How often have I complained about our High Street consisting of only coffee shops and charity shops – not that I have anything against charity shops or coffee shops for that matter? Everyone I talk to says it is sad to see all the independent shop owners go and disappear.
It is especially poignant when this discussions take place in a Tesco, Sainsbury or any of the other supermarket chain stores! Independent shop owners need to earn a living, they are more than a ‘nice to have’ visual backdrop to our lives, they are businesses with real people.
There is one easy way to keep them in our lives, go and do some shopping.
