The force is strong in Londis

Londis retailer Alan Fincham was one of thousands of independent retailers marking National Independents’ Day.
He dressed as Darth Vader and his staff dressed up as cartoon characters. “It was a fun day and the customers loved it,” said shop assistant Pat Wier.

Fincham said he recognised the role the local community has played in his store’s success.

He added: “My vision is to create a 21st century newsagent with a strong convenience offer.

“In spite of having a Sainsbury’s store directly opposite, I have still managed to push up sales in the last two years, by offering a specialist service.”
