If you dont want to upset the Marble Arch guys, I would suggest the Sainsbury on Berkley St, just off Piccadilly., nice smooth floors. :evil:

It's got to be the one where you know there is going to be a problem, i.e. Marble Arch. Also, if you get into the shop you have to behave in a thoroughly respectable manner to not give them any valid reason to keep skaters out. Take the high ground no whizzing around and alarming the other shoppers. Potter round at walking pac and look round the corners, stop and give way to foot bound shoppers be polite,....if you can't do this please don't take part as it will ruin the effect and will even be detrimental. We need a good name and not re-enforce the opinion that we are a bunch of knobheads up to no good.

I have only shopped there on skates once and had no problem but it was before this banning thing came about. I'd like to be a part of it but I'll be away so good luck. If you can get some media coverage that would just be too good.

BTW I happen to agree with banning some skaters on the grounds that they are not able to conduct themselves safely or with consideration for other customers and you can't expect a non-skater to make a valid judgement on who is and isn't safe so a blanket ban is easier from their perspective. So how about offering this as a compromise position - Get them to clarify their position that they accept that there are skaters that would be safe but they are not able to discriminate between them, then offer them free tuition to a basic level so they can better discern what is and isn't safe and then they can allow individuals back in or not based on valid judgement.

Oh dear...you'd better keep StevieB away from any fine young fillies on the checkouts then because he most certainly won't be respectable! :P

Best thing to do is to use their names. They really love it.
"Hey, Good morning Kate. How are you today?" With a big smile and here you go you are sorted.


Except last time I was buying stuff for BBQ with Kalil and I used her name: "Hy, good morning George, How ar................GEORGE!!! I think you've mixed your shirt with your collegue darling!!!" :? :? :?

There was a girl who worked in McDs opposite my last companies office whose name was Sukdeep. Didn't take long before she got her name badge changed to Suk though, for some reason.

did she have very small breasts and a bulge in her trousers? if so you may have been confusing men and women.

Did anyone do this?? I tried to go into Sainsbury on bank holiday and I was chased out by the security..
I tried to tell him I just wanna grab a drink...
I ended up grabbing it off a convenient store nearby.

I did ask my mate who asked in two of the stores he works at and they had no idea what he was on about?

Maybe it's just the Central London stores that have them???

I went into the Marble Arch branch of Sainsbury's over the weekend and I saw someone skate in right past the Security guard, amble round the shop for a bit, buy some stuff (ducking under the barrier because there wasn't a queue) and then skate out (pretty fast) right past the security guard again.

If it's one skater they tend to ignore it, it just depends how their feeling & who's guarding.
we're only realy doing this for a bit of fun, although I admit it probably wouldn't help our popularity much.
