Don’t Forget Local

Whatever the merits of doing business online, huge global brands, trading globally, outsourcing, blah blah don’t forget the importance of ‘Local’.

Here’s our local fish-shop, where we bought Saturday night’s dinner. A fish merchants that has stayed the same for decades. It sells fish. No frills, no gimmicks. A huge central table full of fish. An aisle to the left to enter, an aisle to the right to leave.

Survival in business is sometimes about change; but here's a retail business that will hopefully survive without having too change too much.
