All shops near Brighton seem empty :(

I've organised a search party for Lancashire/ North Yorkshire.

Yes, inspected the Camberley store on Sunday. Guildford is also out (which is a bit annoying as when I was in there a couple of weeks ago they had loads of the Warre in a central offer position but when I enquired whether they were on offer I was told 'no'- clearly they were readying them for sell off).

Fortunately, I have managed to relieve the Reading store of its last 4 bottles of the Warre (and I had to ask as the spaces on the shelves were empty). Sent a colleague round to the nearby Woodley store last night to no avail.

Bristol Cribbs Causeway is now out of 2007 M&S Vintage, might still have a few bottles of Warre left as I couldn't manage everything they had!

Milton Keynes had some (eight bottles) Royal Palace 2002 coheita left @ £6 when I walked out of the store yesterday. They had no Vintage Port or Cavadinha left.

Have sent out emissaries (aka work colleagues) to scour the interior and to not return until they are successful!

On a different note Sainsbury’s have the 2003 TTD at £12 and the GM2005 at £16.80-both ‘to clear ‘.

The emissaries are beginning to report back; two bottles of the Warre (perhaps the last of the species in the South) have been located and collected in Poole. I fear they all maybe EW (extinct in the wild) very shortly.

Thought I would register on this forum to thank whoever posted the tip around the M&S deal. I managed to pick up the last 6 bottles of the vintage port on the shelves at the Brixton M&S on my way home Friday. I will keep an eye out for more.

I only started drinking Port last year when I got hold 12 bottles of Grahams Quinta dos Malvedos that had been bought for my birth, that had been hidden away in Northern Ireland for me. Despite having no idea where or how they had been stored (had been given to my aunt's, friend's, granddad's dog etc to store), the bottle I had last Xmas was delicious, and I have been slowly accumulating more bottles since (Mainly LBVs, and the odd cheap vintage port I come across). Not sure where I will store my increasing collection in my small London flat, but good problem to have.

You are welcome Will! Glad it helped you get some decent VP/SQVP for your collection.

Cribbs Causeway in Bristol had stock come back in and I've cleaned them back out again. 7 more bottles and now I think that might be it for me on the M&S 2007 VP front. Sadly no Warre's, but I probably have enough (I know, I know, "define enough") of those to keep me happy.

Yes, odd that- it appears to be very localised as the GM was at the full price at two other stores.
