it's a nice idea >> local shops

you would think that living in the area I do (cornwall). local shops would be successful but that is just not the case. we have many shops geared totally for the seasonal visitors, selling tourist trinket stuff (probably made in china).
but more and more the big super-stores/supermarkets the nearest an 18 mile round trip. but we use it most weeks it is a shame that local shops just cannot compete, and that the price is all that seems to matter.
oh well! the video says it better than I can.

Yeah same here too... all of the local shops have been replaced by big chains

It is such a shame now we have no real choice but to use them, as the alternatives are just not available any more. The apathy of so many of us fuelled by cheaper basic foods has led it to happen world wide.

I agree with the above, seems to happen in the visitor/tourist popular places as much if not more than other areas.
