A supermarket price war is brewing. Park 'N Shop is taking on Marks & Spencer and Oliver's next month with a range of Waitrose products from Britain. The idea, the supermarket says, is to broaden its attraction to its 'international customers' in Hong Kong. The Waitrose range, which will be in 20 stores by the middle of next month, features 108 products including ready meals such as chicken korma, vegetable lasagne, spinach and carrot pilau, five cheese tortelloni, bread and butter pudding, and sticky ginger sponge. Probably not forgetting that Marks & Spencer was forced to close its ready-meal section a few years ago because no one was buying, Park 'N Shop backs up its ready-to-eat selection with upmarket dry goods such as garlic breadsticks, rich tea biscuits, treacle cookies and various luxury breakfast cereals. There is also an entire Waitrose chocolate and sweets selection, fruits, jams, canned goods and a trendy choice of condiments, including lemon sauce with ginger, redcurrant jelly with port, and apricot ginger and garlic chutney. Waitrose is bold about appropriating Italian favourites, such as pasta sauces, Italian sliced artichoke hearts, and mixed peppers, for its products. Prices will be 10 to 15 per cent lower than similar items sold at Marks & Spencer and Oliver's. W is for wine W's Group owner Wilson Kwok's wine club, W's Oeno, is finally up and running, with a diary of wine dinners, discounts and other special offers.
