So do I, and we are very lucky to have 2 good butchers in the town. I usually shop at Waitrose as it is only a 2 minute walk, but some of the prices really do take the piss-40% more for a bag of ice compared to Tesco?I’d much prefer to give my money to small local businesses rather than large corporations. Slightly more expensive but much better quality and it keeps the money in the local economy rather than the pockets of shareholders.
Cobblers.My business has gone through the roof in the last month despite the shop being in the middle of a building site. Three other shoe repair/key cutters have shut down due to death, illness and a forced closure in the area and i am getting all their customers. Takings going up to pre-pandemic levels so i can employ my old apprentice again just when he needs it the most due to the crisis.
This is why bluemoon is a joy to me . Cost of living crisis and the price increase for a bag of frozen water in waitrose crops up . Waitrose is great on a Monday morning for half price meat and fish on the counters. Booths is also cheaper than my local butcher for most cuts of meat . Shame as I like the banter and giving the local butcher the trade . Booths also do a weekly fresh meat and fish deal starting and changing every Thursday.

But the other day I went into Tesco as I was passing by. I needed some chicken thighs for a coupld of recipes I do. 12 big thighs for £4.75 was a bloody bargain. That's 6 meals. Add a few veg etc and it's £1 per meal(plus gas/elec).
