Winton (161): Opening

Waitrose Winton officially opened on March 21st 1978, as the sixty-sixth store to open.

With almost 13,500 sq ft of selling space, Winton was one of the larger Waitrose branches of its time. Mr T A Jordan opened the store with eighty full and part time partners.

There is a designated Waitrose car park that stretches from above ground to underground, the first of its kind in 1978, which therefore came with its problems. A pump was then installed to make sure it never flooded when it rained. (As reported in the Partnerships in-house magazine, The Gazette, 25/03/78).

Services and facilities available at Winton include: flower and gift wrapping and a patisserie and bakery counter.

Address: 345 Wimborne Road, Winton, Bournemouth, Dorset, BH9 2AD
