Ordering stock, taking delivery, shelf stacking, insurance, rent/rates, accounts, checking for under-age boozers, long hours, maintaining a smile - not easy.
But shops like this crucial to a community.

We used to have one like this at the end of the road, they were great little shops in the 50s/60s.

It looks like he had a harder paper round than you, Dave.
