Waitrose North Watford in the 1960s

It is hard to believe this was once the stalls of a cinema - it looks like so many other supermarkets of its time.  Plenty of advertising, tins piled high, a fresh meat counter at the rear and even state of the art Sweda tills to speed customers through the store.  This picture must have been taken near Christmas with a smiling Santa waving from the ceiling!  With coffee at 1/9 and PG Tips only 1/6 there's only one thing missing - where are the staff?
