As reported on Dave Walkers blog here, we may lose our SPCK shops, and as a customer of the Norwich shop, I'd be greatly saddened.
Simply it's a similar decision to that of organic foods. Some people avoid organic foods because they believe them to be too expensive and buy a mass produced alternative; being cheaper. Whereas the mass produced alternative is in reality, artificially low in price. Conclusion?
If you want to keep your local shops local, you have to use them. Use them or lose them.
Dave has some helpful campaign ideas, including showing support by publishing this cartoon:
Save the SPCK!
