A Love Letter To Corner Shops, Which Have Really Saved Us Recently

And, on the other side of the coin, with so many key workers, like nurses, doctors and carers, working all hours, trips to the supermarket can be the putrid cherry on top of a day-from-hell.

While we wait for this to all blow over, save a thought for the corner shop workers of the UK who have been getting up at day-break to make sure we have everything we need to get through the biggest crisis the UK has seen since World War II: tinned goods, trashy magazines and rolls of metallic wrapping paper that have been sat in the window so long, they’ve started peeling.You’ll still be charged full-price mind you.
