Local Shopping

I live only part time in Low Bentham but was very 
pleased to see the arrival/expansion/conversion of
 the shop called Antiques into &tiques, selling food.
 On checking it out I found that they are selling 
organic fruit and veg at very competitive prices 
compared to supermarkets, will take orders for 
newspapers and also sell nice bread. I compared the 
price of their smoked salmon with Sainsbury in 
Lancaster. &ntiques price of £2.95 for a pack of 
Atlantic Smoked Salmon compared with (best price) 
2 for £8 at Sainsbury for factory farmed smoked salmon
 (similar weight per pack I think). Of course they 
don't do the range that any supermarket can do, but I
 look in at the shop first even if I am intending to 
go into Lancaster, for instance, and note what I can buy
 here on my return. But are people using this shop? Not 
many, it seems. Isn't it more environmentally 
sustainable to buy locally where possible and only go to
 a distant supermarket for things not available locally 
for a reasonable price? Is there any way that we can 
persuade local people to give it a try?
