ACROSS THE ROAD FAE DITT – A man from Scalloway is set to visit the Co-op supermarket in Lerwick for the first time in nearly a decade this week because Tesco looks set to run out of Brussel sprouts.
The Sea Road supermarket’s shelves are likely to go empty in the lead-up to Christmas as ferries look set to be affected by the windy weather.
John Peterson, from Scalloway, has expressed his anger at having to visit the Co-op later this week, despite shopping there all the time in the 2000s.
The carpenter said he buys “everything” from Tesco – even air and the will to live.
A source said that Co-op staff are set to greet Peterson with a ‘welcome back’ banner when he arrives in the supermarket.
