food, unsanitary, business 

It seems like the Spar's approach to selling "fresh" vegetables is not based around "selling fresh produce" but rather "sell before the bacteria and mould in this plastic packet declares itself an independent state".

@puffinus_puffinus Just as well we don't have that store here then! Sounds ghastly.

@gemlog It's overpriced and poor quality but it exists because the stores are located in places where they have the monopoly. It's designed as a convenience store, the nearest one, that you only really go to because the others are further to walk. They're all over the place in the UK.

@puffinus_puffinus Let me guess: they target the poorest neighbourhoods too?

@gemlog Well, as a village grows in size, there comes a point where it's likely to have a shop. Odds on it's a Spar that fills that need. In towns, they tend to just target neighbourhoods that are further away from other shopping areas. I don't know whether they're poorer areas or not, but it's possible.

@puffinus_puffinus I live in a small town, so I don't know for sure. I read that happens in cities.
