that has been over the past 7 years; no surprise as the world has changed and online shopping has exploded (the equivalent of Mail Order years ago - then a tiny area of retail).

And pubs are closing at a rate of 24 a week.

One in three are gone, since the seventies.

Most of us now buy our booze in the supermarket.

Yes and further compounds total lack of interpersonal contact; these days internet clicks are "friends". As a species we have "lost it".

My friend in the US walks into her local foodstore, takes several items from the shelves - and leaves with them in her bag, without interacting with anyone.

Her credit card (of which the store has details) is automatically debited - and she receives a itemised list via the internet.

When initially registering for the service, she was provided with a fob which activates when she enters - verifying who she is. And the items taken are recorded by in-store wi-fi.


Impersonal now enters retail...
