I READ Jules Serkin’s column in the April 10 edition regarding shopping local. I try to support local shops although I have to say that the ones in Harbour Street in Whitstable are not for me but for the weekend visitors, as is the harbour. I bought a small loaf last weekend in a local baker’s shop. It cost £1.25. For the same loaf in Tesco it costs 80p. There was no discernible difference. And the next day the loaf was hard and inedible. This will not persuade me to “shop local”.
