About

This is the biography of a shop. In fact it is this shop, but it could be any corner shop, on any high street, anywhere in Britain today.
Britain is a nation of shopkeepers. Things may have changed since the little French man used Adam Smith’s words to such brilliant, scathing effect, but the fact remains that our high streets, towns and villages are very much reflected in the windows of its corner shops. If you really want to assess the state of a nation, stand behind the counter of a small shop for a day. The faces running the shop may have changed, but the shopkeeper still holds the heart of the nation and the secrets of his customers in hand.
Not that any grand secrets will be divulged herein. But a few stories will be shared. And maybe a few tricks of the trade.
