Knightsbridge not selling Royal British Legion poppies, our story went viral.

 

Shared on Twitter by countless individuals – including the radio and television presenter Matthew Wright – we can now report that Waitrose Belgravia (the store where our editor was told: “We do not condone war so do not sell poppies. It is against our company policy.”) have caved in.

 

In a tweet received Saturday, the firm announced:

 

“We had a poppy seller at the shop yesterday who will be returning Monday. We looked after her with a hot drink and treated her to lunch and are really looking forward to seeing her again next week – she did a fab job on a brisk autumn day!”

 

Aside from their rightful climb down, we would suggest Waitrose Belgravia make up for their transgression with a more substantial gesture. We call upon the store’s management to give a donation to the Royal British Legion’s poppy appeal and we also urge our readers to buy a poppy and wear it with pride.

  1. You always choose the wrong causes Steeple. You have wrongly ruined the name of an innocent gentleman and star Rolf Harris and now you must pay. Rolf Harris is innocent and it is time that you accepted this fact and apologized. ROLF HARRIS IS INNOCENT, CLEAR HIS NAME.

    • Rolf Harris is a paedophile so why should a an idiot like you ask for hmi to be declared innocent? The sooner he shuffles off his mortal coil the better. He has only himself to blame and nobody else

  2. My friend Matthew Steeples does it again. Well done bro and as for Rolf Harris is innocent are you fucking sure mate? Both my grandfathers defended our great nation and you dare defend that NONCE Rolf Harris! Are you a parent mate as I am and I read that filth of a justification letter he wrote to one of his daughters friends fathers he was molesting as a horrific and weak attempt to justify his perverted sex acts! Belt up and shut up your as bad as Rolf and Jimmy Saville!!! Again huge plaudits to my dearest friend Matthew! x

  3. Curious this claim from Waitrose that it is against company policy, must be local manager’s decision. Our branch at Berkhamsted had three poppy sellers and they were joined at one stage by a curious cat!

  4. Boom! Well done Matthew for bringing true transparency for the most pathetic response not to sell poppies. Waitrose Belgravia had better make a generous contribution out of their coffers! x
