The end of an era!
Presumably Greggs will pick up some, but others will be gone.
Aulds will keep going, selling inventory to Scotmid and other small shops, but no longer will one be able to "go to Aulds", which is a shame as I do so (well, did so) every time I was back in Greenock.
Aye, but you're only paying for nostalgia, not a decent feed. If you charge nearly £2 for a microwaved pie that the Norseman would be embarrassed to serve then you deserve to Rangers it.
When Greggs, Costa and the like started hitting the High Street, Aulds just sat and watched. They've nobody to blame but themselves.
Indeed. Aulds' savour products are dated, greasy, over-priced s***e. Their inventory products aren't exactly untouchable either, 4 of their rolls in my local shop cost £1.44 before they switched to Mortons. 36p a roll simply is not competitive.
Greggs are far superior to Aulds. They serve tastier products, served out of an oven rather than a microwave, they open earlier and they have a far more varied menu. All this at a better price. While economies of scale and the like play a part in that, I also think there was an air of complacency and superiority within Aulds that has proven to be their demise.
