I wonder how many Wiganers will go in and ask for a can of Mr Sheen? :-)

I am a Wiganer, left for the USA 32 years ago. All of these years I have missed Wigan, now though, I am beginning to wonder if I would even recognize it if I were to come back. Wigan will always be home, it is sad though to see it change so much and in my opinion, not for the better.

I'll try anything once, might be worth a look and see what delicacies they stock.I got to admit I do miss German foods since moving back to Wigan, so maybe polish can tempty me.......How the piggin hell do you pronounce the shop name though?!

The Polish brew some good beers, worth trying some of them. Names like Lech, Tsikie and Zywiec (Think i've spelt them correctly)

Polish beer in all the supermarkets and most pubs now - great stuff as well! I'm all for Wigan becoming a more multi cultural town.

Budweiser originates from Czechoslovakia (well, it's next to Poland!) and it's far nicer tasting than the American 'copy'.

It's not 'Tsikie', but 'Tyskie'.
