Question - Why does the supporters shop never seem to be open? there is always a note saying go to the office or go upstairs or go down the road. Should it be so taxing to spend money in the shop? can they not have advertised opening hours? Perhaps they just don’t need the support of fans

The club shop is open Monday to Saturday and Sunday on match day you just go to the office door which is joined onto the shop

I go for my DVD two days after each game whatever day it is played and I haven't failed to get one. (A Friday game would have to be three days.)

The shop is run by volunteers and some of them have other jobs to go to. If the shop is shut then just go into the office next door were they will be happy to help you!!!

I appreciate the comment about volunteers (who do a great job) however over the years since the shop returned to the ground I have never found the doors open on a weekday. It's pointless having level access to the shop when you are directed to the office and then have to negotiate the step and squeeze into the shop via the back of the counter or attempt to grab someone’s attention and then wait for the shop to be opened. How many other clubs operate this way? surely it would be better to organise the volunteers on set days and open the shop up to the public even if only for an hour but advertise the fact the shop is open.

If they did it as you suggest open it for an hour and advertise it, then someone is going to miss out due to other commitments eg: work. By doing it the way they do then you can pop along anytime knowing you can get served. To be honest I've never had a problem with this option, and if mobility is a problem yes it can be a bind waiting for someone to open the doors, but in my opinion that's a small price to pay
