The Telegraph reports on preparations for the opening in central London of a new co-operative food store offering cut-price products to those of its customers who volunteer to work there. "We'll have the People's Milk, and the People's Loaf. A beautiful big loaf of freshly baked bread - £1.85 to ordinary shoppers. £1 to members," says founder Arthur Potts Dawson. The idea springs from a cooperative model in the United States, Park Slope in New York, which is about 25 years old. Potts Dawson says The People's Supermarket will be communal, it will be friendly, local, cheap and democratic.
