Re: It's the world we live in

I used to buy stuff from the local shop for more pounds because buying stuff over the internet took too long. Unfortunately, by the power of the leveraged buy-out, my local Maplin is no more. And conversely I find myself wasting time going to a local shop* when it would be quicker to have gone to the net first because the local shop doesn't have whatever it is I'm looking for anyway.

*Although recently a local shop did point me to https://www.screwsline.co.uk/ when they didn't have what I needed.
