Inside the new SR Norwich shop?

I went there earlier today, and wqas damn impressed! My bro was plodding around the store in his brand-spanking new uniform, black trousers and a grey shirt with Special Reserve embroided in large red letters.

I had to quietly snigger at the fact that, even though it is only the first day, some of the staff weren't sure what to do.

I grabbed myself a copy of The Matrix on DVD as a free gift for five reddies, but there was no sign of the goodie bags mentioned on the part of SR's website which talks about the opening of the shop.

And there was one particular thing which caught my eye, and couldn't be missed:
Outside the shop, on a little section of pavement, so that it was just higher than the rest of the cars . . . was a shiny, multicoloured car in all its glory covered in logo's like GetDotted, Freeola and Special Reserve. Indeed, it was Tonty's! And my bro sahook his hand! He'll be quick washing his hands when he gets home then!

Anyway, sorry about that. I was really excited about it and had to share it with you. Robin is mildly jealos but hey, it's open every day, not just for the grand opening. You wouldn't miss much by going on another day.

Yeah, but then, they might have kept the goodie bags hidden and only handed them over when you spent 5. I didn't spend any money, just got myself a free gift.

I didn't see him. I saw his car, but not him. My brother has met him though! That's what I was referring to in the 5th paragraph.

I over slept and missed the train :(

But as you say, there is nothing really special about it, just the free gift :P which you didn't get anyways :(
