Hmmmm . . . doesn't seem likely to me. Do you think he'll turn up?

Good news for Nespresso coffee fans and George Clooney - the Swiss brand is opening a store in Reading.

This summer, the caffeine capsule giants will be taking over a 188 sqm unit in The Oracle alongside Apple, Victoria's Secret and Zara.

The aim of the store is to cater more to customers' individual preferences by increasing convenience, choice and availability for shoppers.

Customers will be able to get their hands on the full range of coffee machines, large assortment of capsules and Nespresso accessories.

The face of Nespresso George Clooney lives down the road in Sonning with wife Amal, although it's unlikely he'll pop into the store to stock up.

But he did take time to surprise an 87-year-old on her birthday at a Sonning care home last month, so you never know!

A spokesman for The Oracle's press team confirmed that a date for the opening is still to be confirmed.

For those not familiar with the place, Reading (pronounced Redding) is a town in the UK.

... and it's very close to Sonning where George and Amal live...
... and to my hometown's twintown which we'll visit in July.
So - do they already know the opening date???

Carolhathaway - Will you go to Sonning while on your visit, seeing as how you'll be so close? I know I'd want to get a look at the town George is calling home now. Maybe drop in to the pub or see a play at the theater? You might even bump into George!

Lizzy,
I'll try to do so but am not sure if it will fit into our busy schedule, and since we'll be travelling by coach and with a group of about 30, it might be difficult. But we'll see...

My youngest sister will go on a vacation to Mexico with her family, and I asked her if she could get me some Casamigos if she'll find some. So this might solve my problem to get Casamigos.

Carol, doesn't your group want to see where George lives? I'm sure the theater has a history so you could call it an educational field trip Smile lol!

Mm, it is, Katie. Small, but real. And a meal is served first as part of the price of the ticket. They're brilliant at farce, and have many famous British actors as patrons who often appear

Last thing I saw there was High Society. Not. Sure they,d put on King Lear tho!

I've been to several of these theatres about 25 years ago, and they were real theatres where real plays like'Romeo and Juliet' were performed, I saw a few Shakespeare plays there. And the food was always very good.
