EUROPEAN SHOPS: Shop is not filthy at all

Have your say

Mary Wilson says the European’supermarket near the police station “should be closed down – it looks filthy” (Guardian Letters, February 28). I was surprised: I pass it often and hadn’t noticed.

I promptly went to take another look. Result: it is perfectly tidy outside and a model of cleanliness and good display inside, with friendly staff and good stock. It is not the only one with such good standards.

Incidentally, I notice that there now seems to be a common assumption that all European immigrants are Polish. Does that suggest that geography in the letters column has now become as weak as history?
