Spelling error

First published in Letters

Has anyone noticed the boards around the new shopping centre informing us which shops are coming?

Look carefully.

Some of the store names are mis-spelt – Sainsbury’s looks like Sambury’s. The names on the list are correct though.

Does anyone know why they’ve done this?

It is fairly obvious. These are place-holder names for shops which are intended to look like real brands but those companies have not actually signed up yet. The "Sambury's" store is where the convenience store will be. It has just not been announced yet which operator will operate it.
