Waitrose customers have furious to boycott a store over its plan to ditch china plates and replace them with paper crockery. Clients of a branch of the general store in Chichester, West Sussex, have apparently complained to administration in what has been named the most middle class row ever.
As though that wasn’t sufficiently horrifying, the branch additionally picked to swap out its couches for wooden seats.
The issues all started when the bistro moved from inside the Waitrose grocery store to the adjacent building, which previously housed a Costa espresso.
Because of reasons of convenience, the café started to serve its hot beverages in paper glasses and replaced its “shocking” couches with simple to-clean plastic seats.
A cafe staff part said that a dishwasher would need to be introduced at the new site before china mugs could be used.
A Waitrose representative said: ‘The criticism of our clients is importent to us and the remarks we have gotten will shape any future arrangement.’
