Several people have been complaining about this, and there's been various rumours about the possibility of compensation. I've not really been one of these - apart from the aforementioned resurfacing, I've generally ignored the works. Anyway, a letter arrived from the local councillor today with news. It seems that the supermarket have decided to offer compensation... on the order of £20.
I've got mixed feelings over this. On the one hand, I've never been a fan of the whole US compensation culture that's slowly taking over the world (which is why I've said very little myself). On the other hand, it's free money for shiny stuff, though whether or not I even consider it depends on what strings are attached.
But on the third hand... twenty pounds? Seriously? Presented as a goodwill gesture or a "look shiny new supermarket have some freebies" type thing, it feels about right. But when presented as compensation I'd have expected a bit more.
