A group of independent traders on Bristol's Gloucester Road has set up its own online grocery service. It is one of the first of its kind outside London.
Nearly all online grocery shopping in the UK is with big supermarket chains. Many of these stores actually lose money on the service as it costs so much to pick and deliver the goods. So what are the chances for this new, independent website? Robert Murphy reports.
A bus stop in Bristol that is being dismantled and replaced, is being presented today to couple who met there and fell in love. Aly Hussein who runs a business next to the stop on Gloucester Road met his wife, Michala when she used to wait for a bus there every day after work.
The Mayor of Bristol is supporting independent shops on the Gloucester Road this evening. George Ferguson will be welcoming late night shoppers with free mince pies, mulled wine and oysters. More than 50 independent shops will be staying open until 8pm for the next two Thursdays.
