Apologies if my original message sounded accusatory.
However, I think you may have some of you data a little confused - 263 Acton Hill was their first shop (later expanded into 265 and 267), and from the data contained on Waitrose's own history site (http://www.waitrosememorystore.org.uk), it would seem that it was their only store until after Mr Taylor left the business and it was renamed Waitrose. After this, the expansion appears to have occurred.

Of course, this is not saying that they didn't also expand into 190 Acton Lane, Park Royal, as well as into 190 Acton Lane, W4 - but I cannot find anything in their site to show this.

John Lewis's connection to the business of course didn't start until after they bought Waitrose in 1937.
