Supermarket 'swaps salad for booze' for festival-goers

A supermarket in Reading has reportedly filled its salad aisles with alcohol ahead of an expected onslaught of festival-goers this weekend.

A local branch of Tesco is ready for a deluge of revellers, as store managers have created a special 'Festival Shop' that appears to have replaced part of the vegetable isles.

Reading resident Timothy Jeffcoat told the Independent that salad baskets have been filled with Jagermeister and potato boxes are now home to bottles of vodka.

“The store is chaos during the festival, and if it’s wet, it gets really trashed too,” he said.
