Although small the selection of food is quite good would say the range is slightly bigger than most of the singapore stores. Wine selection is pretty good with prices far more reasonable than City shop or pines, had a decent Pinot Grigio for 69rmb and a decect Aussie sauvignon for the same.
Other goodies pickled onions, curry sauces, sponge puddings and decent biscuits again mucher cheaper than the rip off city shop,

That's a bit harsh. The biscuits I bought had more than a month, most expire in December, but the Jaffa cakes I bought were finished in less than a day anyway so it's not an issue.
There are logistics involved in getting the product from England to China, customs and health procedures etc, which could delay things. In HK they sell fresh bread, hot cross buns and other short shelf life products. Usually they expire the same day and that doesn't bother most people who are just happy to get them in HK.
