Another prompt, and another source of ideas. What will I make of this, and will I do things in order?!
Anyway, do I shop local? Well, to a point. I shop at places in the town centre that are usually part of national chains. There aren’t that many small, local shops around me that I have a use for. That’s the sad, harsh reality of my town centre. The shops that exist there are largely all part of national chains. Greggs, Home Bargains, HMV, Primark, none of these can be defined as local businesses, they just so happen to be large companies with stores local to me. If I were to use a small business for any reason, the odds are it would be an online order of some kind, and they’d actually be quite far removed from me!
