Since the boycott began the supporters of this ‘revolution’ have regularly posted anecdotal confirmation of low custom at their local Countdown stores – reporting empty car parks and third party information from suppliers and employees who have allegedly confirmed a definite drop in numbers through the doors.
Conversely, reports of ‘business as usual’ are met with derision and seemingly a source of great personal offense.
No one has moaned about too many people shopping at Countdown recently, this last post was from a couple of weeks ago on the boycott page:
As long predicted people are doing their own thing and continuing to shop at Countdown supermarkets.
Two months on, the storm in a teacup seems to be blowing over.
