I can't wait for Westfield, Stratford to open!


Westfield, Stratford (or Stratfield as I shall be calling it henceforth just because I can) is opening in six days and I am excited... Oh yes, forget the closeness to the Olympic Park (didn't get any tickets so what do I care) and look to the fact that this uber-shopping paradise will be much easier for me to get to than the Shepherd's Bush version and all well in time for Christmas shopping...

I'm not going for the official opening, am not fussed if I see Nicole Scherzinger cut a ribbon and sing a song if I'm honest and I expect it to be absolutely packed. No I'm planning on timing it just right to miss the pre-Christmas crowds and the post-opening hordes and hit the stores sometime around mid-October.

Why am I going? Because there will be over 300 stores and lots of places to eat so I shall go for the day. And they are including lots of my favourite stores - John Lewis, Marks & Spencer plus Reiss, Topshop, Primark, Hollister, Uniqlo - we'll all be happy in my house. I used to live in Leytonstone and then Walthamstow. Stratford was a tube station and little else - it's about time the East End became a destination in this way and I for one, although I didn't get tickets (bitter, moi?) am happy we are regenerating this part of London.
