DAA Residential
Whats in Wapping



We included Waitrose in the pilot June launch for information to help new residents and those thinking of moving to Wapping.

After the lively discussions about Waitrose Wapping opening hours during June the shop has been added to the community section of the site: opening hours aside, Waitrose has become part of the community and supports local good causes each month, so we hope they’ll take the opportunity to respond to residents comments.

[Original June Article]

Staff are helpful and the queues never too bad, although weekday lunchtimes can get busy.  Great quality, variety and a pleasant place to shop.

Open 7 days a week including most public holidays, but check the website which is kept up to date.

Don’t forget about the local shops in Wapping

If you’re new to the area and need a quick one-stop-shop, this is a good bet.

There’s a free car park undeneath and the 100 Bus stops outside, which can be very useful if you find you’ve got more bags than arms!

    Guess what!  Waitrose say that they have listened to public opinion and have changed their hours.  These are now as follows:

    7.30 AM – 10 PM Monday through Friday;
    8 AM to 9 PM Saturday
    11.00 – 5 PM Sunday (think this is the same as previously)

    It’s taken a while but well done – so I hope that everyone who wanted the change will take advantage of it.

    Asked Waitrose for an update on Twitter – they confirmed they are continuing to look into extended opening hours but have no update at the moment

    ‘Thank you for your interest in our St Katharine Docks store and apologies for the delayed response while we looked into this for you. We are currently exploring the possibility of opening the branch at the earlier time of 7.30am following feedback from our customers, including yourselves. As you will appreciate though any such change requires a number of legal and logistical issues to be addressed, but first and foremost we need to fully consider our neighbours. We should make you aware at this point that we are not permitted to open before 7am or after 10pm and therefore the earliest we would open is 7.30am. We will of course ensure we keep you updated and in the meantime would like to thank you for your loyal custom.’
