    “I cannot get Pedigree Chum puppy tins in loaf anywhere,” said the customer. “But I sell it,” I said. It’s there on the shelf as one of my standard lines. “I know that,” answered the lady, “but you cannot get it in Morrison’s or Sainsbury anywhere.” “But why bother,” I said, we sell it? “You live in the village and the big supermarkets are at least 15 miles away. Just walk down the street, into the pet shop and buy it.” “I know that,” she said. “But you cannot get it in the big supermarkets.” I feel like putting up a big banner: “Support your local shops, use them or lose them.” Maybe I should phone Mary Portas and find out how to teach customers that there is life outside supermarkets.
