(We did have an 80p shop in Crawley last year ... it soon closed.)
We had five £1 shops in Crawley at one point! Reminds me of the Hitchhikers book, where it was only economically viable to have shoe shops everywhere. Hundreds of years from now, archaoologists will dig up a layer of headphones and windscreen wipers.
